Nottingham Christmas Market: Creative Monday

Nottingham Christmas Market:

A fun afternoon in Nottingham Saturday with my Daughter and Husband (Well a planned trip to Brimingham was on the cards but plans change 😥). We were heading to Birmingham to meet our Son half way but it was really busy on his train due to a few cancelled train and decided to go back home.

I am feeling a little better from the flu on Saturday so we had a walk around Nottingham. I’ve had a few days off work last week and done nothing!! Yeah, nothing. I had so much to do too!!

Well I say nothing but I did wait for the builders to do some work then go to sleep to recover from flu. Didn’t even buy anything in Nottingham though, only food! I realised when we were out how much I hate shopping when it is so, so busy.

I went into a pound shop to look for my Daughter and had a strange feeling I needed to shout. GET ME OUT OF HERE… I hate the feeling of being crammed into a shop and you can not get out.

I really need to do some Christmas shopping though. As I’m so behind. Do you hate shopping when it is really busy too? I love Christmas shopping online in the comfort of my own home 😉

We did have a fun time around the Nottingham Christmas market though. I love all things Christmas-y. Nottingham Christmas Market: Creative Monday Link Up: Today I am sharing a few photos from Saturday:

  1. Love your jumpsuit – you look great – and the Christmas marker photos too. Looks like you had a nice day in Nottingham.

  2. Laurie says:

    Have a great week Claire. Thanks for hosting xx

  3. Claire, I love your snakeskin jumpsuit and those awesome patent booties! So sassy! I am with you on crowded marketplaces. I really cannot tolerate it either, I start to feel claustrophobic. I have done all of my shopping online this year. But I am going to have to venture out at some point and buy wrapping paper! Sorry to hear you had the flu. That is just miserable. I hope you are feeling better now!


  4. Maureen says:

    I am so glad to hear that you are felling better and have recovered from the flu, Claire. It looks like Nottinghan is a beautiful place to be during the holidays. I love looking at all the decorations and could just feel the holiday spirit in the air. I am not a fan of big crowds. It makes the experience a lot less stellar and just frustrating. So online shopping it is in my neck of the woods! Wishing you a great week ahead!

    OH yes, I get very claustrophobic when stores are crowded and actually try to avoid shopping in store between Thanksgiving and Christmas unless I can sneak in at odd times (like a weekday morning!).

  6. Claire,
    Thanks so much for hosting each week and for your visits!!

  7. Heather says:

    Love the pictures of the outside of the market. I have a hard time shopping when it is crowded. I did some shopping online and then went to a few shops in town. I just need to finish shopping for my husband right now.

  11. First, love the snakeskin jumpsuit! I need to take out my teddy coat too! This market looks wonderful, I would love to see that! I am the same though, I shop for gifts on-line, I can’t stand long periods and dont like crowds! Have a great week, Claire!

  16. Shauna says:

    This is like my dream place to visit during the holidays! Looks straight out of a Hallmark Christmas movie set 🙂 All of the colors are so merry & bright!



  17. Cheryl Shops says:

    Ha, Claire, I thought I was the only person in the world who couldn’t stand Christmas markets until I read this post! I once got stuck in the one in Union Square in NYC—I couldn’t find my way out and almost had a panic attack. I’ve hated them ever since! 😀

    The older I get, the less I care to be out in the hustle and bustle of the season. But I have to say these decorations made me smile!

    Thanks for taking the time to link up at ‘My Corner of the World’ this week!

    Love your beautiful images of the Christmas market in Nottingham. I didn’t even know about it, but of course now I want to go! Thank you for sharing!

  22. I hate shopping when it’s busy too. The market looks amazing though – I would enjoy wandering around it as long as I wasn’t trying to buy a load of stuff
    P.S. Thanks for linking up to #ChristmasCorner
