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
You too, Cher. So sorry about Maisie.ReplyDelete
P.S. This is the last comment until you make it simple to do so.
Dear Tom, He who knows all about computers will be arriving on Christmas Eve and I shall ask him to make my blog comment friendly.Delete
What a beautiful olde village! So very charming. How old are these buildings?ReplyDelete
I've been wondering how you've been doing. I hope you're okay.
Merry Christmas to you!
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.Delete
you lead such a picturesque life! what a town to shop in. xoReplyDelete
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. /:-)Delete
So very sorry to hear about Maisie. Wishing you two a very Merry Christmas and blessed New Year.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Doc. And the same good wishes to you and yours.Delete
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'!ReplyDelete
We were in Frome, Gary.Delete
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!
Lovely photos, happy ChristmasReplyDelete
Thank you, Lilac, a happy christmas to you and frevent wishes for a better growing garden with more sunshine for 2013!Delete
What a quaint looking village high street!ReplyDelete
I love to browse in the small shops and am always drawn to the garden and flower shops.
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!ReplyDelete
Have a lovely Christmas holiday (and enjoy the super new laundry treatment on those celebration tablecloths when the partying is over!)
Merry Christmas Rosemary! Hope some sun will come to your heart and loving family and a fat Santa will brighten up your life :)ReplyDelete
Dear Bozena, How lovely to hear from you. I do like your cheerful red hat and dress, what a happy photo.ReplyDelete
We are all ready to celebrate Christmas, just waiting for Wee One and her partner to arrive.
Wishing you a very Happy Christmas.
Merry Christmas Rosemary! Please accept my condolences on the loss of the beautiful Maisie.ReplyDelete
