Christmas Trees in Town

Luu had today off, the end of her exam leave for her mocks (eek, GCSE's next year!). So we took ourselves off into town for some Christmas shopping, and also an outfit for her college interview, on Friday. Luckily, we found the perfect outfit quite quickly, and our shopping list for the day was soon completed.

So, we rewarded ourselves with a couple of hazelnut hot chocolates and a Christmas Pudding Cupcake. We sat in the Starbucks in Selfridges, looking out at the real Christmas Trees for sale on their balcony. Yes, Pedlars in Selfridges are selling real Christmas trees in Birmingham city centre! And they looked gorgeous, but there were still quite a lot left - I suppose people may not really want to drag a tree through town, but I'd like to see them try!

  1. great photo - somehow Christmas at Starbucks has become such a tradition.

    bit embarrassing this but I just rejected your comment on my blog by mistake - instead of pressing the "accept" I pressed "reject" instead! whoops! didn't mean it - honest!!! can't get it back though...
