SA in London: Earlsfield

Yesterday Meebs and I spent the the afternoon in Earlsfield with Lise. Imagine a pretty little town (I've only been to a small part of it, so in my mind it's quite small) where everything you want is on the high street / main road (hope I've got that right?) and that's just down the road.

Anyway we hung out at Mels (hope I have that right too?) enjoying the English weather - rain!

We had a ladies-who-lunch afternoon, including a bottle of this:

The house white

Then after flapping up and down the high street we headed over to where Lise is staying to hang out for a while...

Lise researching a cure

Meebs & Lise in heavy debate over a proposed vaccine for swine flu - the latest terror to strike the tube

After discussing important things Meebs headed home to cook a killer mac & I headed down to 321 Earlsfield Rd to pay a visit to inhabitants there-of.

Nina & Nikki - more serious discussions

Norky & Ben - not gay

For those who didn't get to see their garden in it's full glory (including myself) on Saturday, I thought I'd let y'all see...

Flippin awesome! Those are real tulips - not plastic!

It was a cool day, and only took about an hour to get home! But I did feel very London with my Oyster card in my pocket and route planned out in my head. That was until I got to Vauxhall, planning to jump off and take the Victoria Line! I stood up before the train stopped, practicing my 'train balance' and walked to the doors. The train stopped and I waited for the doors to open. I pressed the button to open them, but the train moved off, with me still on it! However, it was a little dark outside - hope I was standing on the platform side of the train!

We love you Chewy

Earlier this week we had to make the hardest decision anyone with a pet will ever have to make. You have to be totally selfless, even though you’re fully aware of the devastating consequences. I’m typing this with tears streaming down my checks and my nose running. Over the last few weeks Chewy had slowed down, he wasn’t his beansy self, but we knew this might happen and just took everything slower. On Tuesday we went for our walks, he ate all his food and got as many treats as he could. On Tuesday night, he climbed into our bed. His breathing was heavy, the lymph glands in neck had hugely swollen and he was struggling to breathe. He was disorientated and wouldn’t eat or drink. He kept wanting to go outside, but wasn’t able to stand. I slept next to him on the floor, in the other bedroom and came downstairs when wanted to. Eventually at about 5am we called the vet. She confirmed our worst fears. We booked an appointment for 7:45 that morning, we had a little time to say g

Marking milestones

When Bug was born, well a month or so after, I bought some cards to mark her milestones. Who knew that I should have bought them when I was preggo? So we missed a few photos… But now I find myself attempting to dressing her up for her milestones, only for her to accessorise them with accoutrements such as vomit! Then I jump around, cajoling her into smiling, while hopefully the camera is in focus and I actually press the snap button.  Those photos are all well and good. But I want some real-life photos and babies aren’t renown for their on-cue performances! So how do you actually get that photo of her first tooth?!?  That’s one of the current milestones we’re trying to mark. And she’s not particularly given to opening her mouth wide, unless it’s to cry loudly! I may not be parent of the year, but I’m not about to start taking photos of her mouth while she cries! So, it’ll just have to wait until she smiles for a prolonged period, while I conveniently have the camera to hand! Case in po

One good thing about social distancing…

Is that nobody comes too close and I can get away with only half brushing my teeth (no toothpaste, had Bug in my arms and wouldn’t have been able to rinse). And not wearing deodorant (again, the baby!) Also, still wearing some of my pyjamas, semi-disguised  as day clothes… But nobody can really tell cause they can’t get too close! Win! On top of that we had a very successful walk. The dog mostly listened and was easily distracted by treats. Bug slept the whole time and was seemingly nose-blind. And my back pocket doubled up as my coffee cup holder! Hands-free, here we come!  Oh, and because we were out walking for so long - two hours, until it was time for the next feed - the dog is exhausted! He hasn’t been this tired since his play date with best friend Amber! Lucky x
