Today me and my girls were invited to the Cadbury event at the Shard.

We arrived there in the afternoon, we left the buggies downstairs, got through security checks and were flown up in a super fast lifts. The children enjoyed the videos that were shown on the roof of the lift. We went straight to the top of the Shard – the 72nd floor. As soon as we stepped out we saw the giant spider web. It was made of purple Cadbury rope. The fresh cool breeze blowing from the open top of the Shard gave it even more mysterious ambiance.

We were quite taken by it. The children were curious were the treats were, but still enjoying the breath taking views of London. It was a little misty today and under the sunset the colours were beautiful. Children were busy running around the whole of the top floor from one side to the other enjoying the roof tops of most of the buildings and spotting the landmarks of London.

My elder daughter was so happy to be “On top of the world” . I was really glad to see her that happy. While we were savouring the beautiful views of London, the Cadbury people brought the two chocolate towers. And the faces of the children lit, as they knew they finally found the treats. As some people left by this time saying, they were tricked.

There was a suspence for a little while. As the men said they have to wait. But five minutes lasted five seconds, may be another one of their tricks. And everybody had heaps of chocolates. Fellow parents asked their children if they liked the Shard more or the chocolates. Guess what their reply was. But a sweet treat on top of the Europe’s tallest building for Halloween is something to remember for long years ahead.

As the sun started to kiss the horizon I admiringly looked at the couples who were announcing their engagements on top of the Shard with flutes of champaign in their hands, I thought it is time to get back home. We were all happy, elated being up in the air sweetened by Cadbury’s generosity. There is still time to experience this. Besides as it is half term kids go free.

This morning I have spotted a this biiiig bird flying around on neighbours rooftops. The first thing that came to mind was who was expecting a stork.
Well it was actually a crane, but looked so surreal to see one on rooftops, imagining it is a stork and it has just dropped somebody’s precious packaging a gift of life 🙂
