This week loads of Christmas stuff has popped up all over Shanghai – including in our dining room! We have bought a real Christmas tree and we spend all of yesterday evening decorating it – what do you think?
In order to try and see everyone else’s decorations for ideas, in the morning we went to a Christmas market in Pudong. Our expectations were really not high whatsoever, and they were still not exceeded. It was very small, and I was annoyed by the slogan “Have a Kerry Christmas” as it was at a place called the Kerry Centre. The funniest bit was that we wanted to buy something (that can’t be revealed until Christmas day) at one market ‘shed’, that had a lady in it, with the light on, and she said that she was closed!
Today, we have spent nearly the whole day cooking – blondies & brownies for Biscakes and some very posh lemon & thyme drizzle cakes from the recipe book Suzie bought for Mum. Then we did some gardening, moving some ultra-heavy pots (and me) around with our new trolley!
