Sunday 16 December

Woke up feeling grotty knowing a cold was imminent. Better this side of Xmas, last year my only cold started on Boxing Day! B&B and one cottage out today. Decided to drop into Bakewell and get a paper and look at the Sunday market. It was still cold and misty. We bought a rug for one of the cottages and a few other bits and pieces. We went and had a look at the new Antiques Center that was a part of the Rutland Hotel. The coffee shop was empty so we stopped for a coffee. In the afternoon I put up our Xmas tree. An early tea then we went with Joanna and Andrew down to Over Haddon to see the film ‘March of the Penguins’.
