I always tend to leave my Christmas shopping until the last moment so I was determined this year to be more organised. Great Ayton's Holly Fair on Saturday 26th November seemed to be the perfect opportunity to get inspired. I had already got into the festive spirit by visiting Carlton's Christmas Coffee Morning so when I arrived at Great Ayton things were starting to wind down. There will still plenty of stalls to look at and there was live music provided by the Leven Siders.

Alongside the tea and coffee on offer there was also soup, which looked very tempting. There was so much on offer: fairly traded goods, knitted toys, cakes, sweets, candles, bags and more. I went around a couple of times before I finally made my purchase: some heart-shaped Christmas tree decorations. So not all my Christmas shopping done but I have made a start.

I also got to thinking when I heard that over all £614 was raised to go to 'Tickle the Tastebuds'. I hadn't realised that this is a charity based in Middlesbrough and was set up fifteen years ago to provide a place to go for people who are homeless. Their aim is to show love and respect to everybody no matter what their situation in life with a two course meal and a chance to play games (. Maybe what matters is not what I give to my friends at Christmas but how I give them.
