Windy :S

It’s been extremely windy here over the last few days, and on Wednesday the strong gusts of wind blew one of our fence panels down ;>.>

So we learned one of the “joys” of owning a house; if something breaks, you have to fix it yourselves :P

The good thing is that we didn’t have to wait for somebody else to get around to doing it, because it was our responsibility we just got on and did it that evening after I finished work……although working out in the dark when the security light keeps turning off every few minutes is a bit awkward ^_^;

Christmas Markets 2017

This year we only managed to get out to see 2 Christmas markets, but they were both good :)

They were both markets which we go to every year; Bristol and Bath.

The Bristol market seemed better than than it has the last couple of years….the stalls looked more varied and the “signature” buildings were all really interesting to see :)

The Bath Christmas market is always very good, and it’s easy to see why it’s so popular ^^

It gets bigger and bigger every year, and it’s now spread out over quite a few streets.

There are some really nice stalls there, but as the day goes on it gets soooooo busy that it becomes almost impossible to actually look at anything on the stalls ;>.>

If you want to have a proper look then you definitely need to start there early ;P

Christmas 2017

It’s been a while since I was last able to write a post; there have been a few big changes for us; some happy and some sad.

A happy change for us is that we’ve bought our first house ^-^
We spent a month redecorating it before moving in, and it’s been brilliant moving from our small rented flat to a house of our own :)

Here is an example before and after:

Now that things have started to settle down again I will be able to start updating my blog more regularly again ;)


We’re having quite a subdued Christmas this year, and although someone is unable to be with us it’s a time of year when I will always try to remain positive and keep a smile on my face.

Merry Christmas everybody, happy holidays, and I hope the future brings good things for all…..regular service will resume shortly :)
