6/12: Dickensian Christmas @ Wimpole hall

We spent a lovely afternoon at Wimpole Hall, where there was a Dickensian Christmas event, with plenty of people with proper old time costumes (150 years ago) and all the Christmas event set in place in the house.
Between the impressive things there was the Christmas dinner table, which for some reason didn't remind me at all about the canteen at my working place.

The kids were fascinated by some of the people costumes. Agnese asked if we could find similar dresses to let them play, but obviously we can't. So she said:
'Mum, what about dresses of the time when you were young?'.
Honestly I wouldn't have said Anna Maria became so aged so quickly...

Then Agnese and Rachele had a talk with Santa Claus, although Agnese was not convinced it was the real one. And talking about Santa I asked Agnese to write him a letter asking for a present. She refuses because... 'Santa can read my mind!'.
I think it is time to have a chat with her....

We wish all readers of this blog a very merry Christmas and a fantastic 2010!
