Some festive weekend scenes...

I hope everyone had a lovely weekend. It is hard to believe there is only two weeks left to Christmas. I got a bit  of shopping done yesterday when I hit  Dublin with the girls:). It was a cold damp day but a stroll around the Christmas market,  blasting out Christmas tunes soon put us in holiday mode. Here are a few pics we took along the way...

The  Ouayside Market...

Fun on the carousel...

Lovely roasted Chestnuts...

Warming hot toddys!

Some festive decorations...

I hope everyone is getting into the Christmas spirit!  I have loads more shopping to do yet so I better crack on with it!  Have a fantastic week!
