Originally I had planned to spend Christmas in Edinburgh, but during my epic Asia Adventure I decided to spend it with Kim and her family in Congleton instead. So I was reunited with Kim sooner than planned! Happy days.
|Kim and I together again!|
I travelled up to Congleton by train from Coventry on the 21st of December. Kim's parents had very kindly booked us in at a B & B attached to a local pub, The Queens Head, just around the corner from where they were staying with friends. During my time here I went into Manchester by train to go shopping, and we also took a trip to the visit more of Kim's family in Fulford, not too long of a drive away near York. We got to see their friends barn conversion they have half started. It was amazing and something you wouldn't get at home!
|Those red phone boxes haven't got old yet...|
|Legitimate mistletoe! I was excited.|
|Christmas dinner number one|
|The view of the Fulford countryside from the attic room|
We had an awesome Christmas Eve night out, in our specially bought sweaters.
|Once again, any excuse to dress up!|
|Can't miss an opportunity for a ridiculous photo shoot. Somehow this hat thing started in Asia...|
|I love our ridiculousness|
|These are antlers, obviously...|
And a really nice Christmas Day where I was entirely too spoiled.
|Christmas morning run to the house in our pjamas, with the expensive bottle of champagne we were given by the pub!|
So although there was no snow, my second winter Christmas was a really nice one! I'm hoping next year my family might come and that we might go somewhere where we can be sure to have snow!
|Amazing Christmas dinner complete with turkey and cranberry|
|And of course, must wear ridiculous Christmas hats from crackers.|
