Our weekend in pictures, a little diary of what we get up to at the weekends together. Just a bunch of normal family life pictures!
Saturday 2nd December
The day started with the school Christmas fair, with lots of tasty things to eat and buy!
We spent the rest of the afternoon cleaning and getting the lounge ready for the Christmas tree. It was a little stressful this year…don’t be fooled by the pictures!!! Family life is never straight forward
Sunday 3rd December
We had a surprise for the kids today….woke them up at 6:30am on a SUNDAY….!! We were off to London for the day, we had been invited up by Uniqlo and Cozmo the robot. Hannah Argyle has designed such a cute set of T-Shirts with a little Cozmo robot on them, so they wanted us to pop up to see the new T-Shirts and for the kids to have a play with Cozmo.
The kids were so excited by their surprise as they have only been to London once before!
I thought we would pop by Buckingham Palace, only to spot them just coming out and changing the guard!! Not what we expected but nice to see it briefly. However a shame that we then couldn’t get up close to the gates to show the kids a better view.
Then it was time to head over to Uniqlo in Oxford Street to meet Cozmo. Cozmo didn’t disappoint! My kids are 8-13yrs and they all loved him, and Tyler is a proper computer geek and he loved the challenges and games that Cozmo set him!
There was the best ever face painter there too, Lily asked for a unicorn………how amazing is this unicorn?! Everyone around London kept looking at her face paint and commenting on it.
Ever since Liberty’s did their TV program I wanted to visit, me and hubby visited London on our own last year and picked a bauble. So I had to do the same this year didn’t I! They have such a lovely Christmas shop filling the whole of the top floor, you must make a visit there!
I knew there was some amazing Christmas lights in London but I haven’t seen them since I was about 10 years old! So perfect chance to show the kids too, we visited Oxford Street but it was too early to see them properly lit up.
Regents Street with the flying Angels
but the best of all was Carnaby Street….the kids came around the corner and just gasped!
If you don’t already follow me on Instagram I also post a daily picture, and at the end of the year I put them together into a Photobook.
