In England for the holidays and we made a pact that we wouldn't be lazy. We would go places we'd never been and explore and have fun. We would not get put off by the weather or the cold or the warm cosy house. We arrived on Saturday, did some essential Christmas shopping on Sunday and then on Monday we decided to start exploring. First stop Spitalfields Market in E1:
So we visited 3 markets in one day.
We bought: A melted beer bottle clock and a pair of baby booties in Spitalfields, a box of Laduree macarons, a bag of pick n mix sweets and 2 red velvet cupcakes in Covent Garden and 2 strings of flower fairy lights at Southbank.
The last 2 days have been dedicated to house hunting, viewings and planning more adventures for the days to come, whilst nursing one small intrepid explorer who has been knocked sideways by a throat infection. The funniest thing is that she has actually lost her voice TOTALLY and cannot even squeak at us! Absolute bliss, the silence but then one look at her sad flushed face and glassy eyes and we wish she would get better ASAP.
Next up...Things I've bought just before Christmas that are not for Christmas...
