Goals and Bucket List for 2018

Whats On Weekend 2nd-3rd December South East

Goodness me its got a bit cold all of a sudden hasn’t it?!  We decided to go on a family day out to enjoy the Christmas lights at Waddesdon Manor last weekend.  The lights and the atmosphere there was fab but I had an epic fail on my part by not taking the kids hats, gloves, etc.  We were all absolutely frozen and after just 2 hours had to abandon our visit and head home.  Lesson learned.  This weekend I will be heading to the shops to purchase thermals and warm winter clothing so we don’t have anymore trips ruined by the cold!
