One Response to National Trust Christmas

  1. did you go to the Chatsworth christmas fayre? We queued for 1 1/2 hours to get in and the fayre was soooo busy. they had 40 coaches alone booked in that day. I had to run into the gardens to seek some solitude. what do you think of their fayre? I thought it was mostly bought in commercial stuff and makes me sad as someone who has been to many craft fairs as a proper home made crafts person 😦
