F and a Mickey Mouse toy for Disney on Ice
On Sunday we made the most of our last family day and two week festive break before Paul returned to work. Knowing that F had been completely showered in attention from two parents I knew it might be a bit tricky when our normal routine set in, as Paul works away for half of the week and also abroad. So we decided that a special treat to mark the end of the holidays would be fun for all of us and we set off early in the morning, London bound for a day of fun.

Armed with a present for one of my besties/ F's Godmother, we navigated the city centre to visit the oldest pub along the Thames for a bite to eat. Steeped in 400 years of history, we snuggled by the fire and shared our Christmas adventures over food and wine as F showed off his new Transformer collection to anyone who would look.

But nothing could contain F's excitement as we stepped off the tube at North Greenwich and entered the O2 Arena to see the magical Disney on Ice. I was super excited too as I love figure skating and I had no idea what to expect.

We took our seats, the light dimmed, the music started and out skated Mickey Mouse. Immediately a huge grin appeared on F's face as he clambered on us for a better view. We watched as all of F's favourites characters came onto the ice, each doing a scene from their film, plus my favourite Beauty and the Beast.

The skaters were amazing, doing spins and flips on the Ice all while wearing fab costumes, there were fireworks from the Disney Castle and even snowflakes falling from the ceiling at one point. I can only  imagine how magical a trip to a Disney Resort would be especially through the eyes of a child. F absolutely loved every minute, he was completely mesmerised and couldn't take his eyes of the skaters. They even announced that Frozen on Ice would be coming to the O2 arena soon!

Once all the excitement was over we carried a sleepy F back to the car ready for our journey home. On the way he sang songs, talked about the ice skaters and Buzz Lightyear before falling asleep in his carseat. On arriving home we lifted our sleeping boy out of the car and with some skilful manoeuvres got him in PJ's and bed so he could carry on his sweet dreams.
