I love the anticipation, the careful thought and planning that goes in to buying or making gifts for loved ones.
We have several Christmas traditions and one of them is going to Bath Christmas Market. This year was slightly different as I went twice, my Grandparents were visiting on the first day we had planned to go so we took them along with us and the second trip I went with friends.
Day One at Bath Christmas Market:
We started with the traditional ‘Stew in a Box’. No matter what time we plan to leave somehow we always end up arriving in Bath about lunch time.
Browsing around we found these gorgeous ear muffs which we tried on my nephew but like all hats, within seconds they were off his head and in his hands! You can tell by his face in the first picture that he’s thinking ‘will you get this thing off me!’
As much as I love browsing the stalls at Bath Christmas Market, listening to carollers and feeling Christmassy, I think my favourite part is spending time with family. I love that whenever we get together, the same stories are told and we normally end up laughing, reminiscing and learning our family history.
Day Two at Bath Christmas Market:
This time we went on a Saturday and, oh my word, the market was busy! It was a battle to get to the front of the stalls to have a look around. We browsed a few and found some gorgeous dinosaurs which were bought and clutched with delight for the rest of the day.
