Black Park

After our busy day in south London we decided to stay local today. It’s been a while since we visited Black Park but it’s a great place to sail our model boats and the Farmers Market was on too.

We looked round the stalls hoping to find something for lunch but instead came away with fudge and popcorn! Big Brother wanted to have his face painted and he loved being a scary skeleton.

Red House

We spent the day south of the river. Our first stop was the wonderful Red House. We managed to tick something off our #50things list – Big Brother caught a falling leaf.

IMG_6814The house and gardens were beautiful. There was also a lovely cafe where Big Brother enjoyed a slice of Wombat Friday Chocolate cake (even though it was Saturday) named after Rossetti and his pet wombat.

Perfect play outfit

Our day started with a trip to Northala Fields to play with our model boats. The weather was a little chilly so it was a great reason for Little Sis to wear her new jacket from House of Fraser.

IMG_6756In fact her whole outfit was from House of Fraser as they kindly invited me to pick the perfect play outfit for her. She loves the colour pink so it was quite easy to choose her a sweet top, skirt and cardigan from Uttam. I’d never heard of the brand before but it’s cute and colourful which matches Little Sis’ personality. The top and skirt both feature a small dog print which she loves, thanks to Auntie Caca’s little dog, Bella.

IMG_6754The jacket is from Benetton and is great for this time of year. Little Sis insisted on wearing her wellies but you can see she was rewarded with a few puddles to splash around in. Eventually we went home and got ready for our friends. We had a lovely lunch cooked by Daddy and there was plenty of time to play.

IMG_6763After our food had gone down we headed off to the Lido for some more play.

IMG_6766There was a trip on the Lido railway too!
