5 fab things this week #24


Another week rolling by, the count down to Christmas is really on!

We’ve had a couple of shopping trips and quite a few cosy afternoons in this week.

5 fab things #24

Winchester Christmas Market

We had a trip down to Winchester Christmas market on Wednesday. Unfortunately the weather was pretty dreary but it certainly got me in the Christmas spirit seeing all the lovely Christmas stalls and ice-skating rink. There was also a stall in the main high street that sold the biggest doughnuts I’ve ever seen, I just had to get some!

Getting cosy at home

We’ve had the fire on a few nights this week as the temperature seems to have dropped. It makes it so warm and cosy I could nearly nod off!

Shopping afternoon

We had a lovely afternoon in Guildford shopping. I didn’t get to tick any more Christmas presents off my list but I did get an outfit for a christening I’m going to from my new favourite shop Zara. Charley had a good roll around the floor whilst in there. The floor is particularly shiny!

Bodhi even had a sleep in the pushchair so we had a peaceful stop for a cuppa.

Belly laughs

Charley loves playing with her cup of water at tea time, either cooling her food down in it or washing her hands in it, why wouldn’t you?! This week she found that dropping a pen lid in it and causing the water to jump out hilarious, as did Bodhi watching. She was having real belly laughs.

Having missed a few weeks swimming due to illness and then because we were all too cosy in bed to get up (first lesson is at 8am on a Saturday!!!!!) it was actually really good to get back in the pool and it was so so so warm in there. The children are really enjoying their lessons, it’s just a little bit too early on a weekend morning!! Yawn!

Hope you’ve had a good week!

  2. Seems like you definitely had a fab week. I love going to Christmas market because you can really feel the spirit of Christmas looking at what’s on sale, planning to go one this month. Lovely fireplace and gorgeous photos too! #AnythingGoes

  3. Looks like a lovely week. It’s all starting to get Christmassey now! I love it! And evenings curled up by the fire are so lovely at this time of year. We went to the Christmas Market in Bath this weekend and I bought a few goodies. I love that it’s December and we can finally embrace Christmas without feeling like we might peak too soon! #TwinklyTuesday

  4. Nothing like belly laughs! And love your wood burning stove. We’ve made very good friends with ours as we’ve been without central heating for weeks! #TwinklyTuesday

  5. That sounds like a really lovely week. A Christmas market is always good for getting in the festive spirit isn’t it. I also love a bit of Zara – I must test out the shiny floor next time I am in there. Hopefully not after a mulled wine though!! Nicky #twinklytuesday

  7. Great list! I love a good Christmas market, even if I don’t want to buy anything, I can’t resist wandering around and more often than not I do end up buying things 🙂
