I went to Nottingham yesterday to finish my Christmas shopping and the rest of Nottingham had the same idea!!! It was heaving with bodies. The Christmas lights were up and the decorations are all out and it looked very festive. It was one of those days where it didn’t get light early so the lights stood out and then the weather cleared and it was a very cold, frosty, sunny day! I also got the last of my Christmas presents and three Birthday presents!!! (it is really annoying all these people who have Birthdays near Christmas!!!)
I also had another surprise in the post this morning, our first Christmas card! It is from DH’s cousin who we think may be spending Christmas in Australia where their daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren live, hence the card arriving early!
We had lunch with our good friends today, one of the Birthdays, and it was really nice break to the day. I have another basket of ironing to do tonight and then catch up tomorrow of business work. Friday evening I am going to get all the presents wrapped and at the weekend more baking, this time mince pies and Christmas cookies. Photos to follow.
DH and I watched the final Grand Prix of the season and Lewis Hamilton did it! World Champion for the second time. Saw this picture in the paper and thought it was very clever. We, through our business, supply Mercedes AMG but our parts are not on the race cars!
At least today the weather made if feel Christmasy! I hope everyone is having a Thrilling Tuesday.
Hugs, Susie x
