I am coming to the end of 4 days off work, making a lovely weekend extended to a 6 day weekend! Its been a nice way to start the festivities!
On Friday, my parents & I headed to Bath for the Christmas Market. I have to say it is one of the best ones I have been to and I am gutted I didn’t have more money to spend on the day. There were lots of stalls with unique gifts, food and drink and I could have easily spent a fortune. However, I am on a tight budget this month which helped and meant that I didnt waste my money on things I didn’t need. My parents however brought an abundance of things from chutneys to wreaths, however I have to say our best purchase was some fudge. I love fudge and I love it even more when it is Christmas Cake flavoured & looked like a Christmas Cake too. It was sooooo good! I am gutted I only got 1 small slab, I could easily eat so much more of it! Disappointingly, I only got 2 photo’s of the day. Well, I say its disappointing, it just means you will need to head there for yourselves and see just how good it is!
Saturday, for those of you that follow me on Facebook will know that Matt was working on Saturday unexpectedly, so I took full advantage and decided to put some Christmas decorations up! However, I cant help but feel that compared to my parents house that our home is so bare! However, I need to keep reminding myself that we have only been here a year, my parents have been buying Christmas decorations now for over 30 years!

Then Monday, Hayley & I had a date booked in for a spot of Christmas shopping and a spot of brunch! It was really nice to have just a chilled Monday around the shops, catching up and ticking things off the shopping list! I budgeted and spent all my budget, but I got what I needed and managed to do some window shopping too! We even managed to sneak a trip to our favourite garden centre where the Christmas goodies are by the truck load!
Its been a lovely long weekend and today was even better as I got my TREE!!! But That’s for another post!
