It's beginning...

Simon and I thought we'd at least pretend to be organised this year and make a head start on our Christmas shopping, so we ventured to Westfields shopping centre in Stratford. I'm probably stating the obvious, but there are SO many shops there! The first shop we went to was Primark which, in hindsight, was probably a bit of a mistake as I only bought things for myself. Oops. After that small blip I did manage to get the hang of the Christmas shopping thing and only bought gifts for my family rather than myself!

On saturday we braved the crowds and went to Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park. It was absolutely rammed, but we persevered, ate a bratwurst and enjoyed watching the ice skating.
I was so so so cold that afterwards we dashed to New Look so I could buy the biggest (and warmest) ear muffs in the world. I'm annoyed that I forgot to get a picture of them, I'll try and get one for another post.

Today we went to Covent Garden and somehow ended up at South Bank. The Christmas market here was definitely much more relaxed than the one at Winter Wonderland!

I'm pretty shocked at how much Christmas we've managed to squeeze in this weekend, I think it's safe to say we won't be watching a festive film tonight! It's been lovely though and has been a relief to get most of my Christmas shopping out the way.
