Being born on the last day of November I'm usually pretty strict on the 'no Christmas until December' kind of rule. However this year I've completely scrapped that and am fully embracing everything about holiday all the way in early November. In fact I had my first glass of mulled wine on the 8th and last week Tom came back with a bottle Baileys! I've yet to eat my first mince pie though.

Wilf and I both have terrible colds. Actually Wilf's had one for over a week and it's not until I got one myself on Friday that I realised just how awful he must have been feeling, which made me feel so incredibly guilty about my lack of patience with him over certain moments during our week.
I spent Saturday indoors, catching up with bits of work and taking a nap whilst Tom and Wilf went on a 'nature walk' collecting leaves for pretty much everyone Wilf could think of. We decided to head into the shopping centre on Sunday to check out the Christmas markets and have a cup of hot chocolate.
Wilf was completely mesmerised by the animatronic moose that sang Christmas songs at one of the pop up bars and was very much a fan of all the garish tinsel! Afterwards we headed to a local play park where Tom and Wilf were very much in their element whilst I stood back observing and wishing I held a cup of coffee in my hand. I mentioned to Wilf later that mummy wasn't so good at parks and he agreed but said I was good at other things like holding his leaves and collecting things. So I guess we all have our talents.
Hope you all had fantastic weekends! Are you for the Christmas spirt in November or do you think it's a little too soon?
