During the summer, you might recall me mentioning that the town of Kelso was in an uproar as new pavements were being laid. Well I have to say, it does look better, but, and there is a big but here, can you believe it --- the work is still going on! Yes, the town is still in an uproar. There are still red and white barriers all over the place and I'm afraid I can't see an end to it before Christmas. Why on earth has it taken so long?
Stop Press: Christmas is definitely on its way. Kelso town's Christmas decorations have been brought out of wherever they are stored. The tree is already in place in the town centre, so it won't be long before we have the switching on ceremony. I have to say that the Christmas lights in the town always look very pretty. Long may it last.
Our nephew is being Christened on Sunday. Yes Christopher Ian, to give him his full title will be going to church for the first time. I do hope the weather stays dry for his big day.
Talking about the weather, we have had some wonderful sunny days this autumn. How lovely to see all the autumn colours in their full splendour. Though I should add it is getting much colder now. In fact my friend and I went through a snow shower on our trip to Newcastle this week. Snow in November!!
Yes I was at Newcastle again this week. More Christmas presents bought so I think I am almost ready for Christmas now. I also strolled down to Fenwicks Christmas windows. They always put on a wonderful display for Christmas. Don't miss them if you happen to be in Newcastle. Of course we had out usual liquid lunch at the M&S Deli Bar before dashing for the bus to come home. The bus was packed again this week - standing room only at one point. I'm not sure whether I will get there any more before Christmas. On the other hand, I would miss a trip to that wonderful city.
By the way, if you are looking for a Christmas present for the bookworms among your family and friends, you might like to give my novel a thought. It is called Only Twelve Days and is a heart-warming romance. Have you read Fifty Shades.... Well, - it is nothing like that :-)
Available from Amazon so you don't even have to go out of the house to buy it. It can be delivered straight to your door! I gather you can even have it gift-wrapped!.
I think that is all for the moment.
Take care everyone and have a brilliant day wherever you are.
