Christmas jumpers have swept the high-street shops, actually more like engulfed like a tidal wave over the recent years. Love them or hate them, I’ve never been one to shy away from a cliché, a romantic sunset, a jumping shot in front of the Eiffel tower, a picture stood with a Beefeater outside Buckingham Palace and if it’s a cliché with a Christmas element, I’m there with bells on (ut-hum) Goodness knows something’s are cliché for a reason and I never feel more festive than when I’m goofing around wearing a Christmas jumper complete with snow scene and reindeer.
We took a trip to Todmorden to get a breath of fresh air and stop for some incredible food at the Bear Co-op café. I wore my new gorgeous wool Laura Ashley Christmas jumper with GAP gingham shirt and Zara jeans. We were all kinds of excited getting out of the city into nature, skipping along through the puddles and watching the geese go by along the canal.
Luckily for us there was a number of dog walkers making the most of the crisp winter sunshine, which meant we got the chance to stop and pet some rather lovely little dogs.
After a rather brisk walk along the canal we were suitably hungry so headed to the fabulous Bear Café, which some of you may remember from my previous blog post, if you missed it you can read more about the legendary Bear Café and Incredible Edible project HERE. I warmed up with a hot apple and cinnamon drink, followed shortly by a pretty indulgent Halloumi burger, if you ever get chance to visit the Bear Cafe you really must.
“Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home.”
