It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas... I'm so excited for Christmas and would consider it my favourite time of the year, despite being a summer baby. I love the decorations and lights, shopping and presents, food, music, cosy days and evenings, and spending time with loved ones. It's such a magical time! Now that it's December I can be as excited as I want and do as many festive activities as possible to get into the Christmas spirit and enjoy the build up. I hope you all enjoyed your advent calendars, we put decorated our house yesterday with it being the first weekend of December. We went on a family trip to London at the weekend to wander around the shops and see the decorations and lights. Our first stop was Westfield shopping centre which had it's own ice rink, none of us were brave enough to give it a go... Next stop was Selfridges, Oxford Street and that's when we hit the crowds.
The Christmas displays are amazing!
It was already manic inside but we slowly made it to the Christmas Emporium which was even busier before moving to the food hall, I love this cute little macaroon tree.
We thought Oxford Street was busy until we got the tube to Covent Garden. It's clearly the place to be as the tube station was so busy that we ended up taking the stairs (the 'quick' exit) to get out, 193 steps later we regretted this decision. Covent Garden was worth the workout though with it's giant baubles, tree and reindeer.
A lovely day, but we were so glad to be resting our feet on the train home!
