The Beaten Track - December 18

It is one of my favourite times of year when I get to visit some of the Christmas markets just a short drive away from my home. I finished my Xmas shopping yesterday and I can finally say that I am just getting into the festive mood. Family comes first at this time of year and so I will down my pen until the new year (or try to!). This is easier said than done.
Gordon Riggs Xmas Market 2018



The first market I went to was at a local garden centre just at the Yorkshire/Lancashire border. It was only a small affair. I loved the vintage truck on display.








Brighouse Market
The second Xmas market was at Brighouse, one of my favourite places. The street markets are always good here. I was surprised to discover this chap there. The sound effects and dinosaur body movements were impressive.


Halifax Piece Hall Xmas Marktet
The third market was at Halifax, the town where I found my inspiration for writing my third book, Crushing Curiosity. I must admit I was very disappointed with the Xmas market. There were only 30 stalls and mostly offering hot food and drinks at high prices. The newly renovated Piece Hall could have been home to a much better market.



View from my Littleborough kitchen window
I always enjoy coming home after a day of browsing the markets. This photo was taken from my kitchen window while I enjoyed a mug of hot tea. I just love the sky at this time of year and, living so high up, I can look down at all the twinkling lights. As the houses in the distance decorate for Xmas this view will change to include neon blues and twinkling cyan.
Woody
The biggest surprise this year was a new addition to my family. Meet Woody. He is almost six months old and a bundle of love and mischief. I can't wait for our Christmas morning walk.
