Last week, we visited the local weekend Christmas market at the Old Great Square. The hint of snow cast a delightful sparkle on the event and everything felt quite cheerful and festive. Now that the artisan and farmers’ stalls are there again all is back to the grey and dark scale. But as long as it stays below freezing point I don’t mind. The little frost we had helped me to find the right vibes for the season.
We bought ourselves a present: two sheepskins to cover the seats of the leather sofa in the living room. That was just my kind of a present as Christmas shopping couldn’t get more local and ecological than that!
Talking about sofas and festivities, I do hope all my friends in the UK will sit back by the TV at 8pm and give their votes to the Finnish girl with the most beautiful first name in the world, not because I ask you to but because she is such a phenomenal singer and entertainer. As to her name, I’m a bit biased. My dear daughter, who by the way has a great voice too, is also named Saara.
