A very Happy Christmas to you all - that is if I have any readers left!

We went to the "Treacle Market" this morning, which took on a good Christmassy air, even if there was a very brisk and chilly wind a-blowing!

We went fairly early, by the time we were ready to come home, it was heaving! There were a lot of foodie stalls:-

This man always has beautifully fresh vegetables. There were also bread stalls, with 'artisan' bread, gorgous-looking loaves with nuts, fruits, onion, garlic in (not altogether!) and foccaccia, ciabattam everything you can think of. The loaves are lovely, but from experience we know that they go stale very quickly, are absolutely huge, and there are only two of us! So we came away with a mini pannetone!

There were various fast food stalls:-

If you couldn't get what you want here I would be very surprised!

And there were lots of craft stalls, stalls with pictures and odds and ends, and a couple of book stalls, where I found three books, one of which will be a present for one of the gardening women in my family!

So now its nearly Christmas. It will be very quiet this year, as we are on our own.

Happy Christmas to you all!
