We went into town today to do some Christmas shopping, and it was really festive and fun (somewhat to my surprise). I wanted to show you some photos, but I will cheat a little and start with a photo from yesterday morning first. This morning I was delighted to be able to sleep past 5:45 a.m.!
Today was a beautiful, if very cold, day. On our walk into town we saw a family of snowmen:
The Dafter was, I thought, looking very smart. Her striped leggings obviously completely dazzled the camera!
The farmer’s market was on today:
One of the stalls at the market was selling kilts and everything you need to go with a kilt: sporrans [wee purses worn in front of the kilt], dirks [wee blunt dagger to tuck into your kilt hose], ghillie brogues [shoes worn with kilts] and feather hackles [no idea what this is].
There was a lot of music in town: a men’s choir in the shopping centre, a mixed choir at the market and also a brass band.
We got back home just at sunset, about 3:15:
After a delicious tea made by Michael, it’s time to make a fire.
