11 June 2011 – rain, rain go away

IMG_4774

It’s been pouring down here and looks like it’s set for the day. Pity because I wanted to finish off the front garden but never mind it will wait. We went into town first thing to get fathers day sorted. I got a water bottle and runners bum bag for CJ to give Commando and Commando got some chocolates for his dad.

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. Continue reading
