We were all sad to be leaving Nuremberg yesterday. After breakfast in the hotel we spent 2-3 hours wandering around this beautiful old town. The architecture is so lovely.
This cute Christmas wooden statue is more my thing at Christmas time 🙂We checked in so quickly at the airport we had loads of time to hang around with not much to do. This tea display was amazing. So much choice of different teas and when I asked for a peppermint tea, I was asked if I wanted a tea bag or fresh leaves! There was an excellent choice of accompaniments too, such as different types of honey and lemon. I wish some of our high street chains were this good.
Thanks to my careful budgeting, we were left with Euros 9.19. I walked round the airport and noticed there was no confectionary for sale. None at all. People who wonder why childhood obesity is such a problem in this country should perhaps look at countries where levels are lower and so too is the availability of confectionary. Maybe there is a bit of a connection. I bought a small stollen which they cut up for us and we enjoyed with tea and coffee.
One of many errands today was a visit to the Rolvenden Farmers market. I haven’t been for months as I am always in London on Thursdays so I really enjoyed a chance to go back. It doesn’t quite have the air of jollity and Christmas spirit that Nuremberg had though 😦
Ham salad with sweet potato for lunch. I made the salad from iceberg lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber and raw shredded brussel sprouts. I also had a little piece of Christmas cake with a cuppa. What a treat.For supper we went out to the Black Pig, Hawkhurst with Lucy, Emily and Charlie. I had the belly of pork which was served on smashed potatoes with courgettes, carrots and cabbage.
Instead of dessert in the pub we headed up the road to Lucy’s for mince pies and unfortunately, tea for this driver. I should have asked Lara to drive :-). It was a lovely evening and that plus the Christmas Market has made me feel all Christmassy.
