Campbell's Christmas. 349/366

Up a bit earlier today and off to Glenrothes. The Kingdom Centre was not that busy but Smith's was full. However I got Christmas cards and good sturdy envelopes for my calendars.
Then I went to M&S food hall which was worse. Lots of queueing but once in it was fine. I only wanted poinsettias which were just inside the door. Very pleased to get them. Gave them a good soak when I got them home and they are now in the window.
Went to Falkland Post Office and stocked up on stamps. Posted some more cards and came back to see Andy cleaning his car, A bit of chat and he'll clean mine at the weekend, weather permitting. But only if I have stollen. Usually I've been eating stollen since November but not a slice has passed my lips this year. It's not that I haven't been remembering Christmas but I don't seem to have been doing much about it.
There has been progress today though. I've managed at last to e-mail Pam. Only three cards are left to have notes added and be posted. All my neighbours cards are ready to be delivered. I'll have to get a move on with the calendars though.
Managed to photograph Campbell's windows. They look lovely and they are such a good cafe.
I finished my cards and packed up the calendars before going to bed. Feeling well pleased with myself.

sounds like memories of better times now. Perhaps it was just a dream.

You remind me that Pam should be in recovery mode post-op today. Keeping all extremities well and truly crossed!
I like this shot and am amused at the puctuation of the shop name. Not so much the apostrophe, which is correctly used (more about that in a mo), but the capital S. I can see it is merely to balance the initial C but it still doesn't look quite right and it would begin to niggle after a while! Here in Madrid, there are many commercial establishments that think it is the height of sophistication to use English in their names but then they ruin the effect with badly misused apostrophes. Examples you see are as follows; BED'S (a popular chain - this is the one that irks me the most), FISH'S (a market-holder's stall), and BOOK'S. These are the ones that stand out like a sore thumb but there are many others!

Beautifully composed and taken, Jean. Following on Andy's comment, going by what I see here increasingly, I suspect that schooling no longer covers the use of apostrophe's. :-)

I love their Christmas window display Jean. It would entice me inside...not that I need much enticing! A gorgeous warm glow from inside too.

Jean replied to Rosalyn Hilborne:

I think it was closed again as we were moved into tier 4 about then and of course, now everything non-essential is shut down.

Such a beautiful shop front.........and nicely captured. I hope the coffee and food are as nice as the window display!

You seem to have been pretty organised in the run up to Christmas Jean............we tend to leave everything to the last minute and end up panicking and rushing about........even though we promise ourselves to be more organised each year :-))

Whatever you're doing this weekend, have a good one and be safe!
