Today the Christmas lights were switched on in town. We missed it, although we did go to look at the German market. What is it about us and Christmas lights? For all my bah humbug I do like the Christmas market, lots of little stalls with all sorts of interesting things, handmade wooden toys, scarves, slippers, jewellery. There is mulled wine and German sausages, the smell alone has probably made me put on a pound or two.
We didn’t actually eat any. The rain came down in such a torrent we ended up running back to the car with water running into our shoes from streets that were rapidly turning into rivers. I think I’m beginning to develop webbed feet.
