~York Shopping & Cath Kidston treat~

Gosh it's cold this weekend. No snow here yet though; just a keen frost. Small Dog has needed his cosy jumper, even in the house...
I've treated myself to some new fleece welly liners from Seasalt - my favourite shop when I'm in Cornwall.

They were half price in the pre-Christmas sale - £7.50, free P&P and I got a free jute bag too. Free P&P is on until midday tomorrow (Monday 19th December) which is last chance to order for Christmas. My Festival Hunters are now 4 years old and have scrubbed up well for another year.  They've withstood allotment digging and are so comfy, even on long walks.
Yesterday we ventured into a twinkly and Christmassy York at 4pm - daughter L was at work and son J was at a party/sleepover - so it was just us two which is rare! We had some hot fruit punch from a street stall and wandered round the pretty streets ...

Minster Yard/Low Petergate,  York
...managing a decent stop-off in Cath Kidston in Stonegate, where OH treated me to this beauty...

Cath Kidston Carryall Bag - Stone Country Rose
It's a shopper, but big enough to use as an overnight bag. I love their pretty Christmas paper bags too.
Off now to do a bit of wrapping!


  1. York is such a lovely city. It must have been really nice to have a wander around and little sip of something warming! Love your bag and off to have a look at what Seasalt have to offer - thanks for that info!

  2. Oh York is so nice at this time of year,any time really.Love your bag and the paper bag.Have a lovely chritmas Love Jill xx

  3. Sally, your little dog is a real cutie. Good job hes got a little jumper because I can well imagine he feels the cold. You are lucky living so near to York, how fab to be able to pop in early evening and stroll around the lovely streets with your fruit punch.
    p.s your Cath bag is gorgeous too.X

  4. Your little doggie looks a real character! York is looking good with a warm festive glow, I haven't been since the christmas lights went on so hoping to manage a Christmas eve whizz round. Actually that would be an early morning visit so I wouldn't see the lights! Pretty bags.

  5. I love seasalt too! How cute does your doggie look in that jumper.
