December! It's actually starting to feel a little like Christmas. We'd better start thinking about shopping . . . hard to believe we will be back in the States in less than 3 weeks. The kids are starting to get excited.
We had a very busy weekend on the back of a busy week at work. No rest for the weary this time. On Saturday, we got to feel like productive members of society again by helping our friends the Seppanens. After 6 weeks here they finally got there shipment of furniture from IKEA. Having put together quite a few pieces myself I thought they could use a hand. We didn't finish it all, but we made great progress. I'm sure their place will feel more like home now. Capped off the night the pizza delivered from Pizza Hut (a first for us here). Really hit the spot.
I guess it was an all Seppanen weekend as our 2 families took a day trip to Lincoln, about 75-80 minutes to the northeast from Derby. Lincoln has a huge Christmas Market every year and we thought we would try it out -- glad we did. Lincoln also has an impressive cathedral and castle too. You can eventually get Jay's take on the weekend at his blog if you want another view.
Lots of stained glass. Here's a sample.

We had a nice day at the Christmas Market and we were glad to be able to share the day with the Seppanens.
Have a good week and thanks for reading.
