We are now well and truly back to full health, thank goodness for that! Let’s hope we stay healthy and full of beans for the rest of the year! To celebrate being back up and running we had a pretty busy weekend full of fun stuff, let’s take a look at this week’s top five
Aren’t these little guys cute? We picked this up at the annual Scandinavian Christmas Market in London. Located on Albion Street in Rotherhide and conveniently between the Norwegian Church and the Finnish Church. The market is a celebration of all things nordic and festive and is a great day out. The market isn’t huge but it is perfectly formed. There were stalls to buy lots of gifts from, as well as many serving scandi food and drink (we enjoyed the glögg). Inside the two Churches, there are further stalls and places to eat. It is a great little day out!
On Saturday we headed to Twickenham to watch England play Fiji as part of the Old Mutual Wealth Series. We love heading to Twickenham to have a few beers and watch the rugby. It was a good game with England winning 58 – 15. After the match, we headed to Hampton Wick where we used to live, to have another couple of pints and a curry. A good day out!
One advantage of having a florist in the family is that we are often given leftover flowers. On Saturday Rich’s mum did a large event with lots of table displays. When we got home we found she had made us a small arrangement using the left over roses. It made us very happy!
As if we weren’t feeling Christmassy enough having for to the Scandinavian Christmas market on Friday, we headed to the Winchester Cathedral Christmas Market on Sunday too! The market is now in its 10th year and is going from strength to strength. There are 100 stalls, plenty of food and drink options and an even an ice rink! If you visit on Sunday 11th or 18th December there is a family carol concert in the cathedral too
We love beer, we love our dogs. What better way than to enjoy a beer with our dog? We discovered this doggie friendly beer in Pets At Home at the weekend and we thought it was a great idea so we picked some up as a present for Hettie so next time we have a beer she can have one too!
