Blogmas Day Five - Anniversary Artisan Market and Purchases

 


We went out to breakfast for our wedding anniversary.  

A bacon bun and a pot of tea for Alan and a Linda McCartney sausage bun and a large coffee for me.  Followed with a lovely wander around the Artisan Christmas Market at Wyresdale Park


We didn't buy much; well we didn't need much but what we did buy was special.


I bought a couple of handmade Christmas tree ornaments, including one for my Mum,and Alan bought a couple of things for my stocking (I tried my bestest not to peek).   He also bought a lovely wreath for his front door which he also wants to take to Scotland with us if we can get there at some point over the Christmas break.  We like to put something Christmassy and special on his mum and dads' grave.

It was a lovely day and we ended it by having tea together, drinking wine, and re-watching our wedding DVD which was filmed by my dad so is extremely special.


Day five's Advent calendar contents and my new Christmas tree ornaments.

I hope you had a good weekend too, what did you get up to?

  1. The knotted Christmas tree is very clever. Saturday at School Xmas Fair was fun, and topped up my Tooth Fairy Fund. Sunday equally good - beginning to feel a lot like Christmas round here....

    1. She had some lovely things made using macrame, but I was very restrained and just got the Christmas tree decoration. I'm glad the School Xmas Fair was fun; it makes for a lovely atmosphere doesn't it.

  2. What a special day that was, our weekend was not as exciting but a lot calmer than things have been of late which is always good. As you know my son has epilepsy and last Sunday he had 13 seizures in a row which was awful and meant hospital admission on code red with me in the front and an extra paramedic following the ambulance in case he went into respiratory arrest and then whilst I was sat beside him in resus I had a TIA, what a stupid woman, the nurse said she watched it happening as she was dealing with my son ,so we were in resus together ,side by side , apparently my blood pressure was 210/120 , you could have knocked me down with a feather. Never mind, all over now and son is going through his usual recovery with extra TLC from us so yesterday I helped him wrap his presents which was lovely. Oh, I also bought a new handbag, joy of joys , I do love my bags so all in all , lucky to be well and warm, x

    1. Oh gosh, poor you ... both of you. I've had blood pressure that high on a few occasions and I know how it makes you feel. I'm glad that you've both come out the other side of what must have been a harrowing weekend. xx

    2. Thank you, it's always worrying when he has so many seizures but the hospital and paramedics are brilliant . x

  3. I spent it with a sick husband who slept for most of it. My grandson and I spent a lot of time baking cookies. I also tried to make an origami flapping bird only to discover that I am not very good at origami. :(

    1. I hope he's feeling a bit better now. I could never master the flapping bird in origami, but I did used to turn out little boats and furniture. My sofa was a masterpiece. :-)

  4. How very lovely your anniversary celebrations sound.
    Saturday afternoon I spent a very pleasant couple of hours at a friends place making a ' twiggy star ' - a sort of rustic version of an evergreen wreath. Husband stayed home with dogs and watched football - apparently the dogs are avid followers of the World Cup!!

    1. That sounds like you both did something you enjoyed ... and our dogs fall asleep during any sport that Alan watches.

  5. That macrame tree is so cute! I might Google that to see if it is easy to make!
    Glad you enjoyed your anniversary weekend!

    1. It looks relatively easy if you know anything about macrame, it's something that I don't seem to be able to master!

  6. What a lovely outing. I love your purchases. I have a weakness for English robins and the macrame tree is so clever.

    1. It was a lovely morning. Robins are just so festive aren't they and they hold a special place in mine and Mum's hearts.

  7. I really like that tree ornament and now am busy trying to figure out how I can make some for my tree.

    God bless.

    1. It looks deceptively simple doesn't it, but I daren't try unravelling it to work it out as I just know I will never get it back to its former self!!
