This year I am proper excited for Christmas. It’s the first year W has any idea what’s going on so I’m already enjoying the build-up… he loves Christmas trees and lights, and has a good understanding of what Santa’s about!
So it was lovely yesterday to meet the big man himself at the launch of Santa’s post office in Cardiff Bay. (He isn’t usually at Santa’s post office – he was only there for the launch!)
When the letter’s ready to go, you pop it in the postbox and press the button to watch the letter travel to Santa in Lapland – a really cute touch! Even cuter is that we’ll get a letter back from Santa before Christmas – can’t wait for W to get that!
You can find the Post Office in the centre of Mermaid Quay (in the row of shops) it’s open every weekend in December and the best thing is it’s free! They are collecting money for the Tenovus cancer charity.
As it was a launch event it was nice to briefly meet other local bloggers and their children: Cardiff mummy says, Kelly Allen, Welsh mummy blogs and We made this life. I say briefly as by that point W was clambering over all the Christmas displays so off we went for a walk…
We walked past the boats and ducks of Cardiff Bay and headed to the Wales Millenium Centre (W pointing out the ‘beach’ on the way which was there about 6 months ago – he has a great memory!)
W loves running around the lobby there – I haven’t been in there for ages so was nice to see a couple of Roald Dahl displays including tortoise fishing! And W loved the Christmas trees in there.
