Christmas in the home of a ladysnail...

...here is a picture of our Christmas tree. the first time we have had space for a tree in nearly four years! i think pumpkin who is our guinea pig doesn't like it as it gets more attention than her. she has been more vocal than normal though i think she is getting used to it now and all its twinkly lights. the bottom picture is of a Christmas pudding bauble that i made. i made one last year as the mister's mum has quite a few handmade decorations on her tree and they look beautiful. so this year at the Harrogate stitching and craft fair i bought some bits to make another one! i felt so relaxed while i was making it and it is one of my favourite Christmas decorations.





Christmas on the streets of Manchester...

...these photographs have been sitting in the camera for over a month and today i finally transferred them to the computer. i thought i had best share them now rather than later as the Christmas season is approaching fast. the first photo is of the main man himself, Santa. he sits over the town hall entrance on a plinth thing and looks over the Christmas markets there. the chocolate covered fruit stall is my favourite stall and i would recommend a wander round the stalls. there are also some in between selfridges and marks and sparks bit. Santa was switched on in early November and there were some fireworks which explains the next photo. the third photo is of the large cone like tree that can be found in Piccadilly Gardens.
