That is going to be our first Christmas with baby. I am getting slowly in the mood. Did not do yet list what I am going to cook, but still have plenty of time. And also this year we are both on holidays, so no rushing between kitchen and busy workplaces. Presents are such an important thing in Ireland. Everybody gets crazy, shops are so busy I try to avoid city centre in December and do my shopping as a very planned or just online. But we also have our small tradition and every year we go for Dublin Flea Christmas Market. It is much bigger then usual flea market which takes place on every last Sunday on Newmarket Street in D8. I am a huge fan of bric-a-brac and supporter of small local companies especially involved in fair-trade and organic movement as well as just beautiful well-designed trinkets. But this year was special as we went there to find something for Z. She is too small for box of chocolates, so I wanted a gift which will be a toy for future but also a memory of her first Christmas. Will you guess what I have chosen? Have a look on all those loveliness for babies, toddlers and children what I found there. And if you did not have plans for tomorrow here is an idea to check crowded Point Village!
