What started off as a little trip to a Christmas Market at the Lost Gardens of Heligan turned into a lovely walk around the gardens too. We met up with our northern friends (more like family) Kerry, Anita and Mick with their two little pooches Tia and Monkey.
After a browse around the stalls we had a quick pit stop for drinks
Along the route there were also some joke boxes where you had to guess the answer. I got most right which is either really good or slightly concerning that I know the answer to so many bad Christmas jokes …. anyway we came along to mistletoe hanging from an archway which was cute and stopped to swap Alfie over so Daddy could carry him for a bit (and thank God we did because there was a stupidly steep hill later on in the walk which we didn’t know about. If Alfie was still strapped to me we would never have made it to the top!).
After our swap we came across some animals which Alfie wasn’t bothered about in the slightest. Did you know emu’s make a weird growling noise?? Me neither and it’s not very pleasant. I did manage to get a quick snap of some cute sheep.
Overall we had a fantastic day and was a really lovely start to the count down to Christmas with only one week left at work filled with Christmas activities, a world Christmas party on Friday and Angarrack lights and food with the besties in Sunday it’s shaping up to be a pretty good month. Oh and not to mention Alf’s first Christmas!!!
