Too early for the "C" word... @mcrsanta

Guess who I stumbled upon, looking all forlorn and in pieces, back on 30 October? Horribly and annoyingly early, Manchester's Zippy Father Christmas was about to be assembled and hoisted into  place for the lights switch-on last Friday (8th November). It's far too early for anyone to feel remotely festive, but on this isle of poverty and inequality perhaps we all need any excuse to have fun?...  Ready or not, the many city centre Manchester Christmas Markets commence this Friday and will run for six weeks. Rest assured that I will hold off until December to go- and to blog about them.

Meanwhile, my monthly guest post for Smitten by Britain takes us to medieval Newark in Notts.

A post for the Ruby Tuesday Too meme.


  1. nice photo, have a good Tuesday

    much love...

  2. it doesn't seem like it's that time yet does it?!!

  3. I know what you mean Chrissy, its happening here way too early also.
    Btw when I tried to read your Smitten by Britain post, the link isn't working for me.

  4. I think they still have some work to do there to set up everything for the Christmas market. I like this season. I'm always enchanted by Christmas decorations and markets!

  5. Tes posts sont toujours très intéressants et j'aime ton blog sympathique !
    Very nice post! Thanks & Welcome for your comment and your next visit to my blog.
    Have a nice day! Cath.
