My gorgeous girl came home from university yesterday for the Christmas holidays. It's the first time she's been home since we dropped her off on the 23rd of September and I've missed her so much.
She's just been sitting end of term exams before she broke up so we're keeping our fingers crossed that she's done well. She's certainly loving her course and has done well in all her assessments so far.
Daniel's managed to get Christmas off work so I'm very excited that my family will all be together for Christmas and for an extended period afterwards too. His girlfriend will be celebrating with us, as she did last year, so they'll be arriving home, hopefully, on the 23rd.
Before we left Nottingham, we called in to the town centre to visit Winter Wonderland, Nottingham's Christmas market, ice rink, bars and food hall.
There's over fifty Tudor style cabins selling a good range of products, as well as traditional fairground rides for the children.
I was very tempted by the food stalls, they were selling all manner of delicious goodies, but I managed to resist.
My favourite part of any market are the craft stalls and there was a good range of products here.
These type of events certainly get me in the Christmas spirit and I feel that, having my girl back, I can start getting in the Christmas spirit even more now. The Christmas tree's going up today!
