each year mum and I take the boys into the city by train to look at the Myer windows.
this year it was a few days before Christmas as Hugo only finished school on Friday. the train ride is a highlight.
we also visited Santa this year. the boys were happy to sit without me this year but mum convinced me to hop in with them .. maybe next year. the Santa we saw was lovely. took time to call the boys their names and talk to them with genuine interest.
we then went and had a coffee and milk shake together before bracing ourselves to queue to see the windows.
