Anyway, I went with my best friend Robyn who now lives and works in Manchester. She is so grown up now, she has her own flat, earns a full wage - she pays bills! She's a proper adult now! Anyway, we went to the Christmas Market and spent many hours wandering around the little huts and spending far too much money. I got some Christmas Presents though...
We started the day by visiting what was probably my favourite stall of the day. It was called Sugar 245 and sold the most a-ma-zing marshmallows I have ever tasted! When we saw the stand we tried some of the free samples and exchanged the 'these are amazing and I can't speak because they are so good' look. Once we'd finished eating our way through the free samples we decided to buy a pack between us (we didn't want to spend all our money on the first stall).

I loved the way Manchester Market was set out. There were little clusters of stalls set on a trail around the streets, and at every cluster, there was one stall that always caught my eye. In October (when Christmas Decorations come in to shops far too soon!) my mum saw a giant Santa that she really liked for our hallway, but she never bought it. Anyway, there were loads of stalls with similar things and I decided to buy my Mum and Dad a giant reindeer for Christmas! I really didn't think it through at the time because I had to get it home on the train along with my unnecessarily large handbag, and overnight suitcase...and my mum was picking me up from the station so I had to hide it in a giant bag - very subtle!
They liked it anyway!
|These are similar to what is now in our my hallway! Cute!|
Manchester Christmas Market has closed now, but it'll be back next year and I'm looking forward to going. I would completely recommend going to a Christmas market...it got me in the festive spirit!
Happy New Year!
