Hello friendly people.
Thank you so much for popping by. I wanted to do a Cotswold post today because I am discovering that they do Christmas really well around here.
As the teachers were on strike I took the chance to head off with the girls to the lovely Christmas market in Cirencester. Cirencester is a stunner of a town, really beautiful. I have lived there in my past and it was brilliant, though I have to say that Hilly Town suits me better. It was only a little Christmas market but it was pretty and full to the brim of lovely things.
Isn't this tree covered in felt goodies cute? We were very taken with it, there were lots of beautiful things on this stall.
And how is this for Christmassy? A little old fashioned sweet shop we passed on the way back to the car. It looked so warm and inviting after a chilly, rainy walk through town. I resisted though, because two little girls I know have lots of lovely sweet treats in store for them over the next few weeks. I was very good actually and hardly bought anything, I just drunk in the atmosphere and thought how lovely it is that I can look at lots of these things now and think "I could make that if I really wanted it," when two years ago they would have been way beyond me. I did buy a few little bits and pieces but they are for another time.
I hope you are all beginning to find the joy of Dubuss (B's word for Christmas) sneaking into your life.
