First, we had the Bath Christmas Lights switched on by Mary Berry. Then there was the Bath Lantern Parade, filled with a huge array of paper lanterns which danced its way down Pulteney Street to the beat of Samba Sulis. The Bath Christmas Market has been in full flow for the past couple of weeks. It’s been bigger and better than ever this year! The Lantern Parade and official opening of the Christmas Market were even more special for me, as my mum and her best friend came to visit for the night ♥ My favourite time to walk round the Christmas Market has been during the evenings, when the crowds have started to subside. It looks so pretty lit up, with beautiful Bath Abbey as its backdrop. And last weekend, Christmas came to our house too! M and Lil’ L headed to Colerne to buy a tree. When they returned home, they decorated the tree and the living room as a surprise for me! After all this activity, the boys definitely deserved a cup of hot chocolate, which I made with the Elements for Life Spiced Raw Hot Chocolate, and topped with some vegetarian marshmallows from The Vegan Kind‘s latest subscription box. And now it’s time for me to treat three of my lovely readers with an early Christmas pressie ♥ The Raw Chocolate Making Kit giveaway ended at midnight last night and the three winners, chosen at random by Rafflecopter, are… 93 Tamzin 339 Poppy 522 Jane Congratulations to you all!
