Today I had my first visit to the Altrincham Vintage and Craft Market – I wasn’t expecting too much but was bowled over by how good it was.  I came away with a couple of pretty handmade things, a tiny old calendar and an earthenware footwarmer (to be reincarnated as a door stop).

I also met the lovely girls from The Silver Apples and bought a slice of cinder toffee brownie and a gingerbread.  We are sitting enjoying a log fire burning away and munching on the cinder toffe brownie – yum yum.
