Early on we strolled up into town, because I wanted to get some Christmas cards. Santa’s grotto was being built. The market was in full swing and there is now a definite Christmas spirit going on.
Today is Small Business Saturday, when we the shoppers are encouraged to shop in the smaller shops and give the larger stores a miss. That is very achievable in Warwick, because many of the shops are independent retailers. Having walked around the market, we made our way back to the boat and I got on with cooking lunch, which was Liver and Onions. I had left it cooking in the back cabin stove whilst we were out. The smell was sublime as I opened the slide.
After lunch, I decided to walk back into the town to go to the post office to post a parcel and some cards. The price of postage is really getting stupid and I can see us not sending cards if the price of postage goes up again.
Santa has arrived in Warwick. Santa was sat in his grotto meeting and greeting the children and some of them were adult size children. We are all still kids at heart aren’t we? I know I am. Not sure he would of allowed me to sit on his knee though.
One of Santa’s little helpers. One of Santa’s helpers seemed to have a frightening affect on small children and animals and yet I thought it was very cute, but I love a bear. One thing was certain, he/she was nice and warm. The market place was very busy, as was the rest of the town from what I could see.
Christmas is coming and this year for us will definitely be better than last years.
