Shopping day

It's twirly, dark and I am just feeling the beginnings of sore throat and hurty ears. Bloody typical, every end of term, particularly Autumn Term I succumb to bugs. Well, I've no time to be ill today so I will be taking max strength drugs shortly. 
The HG has to work right up to Christmas Eve so today we are off out and about shopping like maniacs. 

Got a lot to fit in! We need to buy the last few bits n bobs for gifts, we need to go have a cooked breakfast at the posh garden centre ( ! ), we need to call at the local cheeeeeeese shop for the cheeeeeese and the close by farm shop for my annual sack of spuds. Then we are off for some pampering at the beauty salon! I'm having my eyebrows ripped off my face again and he's having the back and shoulder massage I bought him for his birthday! Then it's off to the seaside to get his Christmas present from me. A fishing suit. I can't be out too long because I need longer these days to get ready for a night out. It's the staff do tonight. It was paid for by mine and my partner in crime at works' lottery winnings! We've done the Eurolottery all year and we won enough to pay for our Christmas dinner and a cocktail! Although I have not told you about what happened last Friday when I went out for festive cocktails!! ( I was absolutely trollied!!! ) I may decide to have a mocktail instead! 

Last nights Carol concert was outstanding. It was in the 700 year old City Priory. There was an orchestra, the choir, school children from four schools ( including mine! ) and readings from a posh lady! The vicar was suitably witty and the children were marvellous! 

The huge candelabras looked like they were floating Hogwarts style! 
This is just the side chapel - the carvings are exquisite. 
It really is a beautiful building and I'm feeling suitably festive now despite my ears hurting from the reindeer earrings I wore last night!! It didn't finish until 10pm! 

Right that's yer lot, it's 6.26am and I need to get cracking!  
Lots of love from

  1. What a fantastic setting for carols - absolutely gorgeous.
    I hope the encroaching aches and pains get the messages and disappear quickly.
    Good luck with the shopping and OF COURSE you need breakfast at the garden centre. Emjoy!

  2. Have a good day and a fantastic night. Perhaps a drop of that toffee vodka would soothe the sore throat, and another drop would make you forget about the hurty ears.
