Pieces of Christmas

After visiting the German market today at Edinburgh’s Christmas festival, I am now going to associate Christmas with German sausages and sauerkraut. It was standing-room-only on the train down, but the Sharpes and I made it down in one piece (and made it back again, despite our train getting stuck behind a slower one and being 45 minutes late…). It was very good to get out of Town for a day. We wandered around the fair, ate sausages, and warmed up in the National Gallery.

I was excited and surprised to find that a couple of stalls in the German market sold ornaments almost exactly like the ones we had as I was growing up. I guess from our Dutch side of the family? So I bought a few to put on my very own tree. I bought a small nutcracker, too, since my mum loves them.
