Sunday really kicked off the festive season for us with the local Light Parade. It’s a charity event where lots of different groups take part in a parade adorned with (you guessed it) lights! There’s fireworks at the end and stalls and a couple of fairground rides in the Market Square.
Before hand we spent a couple of hours with friends – lots of screaming fun for the kids and mulled wine and cider for the grown-ups. I managed to find the Christmas jumpers I bought in the sales last January. As I pulled the first one out – both girls wanted it – then were thrilled to find out they both had the same one. We don’t do twinning very often – Imogen has too many hand-me-downs! They were so excited they couldn’t stop looking at the sequins and certainly didn’t want to stay still for photos.
We almost missed the parade as it was re-routed due to an earlier accident but we just caught it right at the end. The girls enjoyed waving to the people taking part and Seren had taken some change for the charity bucket.
We bumped into more friends afterwards at the Market Square and enjoyed the fireworks, music and a couple of rides. Before leaving as Imogen was WAY tired by this point, she had done quite a bit of walking earlier on. We headed home for hot chocolate and Christmas PJs!
