If you are up near Aylesbury in the next couple of weekends, the Bruce Monro Winter Light at Waddesdon Manor is well worth going to. The light sculptures are in the gardens of the Manor till the 1st Jan 2014. They are illuminated from 3pm so after you have visited the house you can explore the trail around the gardens as the light begins to fade. You can't really see the scale of the installations in these pics but they are BIG! Some sweep down lawns (the last pics show this) and other tower over you. They are great fun as well as visually arresting. For more info on Waddesdon Manor take a look here and for more on Bruce have a look here.
Today we took a break from the manic, hecticness which is the run up to THE big day. It felt really Christmassy at Waddesdon Manor but peaceful, calm and beautiful. We went to see Winter Light by Bruce Munro (more on that tomorrow) but whilst waiting for dusk we went in the Alpine Chalet (all decked out with snow, reindeer (fake) and Christmas trees), stroked Huskies (real), visited the lovely shop, my kids loved the woodland playground and we saw the gorgeous Lord Rothschild home (unfortunately only from the outside this time - sold out ) which is like a beautiful ornate wedding cake perched in wonderful lit landscaped gardens. It was blooming cold though so hot chocolate to the rescue.

I designed this for my friends website 'love little shops" to promote our local shops. If you live near MK have a look everyday, click on the number to see the promo of the day. Today is cyber Monday: 'Busiest online shopping day' but you could support local shops instead maybe? : )
