Furry Hats, Bratwurst and Mary Tudor

Last weekend was the Christmas Market where my mama lives in Bury St Edmunds so we went to have a nose round. It wasn’t nearly as good as last year’s with most of the stalls being unrelated to Christmas which was quite disappointing. Other than the food stalls it could have been any old market. 

var _gaq = _gaq || []; _gaq.push([‘_setAccount’, ‘UA-36804072-1’]); _gaq.push([‘_trackPageview’]); (function() { var ga = document.createElement(‘script’); ga.type = ‘text/javascript’; ga.async = true; ga.src = (‘https:’ == document.location.protocol ? ‘https://ssl’ : ‘http://www’) + ‘.google-analytics.com/ga.js’; var s = document.getElementsByTagName(‘script’)[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(ga, s); })();

Fortunately though any day with my mama is a good day, especially when we get to do stuff on our own with husbands whinging about architecture! We had a look in the St Edmundsbury Cathedral and St Mary’s Church which is where Mary Tudor (Henry VIII’s sister) is buried. Bury St Edmunds is an incredibly beautiful town and I’m so happy my mum and stepdad moved there because it means I get to explore and revel in it’s beauty on a regular basis. 
This is the ceiling in the Suffolk Regiment Chapel. It’s all the places they’ve fought.
No Christmas Market would be complete without a Baileys hot chocolate and a bratwurst. And an amusing photo of my mama eating it. (Please don’t kill me, mum, the world needed to see this…)
I tried this hat on for the lols but mum said it looked rather glamorous and I’m inclined to agree! ALL THE FURS. 
Ooh, I haven’t done a lifestyle post in a long time, I enjoyed that! I like sharing little bits of my life with you lovely lot. I’ll do a post on what I wore on Monday and my weekly Plus Size Partywear post will be up tomorrow as usual so keep your eyes peeled!
