Our day out in the West End

Today Little Sis and I headed into the West End for a mini adventure. Our first stop was the new William Morris exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery. Little Sis was very well behaved despite the exhibition being completely child-unfriendly. There was nothing for her to do and everything was positioned so high up I had to hold her all the way round! After we left the exhibition we found a small sketch book and she enjoyed drawing her own pictures in it.

The Artisan Market

We spent the morning at our local Artisan Market. We hadn’t visited for ages so we were all happy to look around the different food and craft stalls.

Big Brother was particularly taken with this stall, even when we explained what it was.

IMG_7244He also enjoyed sampling some products.

IMG_7246He even got a tattoo which Auntie Caca would have been proud of.

IMG_7248After all the sampling and buying it was time to play.

Ben and Holly magic this half term

Little Sis is a fan of Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom, so she was pretty excited to open a parcel containing the new Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom: Planet Bong DVD (which was released on October 6th) and a copy of Christmas at the North Pole book. The brand new Ben and Holly’s website launched at the end of September, so kids and parents across the nation can enjoy a variety of Ben and Holly magic this Autumn!
