Today we awoke to brilliant sunshine so we decided to take a trip to Edinburgh for the day. Due to the fact that we live right up in the North of England we are only 2 hours away from Scotland's capital city. Edinburgh is stunning at any time of year but at Christmas it is just that little bit more special.
Here take a look
THE CHRISTMAS FAIR ON PRINCES STREET
SAUSAGES ON THE GERMAN CHRISTMAS MARKET - PRINCES STREET
A FORTUNE TELLER AT THE CHRISTMAS FAIR. NOT MY SORT OF THING I LIKE SURPRISES

I did go in the famous Harvey Nichols (Patsy's favourite shop) but the pictures didn't turn out - sorry.
