Christmas in Wales

Bridgend, United Kingdom

Christmas this year was spent in the most unusual fashion.... cold.

Christmas Eve was spent in Cardiff watching iceskaters at the small fair that is set up called the Winter Wonderland. We even tried our luck at a game of ring toss and it seems luck was Craig's side (when the operator wasn't looking) and won a small bear. We threw some grinches and had a hot chocolate. After it got dark at about 4-30pm it was time to head back to Bridgend.

We woke up on Christmas day with our fingers crossed that it was going to be a white one. We had no such luck. There has been no new snowfall to make snow men out of. Instead we called all our loved ones back home in Australia which we guess comes a close second.

After lunch it was time for presents! We got unexpectedly spoilt but the highlight would have to have been watching Corrine's cousins toddler playing with all his new toys.

The next day we got to see some of the Welsh coastline, and lots of sheep, we hadn't seen any up until then. Neither of us had worn so many clothes to go to the beach but it was a good excuse to wear our new gloves, scarves and beanies that we had been given for Christmas.

Now it is time to go to Merry ol' England

Blog you later.
