I go to Bath Christmas market every single year and I look forward to it with clammy hands. Bath is one of my favourite cities anyway and with the addition of mulled wine, delightful company and cheese tasters it makes it a thousand times better. So with the weather fresh and crisp we set our sights on the mulled wine and caramel nuts. Now, I was a tiny bit disappointed with the disappearance of the pie hut that I bought far too many items from last year but there were some amazing stalls again all the same. If anything, you can fill up on the cheese which makes up for not eating breakfast. I don’t think there’s ever a bad time for jalapeño cheese!
After a trawl of coats in Marks & Spencer and with my bank card in tatters we headed for lunch. Now, I won’t go into too much detail but it wasn’t the best experience I’ve ever encountered and I most definitely won’t be visiting Nonna’s again. For me, if you book a table you don’t expect to be kept waiting for half an hour before being seated; it instantly puts me in a bad mood. So, to cut a long story short, the start of our meal was a bit of a nightmare but luckily the food made up for it ever so slightly. As I’ve already mentioned, I’m having a bit of a love affair with pizza at the moment so it was an obvious choice for me. Spicy sausage pizza and red wine felt like a dream after that long wait and a whole lot of walking.
Sarah and I had entertainment throughout lunch, in the form of my mother, who was a tiny bit tipsy and thought everything in life was the funniest thing she had ever seen. It’s safe to say, I know where I get my inability to consume alcohol from.
I now have specifically three Christmas presents left to purchase and I’ve started my mulled wine spree. The most wonderful time of year is well and truly in full swing and I couldn’t be happier.
