I have a cold.
Not surprising really seeing as most of the people I work with have been full of colds these past few weeks, it was bound to get me sooner or later.
I was very glad to arrive home on Friday and have the weekend stretching out in front of me.
No commitments to be anywhere at anytime but with various possibilities out there if we wanted.
Saturday morning was cold but bright and I felt like a walk in the fresh air would help with my head full of stuffiness.
A Christmas fair was being held at a local plant nursery and so that's where we headed, only stopping for a quick photo opportunity.
G is always on the look out for the Jack Reacher books by Lee Child and was very pleased to find two more to add to his collection. S and I found some pretty earrings but my favourite buy was this pink snowflake Pyrex dish.
I have seen them on Pinterest but never one in the flesh. I only paid a pound for it from a bric a brac stall and was gob smacked to see the them selling online for over £100. It's going to have pride of place on the dresser this Christmas.
Housework, a little spot of present wrapping and then some feet up time followed before we wrapped up warm once again and took ourselves down to the local high street for their annual Christmas event.
This can be a bit of a hit or miss affair, this year's was more the latter but we do like to support local events if we can.
I do like the snowmen which adorned the tops of each of the Christmas trees lining the street.
The heads are made from those plastic topiary balls which have been sprayed white and black.
The charity shop I used to volunteer in many moons ago had stayed open late for the event and so we nipped in and I found this pretty heart decorated spice rack for £1.00, something I've been looking out for.
Even after a goodnight's sleep I was loathe to get up this morning. I felt so lethargic and was all bunged up again.
I laid there thinking of all that I needed to do but instead of getting up and setting to G got up made me breakfast in bed and there we stayed for a while longer to watch one of my favourite movies of all time.
The Bishop's Wife.
If you haven't seen it then you must.
Cary Grant and David Niven.
After watching the movie I did get up and do the majority of those jobs which I needed to do.
Just at a slower, my head is full of cold pace.
