Cowart's Common Room
Winter Wonderland

Today Em and I went to the Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park. The little German Market was fun, and we pigged out on ham and cheese pretzel thingies (not quite sure what they were!), followed by mini pancakes topped with Nutella and whipped cream (Em's choice) and then chocolate covered grapes on a stick.

We walked around, watching the people on the ice rink and the rides. There was one ride where the children sat on little reindeer that bobbed up and down - that was the best. Then we sat for a while in the park and (naughtily) fed the pigeons and the squirrels - London just wouldnt be the same without the pigeons, come on, admit it!

Then we stood at a stall and drank mulled wine while fake snow (I think it was foam, but it really looked like snow!) wafted down from the top of the little wooden house. When it started you should have seen the children's faces - they thought it was real!

With very best wishes for a peaceful Christmas and a prosperous and healthy New Year from me (and my doves!) to you all - especially all the people I have PM'd and emailed this year.

Faith xx

Fennie's Avatar Wow! Sounds great fun. And a lovely Christmassy dove. Here just the cleaning, tidying, last minute shopping etc before the masses descend tomoz. Sneaking a break for a dip into PC. Must put the champagne in the fridge! Happy Christmas Faith!

I used to LOVE doing London at Christmas time. Hyde Park is always so magical and all the lights in Oxford Street.

Lovely post Faith.

TIGGYWINKLE's Avatar What a romantic day you had Faith. The picture is the essence of Purity. I love the contrast between the white of the dove, and the red,red berries. Have a lovely day.
