Blogmas day 8 & 9 - Chichester Christmas market

Hello there,

I can't believe we're at the end of the first week of December already!

Day 8 of Blogmas saw us taking a trip to Chichester for a bit of Christmas shopping and some lunch. I've mentioned Chichester before on the blog. It's a lovely little town that's just far enough away to make it feel like a day out, but close enough to get there in around 40 mins from Southampton. It also has a great mix of the normal high street shops you'd expect to find plus a good selection of independent shops. It's become a Christmas tradition to have a day out there every year (more about traditions next week).

We didn't realise that the Chichester Christmas market would be there which was a lovely surprise. It's very different to the normal German type markets that seem to the popping up everywhere at the moment. This market was showcasing local producers, food, crafts and even had donkeys and hot chestnuts. I could have spent hours (and a small fortune) here.



Some of the items for sale were beautiful, this large wooden horse was one of my favourites



Who remembers Bill and Ben the flowerpot men? I certainly do



I was tempted to buy one of these spiders as a Christmas present - I wish I had now - d'oh!





The town of Chichester is so pretty any time of the year, but Christmas always seems a bit more special


The market even has it's own Mary and Joseph with donkeys - from Hayling Island Donkeys


Bad blogger that I am, we stopped for lunch which I just ate with no photos - but take it from me - it was yummy!

I'm combining day 8 and 9 as day 9 just consisted of lots of queuing at the Post Office and general pottering.

Sephora Advent Calendar update, day 8 was very cute red note cards with 'I wish' written on them. I can see me using these easily and pining them onto the fridge or above my desk

With the notecards from day 7 - these were odd.....


Day 9 was a beautiful red nail varnish called 'Cherry Popsicle' - this might just be my Christmas Day choice


Hope you're enjoying my version of Blogmas. I'll try to update every day or at least every other day, but if work overtakes me - it might be a bit late!

Thanks for reading

Cathy
