Final preparations for the festive season during this last week before Christmas led me to the Winchester Cathedral Christmas Market this weekend.
I adore markets, fairs and fetes and bazaars. Practicality has never been my forte though, and every year I am always either a wadrobe-disaster in numerous knitted garments, or presentable but completely frozen. This year was no exception.
I looked simple, but somewhat presentable, however I was ready to leave, as soon as I arrived. I was frosty, much like the beloved snowman. After a small purchase of ribbons and a few decorations, I hastily left to return to my well-heated motor-vehicle.
The chilly weather did allow me to relish my hot lemon and sugar crepe much more than I otherwise would have done. But, next year, it’s definitely back to wandering through market stalls in overworn, unsightly jumpers and garish scarfs! Keep warm, and happy holidays everyone! X
