postheadericon Christmas Markets Here We Are

This is the busiest week of the season so far.  On Wednesday Ben drove to Winchester at 6.30am to set up our chalet there.  Several hours later he realised he had left some vital structures behind, so drove back to Fairyglass Towers in Wiltshire, then back to Winchester to complete the set up.  Our chalet is next to the mulled wine stall in the buttresses of Winchester Cathedral.  Lucy will be there during the week and Ben and Ella will be there at the weekend.  There is also an ice rink to keep those family members who don’t enjoy shopping happy.  Please come and say hello, it is a lovely market with plenty of room to move around and browse all the stalls. Click here for more information.

Today Ben is setting up another chalet at Westonbirt Arboretum for the Enchanted Lights evenings.  There are 3 or 4 chalets, depending on which weekend you go, and ours will be twinkling and sparkling with fairies.  Tonight Father Christmas is arriving with real reindeer.  I will be the one jumping about with excitement and wrapped up in lots of clothes!

Other news from Fairyglass Towers:  our open day was a great success, lots of lovely folk came, many got excellent bargains and all got perfect presents and had a good time.  There will be some pictures in the next newsletter. The penguins are proving very popular and I suggest you buy them soon as we are definitely going to sell out before Christmas.

Christmas at Santa's House by Hotel Chocolat

Whoopee, I have been given some Hotel Chocolat chocolate to enjoy!  So today the fairies are all VERY happy as they are “helping” me taste these little chocolate treats- Christmas At Santa’s House.  We have 5 Santas, 5 penguins and 5 reindeer in Santa’s house and, boy, are they yummy!   They are all individually wrapped which means if you were inclined to put them in Advent calendars, stockings, parcels or even lunchboxes, they will stay pristine and safe.  I don’t think ours will last long enough for any of those possibilities, as it’s unusually tasty chocolate, but we can always dream.  We are already on our 2nd ones, but they are a lovely size for children as they are not too big and so tasty you don’t need lots at once.  I would definitely buy these as a gift for a family, or to share as a family treat.  What a pity we have eaten so many of them all ready
