Feeling Festive

I’ve always loved Christmas.

The last few years have been devoted to giving my small son the most magical Christmas memories. Not showering with gifts but filling every magical moment spare with memories that will last us (if not him) a lifetime. From visiting friends and family, attending the town centre light switch-ons, spotting sparkly ice sculptures on a trail, a visit to a volunteer-run railway and being amazed at an awe-inspiring castle. This year has been packed, already! Phew. 

I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year. – Charles Dickens

But this year….

This year, we also included a special day out for me. 

We included a trip to one of my most favourite places in the world. 

Barter Books!

With a book for every genre, and an impressive converted train station to walk around, I reckon this place could convert anyone into becoming a book lover.

After such a magical time, I don’t think I’ve ever felt more festive.

Or more thankful to have gotten to spend this time with my wonderful little family.

The most joyful sight of the day, watching these two cuties sitting in the Book Lorry reading together.

Hope you are all having a wonderful December!
