Christmas is coming……Mandarins in Mercadona

Second sign that autumn is on its way – during the weekly shop in Mercadona in Sabinillas last week, I noticed that they had mandarins for sale. Still a bit on the expensive side but for sale non the less.
Won’t be long before the chocolate Father Christmases appear!! Actually, I’m joking – one great thing about living in Spain is that the shops don’t “do” Christmas until at least mid November or December in some cases. Unlike England, where, according to my mum, the shops are awash with Christmas merchandise!!!! As far as I’m concerned, it’s still summer here!!!
