Nottingham By Night

Nottingham Council House all lit up in Christmas colours.

We had another lovely evening on Saturday night.  The Boys and Girlfriend and DH got their Christmas shopping done and I got to have a wander around the stores window shopping.  I then stopped off at my favourite store, John Lewis, for a quick cup of coffee and this was the view from the store windows.

DSC04281I can’t say that I am a fan of these blue lights!  Everyone seems to have them at the moment, but I think they look too stark.

DSC04282When we all got back together we walked down to the Market Square where the Christmas market is on and the ice rink.

DSC04286This picture turned out fuzzy as DH was driving and I was trying to take the picture!  It is a lovely decoration

A not blurry picture from the Nottingham City Council Website!

We all went for a meal at one of our favourite restaurants in Nottingham, Man’s, and it was exactly six months from when we went for my Birthday!  We always have a lovely meal there.

Yesterday DH and I visited all the Aunts, Uncles and Cousins in Nottingham and visited his parents grave to leave a wreath.  It was a lovely day catching up on everyone’s news and we got home about 6.00pm.  This is what I love about Christmas, seeing family and friends and having a lovely social day.

Today was the first day Youngest and I didn’t have to get up to get ready for school, yeah, so we had a late breakfast and I have been finishing the baby quilt and doing grocery shopping for tomorrow (I have cheated and done it on-line!!!).  I just need to sew the binding on and wrap it up and we are seeing the Grandparents tonight for dinner, as they are over from Jersey. The four of us are going out for a meal tonight to catch up (another meal; oh dear I will have to be planning my diet for after the New Year!!!!!)

I hope your day is going well and the plans for the Big Day!

Hugs, Susie x

Even just white is prettier to me! Finished making a gift for my great-nephew for Christmas, so all my gifts are finished!!
