My entire extended family used to be able to get around a single table for Christmas. Now the kids are older, some are married, have kids and parents-in-law which means Christmas is now split between places and people. This year, as a pre-Christmas gathering, my mum arranged for us to go to see Santa in Kew Gardens which was a gentle treat for everyone. The little ones received gifts fro Santa, marshmallows were melted, carousels ridden and lights admired.
The sartorial win goes to my cousin’s four year-old-daughter who was given a penguin Kigu onesie by my mum. I have to say, I would be delighted if this was given to me.
Today, I opted for the tiny elephant pendant my best friend Francesca gave me this week for my 25th birthday. The elephant is my favourite animal and reminds me of the epic journey Cheska and I had around India during out Gap Year; not exactly Christmassy but hey.
