The weekend

This weekend began with a crazy yoga class on Friday, and I'm still feeling the effects. Which is surprising, considering that I spent most of Friday night listening to music, reading my book and sipping on a large glass of wine while relaxing in a bubbly bath - or is it?

Saturday saw Lady Liberty and I visit Borough Market where we made some delicious purchases. I can totally recommend the delicious mushroom pate from Pate Moi. We also had some delicious salami with black truffles (there is also a wonderfully subtle fennel one too). And some fabulously smelly cheeses - guaranteed to keep a large piece of the park to ourselves!

We then wondered over to St. James's Park, after stopping off for picnic supplies: waterproof blanket / tablecloth, cutlery, paper plates, bubbly glasses and of course princess-esque hair-clips - it would have been rude not to! On the subject of rude though...

When promo girls wear long dresses!

Today was such a lovely sunny day - I just had to spend most of it in the sun, outside! I read the paper and of course my book, took the odd nap & had a smorgasbord of Borough delights for lunch!

With a cold beer - who could ask for more?

And while outside the gardening bug took hold! I have to admit to braking the no-weeding-till-we-know-what-it-is rule, but I applied the if-it-wasn't-there-last-night-and-is-now-several-cm-tall-it's-probably-a-weed rule of thumb. It was also exciting to see some of the flowers coming out to play.

In a house full of girls, how could you not have a plant called Hot Lips?

To finish the day a Poussin was on the menu - and it didn't fail to delight. I'm going to bed looking forward to the other half for dinner tomorrow!

  1. Must have walked past you on Saturday morning at the market - It was I who also bought a tub of pate moi and I can attest as to its greatness; mooi moi!

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
