The first wave of Christmas excitement has descended upon my family and I because the Frankfurt Market has once again arrived in Birmingham!! Were it not for the arrival of a little 'magic' from our european neighbours, I would definitely be sat on the 'Grinchy' side of the fence when it comes to the festive season! However, they are here and so we happily spent our time munching and swaying and being of good cheer and we haven't even got the mulled wine yet! I'm saving that for when the weather remembers that it's november, for when we can see our breath in the air and our fingers feel numb but we go on the carousel 'just one more time' anyway!!!!
