Manchester Christmas Markets!

I can't believe its been two weeks since I went to the Christmas markets! I've handed in my uni assignments, worked nearly every day & moved house in the last week! My friend Kay is back home for a few weeks as she is living on the other side of the world in Australia! We decided to have a night in Manchester at the markets and they stay over at her sister's house! It was bloody freezing! I didn't buy any presents at the market but the food was truly delicious! We shared a Belgian coated fruit kebab, toffee waffles, German bratwurst sausage and winter punch! Then in the morning we stopped off at Pop Cafe & had a scrummy breakfast! I hope you like the photos, they were taken using the 'toy camera' setting on my new camera which  is kinda 'Instagrammy' and vintage-looking :)

I have hardly got any of my Christmas shopping done and I literally have one day off before Christmas and I don't get paid til the 23rd :( I'm seriously thinking of doing some IOU's and getting some better presents in the sale for my family. I hate that the sales start as soon as its too late for Christmas delivery! I'm not really in a festive mood yet either which doesn't help. I am looking forward to my three days off (!) and spending it with my family :) 

Are you prepared for Christmas?Have you visited Manchester Christmas markets this year?
Thanks for reading :)
