Excellent work by Corporation – they made it look so Christmassy!
The fair was very good too (especially the food stalls, but I would say that. I like food). It was lacking something though – needed hot chocolate! . Coffee is OK but not festive enough. Perhaps a barista next year? We did stay a while though, saw plenty of friends (some we haven’t seen for a long time) and we bought some lovely presents (and food. did I mention I like food?).
The huge slab of Wensleydale we bought should last us through till 1st December!
The journey in was quite nasty though – the absolute cold desolation of Swinton Station and crowded train (we did get seats, but not together)
The long queue at the Taxi rank (although I did wonder if the bloke in leather trousers slightly in front of us was heading up to Corp – he did have that “look” and pondered whether to ask him about a taxi share).
Finally, the horrible wet walk back down to the station (via the Chinese Supermarket though) and the delayed return train.
Normally I’d have taken the car, but Saturdays before Christmas are just not worth contemplating.
Meanwhile, in other news, Wentworth Woodhouse’ sale has fallen through. Again.
