This christmas we were planning to go the christmas market in strasbourg between christmas and new year while Jeff is on holiday. But again the authorities decided to close it on the 24 because of the expense of watching the markets, I have heard there are an extra 700 security staff at the moment. Which means we miss it again this year. What is the world coming to. I will not let them intimidate me, I will be choosing another christmas market. If we stay at home they win as that is what they want. We decided to go to a closer market in Metz and spend a couple of nights there so we can fully enjoy it. We will be taking Phoebe with us and to make it easier for her we bought a lovely dog carrier. Last year in brussels we had to keep picking her up as it was crowded and she was getting tired. Here you can see Jeff and my friend testing it to see the fit was good. She seems quite contented. And Jeff will love all the ladies coming up to hime and petting the dog.
