My daughter and I are going to see the Christmas lights being switched on in the town.
There will be lots of activities for children throughout the day, including a visit to see Santa.
What I do find particularly silly...and I can't stop laughing about it...is that they didn't manage to find a "celebrity" to switch on the lights. So they have the winner of a local talent competition to do the honours. He is an Elvis impersonator...groan...and will be performing for an hour before he switches on the lights. We thought we might just pop into McDonalds for a happy meal when this happens!!
This will be followed by a firework display from the roof of the town hall. So should be a pleasant Saturday.
The snow that's sweeping the country hasn't yet reached us, but it's on it's way...and I'm not looking forward to it at all. The temperature here is -1 C and have just checked home and it's 22 C!
