Christmas time in Sheffield

2 weekends to go, and this weekend I've been up north to see how Sheffield does Christmas.

I couldn't help myself with this shot - Greys anatomy anyone?

I'll be honest, I don't have many local friends any more. Illness, university moves and travelling has left me with friends here, there and everywhere. However, it's not something I resent. In fact, someone said I live a cosmopolitan lifestyle, the other day, and I'll take that!

So, yesterday I went to visit a friend who I spent three months of my time with when I was in Sri Lanka. She lives near Sheffield, and as I've never been to Sheffield, I thought it was about time I did.

In terms of what we did, well we didn't do much. I've done all of my Christmas shopping now and didn't fancy carrying anything else so although we went around all of the city shops, I didn't buy anything. We did, however, eat sushi, marvel at all of the Christmas decorations, drink tea and talk all day long. Pure bliss.

I still haven't been to Meadowhall but neither one of us wanted to brave that at this time of year, so it gives me another reason to go back! Sheffield overall though, is like no other city I've ever been to. It felt more like a village - a really large village - so worth stopping by if you haven't before.
