Following on from the previous post, I decided to take a blogging break ...
from what I normally do for one post ... had you worried there for a moment :-)
This post isn't about travelling (as these were taken exactly two years ago to the week) or photography either but rather I thought I'd ask followers what they think of Christmas decorations. It's not something that I wanted to do but then again neither is looking at old images of Burnham on Sea in North Somerset and Bristol City centre as it has memories that belong to the past but with all the digital images I have it finally puts the lid on the subject.
The residents of Trinity Close, Burnham on Sea have been decorating their houses for years and collecting money for worthwhile charities. The evening that I was taken there, it was difficult to get parked and drive in and out of the street as it became a local attraction and ... traffic hazard !
It was noticeable that only one resident in the street refused to decorate their house which reminds me of a story a bit more local to me in Seaton Sluice where the expense and work of it all forced them to abandon their "light" project. In my opinion, there's a fine line here in good taste that might be too easy to cross.

The welcoming warmth of St Nikki's market (as I used to call it ) on a cold friday December morning.
|Homely and warm welcome or .... "I'll relieve you of some of your money! "|
|Get your presents gift wrapped here !|
|Making do with scraps of food from Pret A Manger|
|Discerning the bogus gifts from the real ones .... or Christmas markets for that matter|
|Making sure the precarious baubles don't fall on your head ...|
|... or snowmen for that matter|
Lastly as I wait for your thoughts, this is the seventh post I've covered on .... err .... Health and Safety Bristol so it's time to leave it behind once and for all ....
|Now where can I dump this ?!!|
