Christmas shopping

I've been out in the rain to do some Christmas shopping.
The light levels are low

and the ironmonger looks as though he is expecting snow.
This is the shop where I bought Wee One's Christmas dress.
I got wet feet, or to be more accurate, a wet foot. But that's only because I stepped backwards and put my foot in the  runnel of water that flows down the centre of the street!
When I got home we lit the wood fire and ate a chocolate from the advent calender.
Fred and Ginger were on t.v.
a sure sign that it's Christmas!
Earlier in the week we had a sunny day.
It feels strange to walk without Maisie
but I went out and gathered some cones to decorate the house.


Wishing you all a very 
Happy Christmas.

  2. What a beautiful olde village! So very charming. How old are these buildings?

    I've been wondering how you've been doing. I hope you're okay.

    Merry Christmas to you!

    1. I was in Frome, which started out as a woolen cloth town in the 15th century. Many of the more interesting houses date from the 17th and 18th centuries. It is a good place to shop because there are a number of craft and individual places, unlike the cities that these days only seem to offer the same large national stores.

    1. Dear Janet - remember that my blog life is highly edited! In reality it is a cold, wet day and I remain heart heavy. But everyone will be home by tomorrow evening and then I shall be smiling. /:-)

  5. What a lovely post Rosemary, and I think I recognise that town, beautiful at this time of year. As for Fred & Ginger being on the television, I wish I was there also. We started Christmas with 'High Society'!

    1. We were in Frome, Gary.
      There used to be a Fred and Ginger film on tv every Boxing Day and I would career around the room with my elder brother imagining that I were Ginger! probably drove our parents mad!

  8. This town is well known for artisan and vintage shops, so it's a good place to poke about, even though I did put my foot in the stream!
    Have a lovely Christmas holiday (and enjoy the super new laundry treatment on those celebration tablecloths when the partying is over!)
