2nd december

It has been so cold here today, and even snowed a little this morning it felt so christmassy, after taking my daughter to school i needed warming up so i had warm porridge and listened to doris day christmas album......................it doesn't get much better than that ! and to keep up the christmas feeling it was our village christmas fayre tonight, now i don't live in a paticulary large village but there is a good village community, we have a summer fete which now goes on for a week, and lots of little events throughtout the year................and the christmas fayre which i love, in the middle of the village is a duckpond surrounded by trees which has christmas lights put up around it ( i think the ducks love it, it makes them feel special) and the few shops we have( a co-op, butchers, post office, chemist and newsagents) get festive with lights and christmas trees protuding from the buildings, there is also fairground rides, hook a duck, sweet stalls, mulled wine, santas grotto, the local garden centre selling xmas trees, craft stalls, hot dog stands and the local baptist church opens it doors to sell hot drinks at 10p you just can't go wrong, a good time was had by all......................even if we were freezing !!
