It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
Every where you go
That's what you call a tree!
I don't usually get 'into' the Christmas spirit.  The past few years my mood hasn't lifted enough to allow much festive fun.  In fact, the "C" word brought more issues - panic of putting on a brave face, not letting it slip that I had been off work for months, trying to get gifts when you can hardly leave your bed, trying not to cry at every little thing, my heart racing at thoughts of how many terrible ways my hubby could die due to bad weather - anyways you get the picture.

This year is different.  For our anniversary in June my hubby bought tickets for the Christmas markets in Prague.  A lovely city break just me & Mr Brown, something to look forward to.  My mood is holding up with only a few dark patches these last few weeks, so I was in a great place for enjoying this gift.

Scotland is cold so the weather wasn't going to be an issue. I packed up my thickest cardies, grabbed some new gloves, a cute knitted hair band & a poncho!  A new look & a new city to explore.

Prague is a beautiful city, the buildings are very pretty & the people were very polite.

It was so easy to walk to all the sights from our hotel so my feet took a pounding but I loved it.

Back to work tomorrow but for the first time in years I am feeling the Christmas cheer.  Enjoy some lovely pictures of Prague & Christmas, just wished you had smell a blog because the market was filled with the scent of gingerbread, pretzels, cakes & the famous Prague Ham.

Do you always enjoy Christmas? Ever been to the Christmas markets?

  1. Hi Clare, thanks for following us (Vida Moda) on twitter. Reading your blog as a result and enjoying your post about your trip to Prague. We went to Prague about 12 years ago on December 10th! Fabulous city, one of the few European Cities that wasn't subjected to the massive destruction of World War II. It was like stepping back in time. We really enjoyed it and the shops were amazing! Definitely a trip worth making :)


    1. Found you after Mrs BeBe shared the wrap post, which I have added to my Christmas list! Prague was beautiful buildings look timeless & shopping was good! Thanks for stopping by! Merry Christmas x
