Last weekend I had a lovely little day trip to London with my Mum. We try to have a girly day out every so often to indulge our love of food, shopping and the theatre. London always feels so magical before Christmas, and we enjoyed a perfect day of seeing all the Christmassy things, as well as a small spot of shopping, lots of eating, and a trip to see Matilda! I have wanted to see Matilda for ages but the tickets are just so expensive! However, we decided to just go for it as it is a show that has been on our hit list for too long, and we managed to get some relatively reasonably priced tickets. The show was absolutely amazing, and it has secured its spot on my favourite musicals lists... a much coveted award! I couldn't believe how talented the little kids in the show were, especially the girl who played young Matilda. Every time I go to the theatre it makes me wish I pursued a career in musical theatre!
As well as the excitement of the evening, we also had an afternoon tea at the Colonnade Hotel in Warwick Avenue. I bought it as a birthday present for my Mum in September as we have always wanted to do it. It was the perfect break from the cold, and the champagne and cakes warmed us up perfectly. We also managed to squeeze in a look round the Christmas market on South Bank, brunch at my favourite eatery- Le Pain, a walk around Little Venice and Carnaby Street and dinner at yummy Mexican chain, Wahaca. All in all a very busy and tiring day but the perfect mummy-daughter day trip.
