This year we were a bit early, and they didn't have Father Christmas but that's ok. It's quite difficult shopping with the two little ones, so we tend to get what we need & go! I had to get some wrapping paper, as my local supermarket didn't actually have any, I also needed some big gift bags, so I popped in Card Factory. It's great value in there, and they always have so much choice! I was also looking for a few Christmassey movies, i.e Love Actually & The Holiday! I haven't watched them this year! I managed to find The Holiday and a couple of other cheesey rom coms. Perfect!
We also popped into a couple of charity shops, I tend to let my little ones pick a small cheap toy each when we go shopping (as long as they are good)! As a special treat, and they like to pick their own things! My little girlie got a small barbie car and my little guy picked a horse & carriage.
We had lunch in an Italian restaurant called Tamburino's. It was so nice to actually go out for lunch, it felt like such a treat. We all had pizza's, and little ones actually ate for free! (With a paying adult). It was really good value for money, and the staff were so friendly and attentive.
Lastly, a trip to Clarks Village is not complete without a look in the Cadbury's shop! I picked up some Cadbury's Vanilla Mousse Snowmen! If you haven't tried them, you have to! I also spotted some Creme Eggs on the way out and I couldn't resist. Creme Eggs are my favourite, but they are only normally sold at Easter, so this was a very exciting find for a chocoholic like myself.
