Today we went to Much Wenlock Christmas market. There were loads of stalls selling items ranging from Christmas decorations to food, and dog accessories to clothes. It made me feel really festive and even more excited for the 25th (if that's even possible) - we also saw a pug dressed up as Santa, and who can not be happy at a pug dressed up as Santa?
Afterwards we all trundled off in Christmas jumpers to buy our Christmas tree for home; it turned out to be really fat and bushy, which seems to be a bit of a tradition for us. We decorated it whilst warbling along to the cheesiest of Christmas songs and then I proceeded to hang baubles all over the house to make it look even more festive (see my post on my uni decorations here - I seem to have a thing about putting baubles everywhere).
Hardships often prepare ordinary people for an extraordinary destiny.
