Week 50 2012


Please excuse the delay in posting, I nipped over to the UK for a weekend with family and friends and it was lovely.  They have Christmas Markets too – with delicious street food which is so tempting!  Like a night market here in the summer, but with hats, scarves and gloves.

Lights at the airport
For those of us who like to count our ‘sleeps’ until Christmas M&S has a helpful Santa.  I couldn’t resist taking a photo…

There are lots of Christmassy event coming up. There are a few Carol concerts this week, but I haven’t heard of any happening in the week running up to Christmas.  If you hear of any, then please let me know.

In the meantime, enjoy all the upcoming event.

Best wishes,

P.S.  I hired a car for the trip to the UK and there was an all-singing all-dancing in car stereo system that tried so hard to keep me up to date with what was playing...  Here is my favourite photo of my visit...
