– Delicious and divine treats for Mini and Moi
Puréed organic vegetables may work a treat for mummy but the real sweet deal is the super sensational Tots’ Menu at the Parlour Restaurant in Fortnum & Mason.
As we all know, this classic ice cream parlour is home to exceptional ice-cream, extraordinary hot chocolate and mouth watering cakes. And the dedicated kiddies’ menu features a selection of sweet nothings including ice cream sundaes, milkshakes, smoothies, cornets and fresh juices, as well as the full range of savouries at half the price of the adult menu.
Hmm, decisions, decisions. I’m spoilt for choice between the Tots Choc Sundae and the Vanilla Bean milkshake.
Now, how do I sweet talk mummy into taking me?
What Moi says:
Keep me sweet and I’ll take you for a Half Term treat.

– Light up the skies on 5 November (or thereabouts)
Quite a spectacle, when my Super Mummy met my Daddy. Boy, were there fireworks! I’m talking sparks flying. Stars colliding. Lighting up a dark sky. An explosion of colour. Bang!
Of course, my beginning had to start with a Big Bang.
And now that I am centre of their little universe, what better way to celebrate Bonfire Night than with an outing, en famille? The best fireworks in London are listed on Mini-et-Moi’s directory of Great Fireworks Displays.
Lights, colours, general intergalactic chaos: my idea of the perfect evening. Just please remember to dress me warmly, take lots of blankets and a flask of real hot chocolate. (None of that carob, soya substitute stuff.)
Now there’s a stellar idea.
What Moi says:
Fireworks Displays take place at different locations on various dates in early November. See our listing for the best place near you.
