Christmas is over! I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and are enjoying the last of the festive period. Even if you don't celebrate Christmas, I hope everyone's had a good week so far! Today I'm off to my Aunt's house to have our last of the Christmas get-togethers this year; which means more photos, more food and more presents!

The day before Christmas Eve, I finally got round to visiting Winter Wonderland in Hyde park. I've only been once before which happened to be last year but this year was so much better! There were a lot more stalls and rides! I even found myself going on the 'power tower' sky drop and the 'star flyer' which took us 60 metres in the air! Unbelievably high and scary! We also took a fifteen minute ride on the big wheel which I didn't get round to doing last year; the view was incredible. 

Winter Wonderland is open till 6th January so you still have plenty of time to head on down there. I really recommend it! Although everything is stupidly overpriced (the rides were around £6 each) it's only there once a year!

snap crackle and pop, cheers for stopping by!
