Bright Lights, Sparkly Shoes and Strong drinks

So….Christmas is finally in the air. The coke advert has been on tv and decorations are going up everywhere! (Except here….I need to finish painting my lounge. Haha)

But I did get to enjoy the magical sights of Birmingham this weekend! The market was in town and it was beautiful.

It was super busy (except for first thing in the morning, everyone had too many tankards the night before) but that just added to the atmosphere. It was the perfect place to get away and enjoy some time with my better half. Annnnd I got to go shopping! Bonus.

The market was full of traditional wooden toys; we got some for our daughter and Christmas decorations and amazing food! These are chocolate covered, flavoured marshmallows. It’s like heaven in the palm of your hand!

Now this year we didn’t come home with a tankard….they were the same as last years (boorrring) but we did keep our hot chocolate mugs! The hot choclate by the way was to die for. Super rich and creamy but not too sickly. I’m definitely making some in my crock pot this winter!
