Our Weekend in Pictures - Embracing winter



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?

These photos have been taken with a Hama Polarising Filter. It's the first filter I've tried and I'm really into the results. Proper blog post to follow!

I've just dressed my baby son in a very festive red babygro covered with little white stars and the girls are making a soup for Father Christmas out of conkers and jingle bells - I think we're a lost cause - Christmas all the way!!

There's definitely something about having a little one that makes Christmas all the more exciting! I'm desperate to put the decorations up, but I know with a 14 month old the reality will be far different from what I'm picturing in my head.

Oh my goodness, that little hood is adorable! I'm pretty sure my son would just pull it off though ha

I was at the Bristol Christmas Market on Sunday! I loved that moose, the queue for the hot chocolate was crazy when we were there though so I did a bit more browsing than sitting. Looks like you had a nice weekend, even if it was a bit full of cold. x

Yet to do a mince pie or the christmas markets (ours aren't open yet) but it's only a matter of time! :) xx

Gorgeous photos as usual Fritha- the little Christmas market looks lovely. I am feeling quite festive too this year! I do love Christmas though but not normally until December! x

Polly Davies said...

love that print, and the tray!

Alice J-T said...

Ahh I guess we all have our talents - love that Fritha! I'm usually the same - no xmas til Dec - but I can't help but get Christmassy this year! x

So cute! Love the part that you say that each one has its talents :) so sweet description of parenthood. My favorite part of the christmas decorations as a kiddo was the animatronics at my cousins' town, I can remember how big & amazing I thought they were (quite far from the truth ;P)

I can't beleive winter has actually hit- it felt like you guys had the longest summer! We are getting super hot out here now, I already miss snuggling in my big comfty coat :)

laura redburn said...

definitely starting to feel a bit wintery now!

Sarah @ DaydreamsofSummertime said...

I am still in shock that we are over halfway through November - how dis that happen? Lovelyy photos as always.

Jess@AlongCameCherry said...

Haha my talents definitely don't include going to the park either!! I took the kids for the first time in about a year the other week and it was awful so after 5 mins I bribed her with something so we could leave! The Xmas market looks great, I'm feeling very festive this year xx

Laura Rocksteady said...

Oh how cute is Wilfs snood!!! Colds are horrible and they always hit this time of the year but it's nice to see you all got outside - I think it's really important for the immune system to have some wintery walks. I also use to be No Christmas until december but I have to admit I have already ate my first mince pie and well from there onwards it's pretty much festive :)

My birthday is in the middle of November and I used to fussy about no christmas until then, but hey, I have a 2 year old and I'm totally embracing it. Plus I really love christmassy stuff! It's also a very easy way to entertain said 2 year old on a rainy afternoon, nip on a train to Edinburgh and wander round a few christmas departments in shops and he's happy, I've kept warm and dry too! I also spend a lot of time shivering at the park though...
