Today we went to Chatsworth. Its not too far away from where we live. It was lovely. Cold with a sprinkling of snow - very festive. The water in the fountain in the courtyard was frozen and Mr and Mrs Mallard were having a lovely time skating around. In one of the christmas trees a little robin sat and watched the visitors having a lovely time. There was a brass band playing jolly christmas tunes and a choir singing in a barber shop styleeee (i think) excellent. We had hot chocolate with lashings of cream and marshmallows. Shopping was done with some great bargains - some christmas items were half price - lovely. I saw several people that I knew an old work colleague from school, a neighbour and her family and another neighbour with her grandchild. All having a lovely time. We didn't stay too long as it was sooooo cold but nonetheless it was very festive and a good time was had by all. Nellie was most excited to see the deer in the parkland - look she cried - deer and they are moving - lol just like when she was 5 - she is now 16 and would be a bit cross if she knew I had put it on here. Ah well she will never know.
I did take photos but I cannot find the download lead anywhere. When I find it or when I can use Nellie's puter I WILL put on some piccies. Its not the same without them.
I also took delivery today of the vintage feedsack I ordered from America on ebay. Its loverly. Been admiring it lots and lots.
