We've had a lovely weekend visiting Lincoln Christmas market.
On Friday morning we woke up to quite a bit of snow and we thought it would take us longer than the estimated 2 hours to get there but when we reached the other side of Birmingham there was no snow to be seen, so we made good time and got to the hotel just after 2pm. We dropped our bags and drove into town and managed to park the car on the retail park a short walk from the centre.
The hotel was further from the city centre than Booking.com had said (!) so on Saturday morning we caught the bus there and got a taxi back in the evening as we thought it would be busier than the day before. We browsed the shops in the day and after a late lunch we made our way up to the Christmas market again. The market is mainly centred around the area of the Cathedral and you make your way up via lovely pretty cobbled streets, very steep streets, in fact one of the streets is called Steep Hill.
I wish I had taken my camera on the Friday as on Saturday there were so many people it was impossible to get any decent photos at all, and also very hard to look at any of the stalls. If you ever think you might like to visit Lincoln's Christmas Market take my advice and go on the Friday, it's much less stressful.
The wonderful Cathedral
This morning we woke to snow in Lincoln too, so we set off for home as soon as we could, again expecting delays. The traffic was quite light so we got home safe and sound by just after lunchtime.
The conditions got worse the closer we go to home
I couldn't resist taking some photos as we were near home, everything looked so pretty!
Turning into our estate
And then our road
Then seeing our garden turned into a lovely white wonderland :-)

One of the first things I did once we had got the bags in was make sure the birds had some food.
My little Robin was soon back once he knew there was something :-)
Along with our other regular visitors
Sorry, I do seems to have posted a lot of photos again!
I have tomorrow off work so I'm going try and make the most of it and have a rest after all that walking.
See you soon
