Life Lately Christmas lights

I'm getting fully swept up in the magic of Christmas (yes in November and no I'm not ashamed). I feel like Christmas starts in October for Instagram so celebrating it late November is practically restrained!

We are still pinching ourselves that we live somewhere with so much on our doorstep. It sounds a bit odd I guess as we obviously live in the same city still but comparing where we live now with before is pretty different. One of the things I'm loving is being able to walk to places after school with Wilf, going to museums or classes or meet ups with friends. We were always that little bit too far out before to be able to get anywhere much in the time after school and it's making such a positive difference to our lives.

A few nights ago we went to watch the Christmas lights be switched on. Wilf recognised a few buddies from his school and the local shops were handing our mince pies and fizz.

Tom and I took Mabli to the Christmas markets in town (we've yet to take Wilf but planning on next week). They certainly aren't fancy but I sort of love them even more for being a bit tacky, especially the stall with the singing moose and mulled wine!

(My dress was from Ted Baker and Lauren's was from here if you are after a party dress!)

Me and my friend Lauren (that sometimes takes my pictures) went to the premier of The Crimes of Grindelwald which was such a treat! Me and Wilf are on the last few chapters of the Deathly Hallows in the Harry Potter series but I think the Fantastic Beasts trilogy is still a bit old for him. We're hoping we might be able to squeeze a trip to Hogwarts before the year is out though!

Other than that we've just been enjoying settling into our new home and new area. Making some new friends, working on some exciting projects and generally just bumbling along in life. Does anyone else get asked what they have done that day/week and struggle to think if they've done anything whilst still feeling like they have been super busy? Sometimes I have a whole morning where I'm not sat down but can't really place what I've even done. Is that just parenthood?


Told you we were fully in the Christmas spirt ;)
