The last few remaining days of little T’s half-term break was a hectic one. We drove over to Beds to visit her grandparents, we don’t see them as much as we want, although they did spend Christmas with us. That’s one of the downside of leaving away from family, you don’t see them often, worse for me, mine are oceans away, though luckily, I’ll be seeing some of them over the holidays!
T loves to sit in front with her dad, we allow it only in the small roads, but once back in the main roads, we move her behind again. I guess it makes her feel all grown-up sitting in front!
While T was happy to visit family, her main top place to visit was the mall so she could go shopping! On Monday, while her dad was in a meeting, little T and I went for a retail fix. She brought all her saved-up coins from her piggy bank, all £6.75 of it. Managed to buy a small mermaid that can swim in the bath for £5.75 which was originally on for about £12! She has a few pennies left to put back in her piggy bank. Since she was such a good girl, we told her she could have an additional toy she could choose, she wanted a Rapunzel doll and luckily for us, there was one on sale in the Disney shop. Phew.
And the day before that, we also went on a book shopping fix. As you can see from the featured image, little T chose more than a couple. She’s a lucky girl, her grandparents gave her a ten-pound note to spend in Waterstones, which didn’t take her long to do. She chose Goth Girl and the Ghost of a Mouse by British Illustrator and The Observer Political Cartoonist, Christ Riddell which was a bit pricey at £10.99 but so worth it, with its hard bound cover and lovely illustrations.
While her pile of books are a little bit advanced for her to read on her own (they all have chapters), she absolutely loves them. Her current faves are the Harper series by CBeebies presenter Cerrie Burnell. She loves Harper and the Scarlet Umbrella and managed to get the newly released Harper and the Circus of Dreams. She also bought another Chris Riddell book “Ottoman and the Yellow Cat” and Witch Wars by Sibeal Pounder. She reads them all at night with the help of her dad.
Aside from books, my little girl has a shoe addiction. I love them too, but not as much as she does. We’ve promised her some new converse, since her last one didn’t fit her anymore. She’s had red, pink and blue ones. This time she chose purple.
Yes, they are still a little bit big for her. But we purposely chose a size bigger, it has to last her till at least summer! 😉
I also bought her a few clothes, just basic ones like leggings, a few tops and a dress. Yes, it’s all about little T. Okay fine, I might have bought myself a new top too 😉
What about you? Do you or your little ones like shoes too?
