On Monday the 21st July myself, OH, teen, tween and toddler had a day in London. We knew before we went what we would like to do. We had planned a few different things but we thought we would see how the time went to see what we could actually fit in.
We knew we didn’t want to use the tube. Firstly because OH is not entirely keen on trains, let alone underground ones :)
Secondly the tube would have cost us £36 whereas using taxes on the day cost us £17! Big difference!
This was Harry’s first time on a train, he loved it!
The older two have been on trains when they were younger but they couldn’t remember so it felt like their first time too. They loved it and were really excited, but in a cool way, obviously :)
First I will tell you how our day panned out and then I will include my favourite photos at the end of my post.
First we had the train journey. When we got off we had a taxi to marble arch. We sat in Hyde park and ate our lunch that we had packed, it was lovely, the weather was gorgeous!
After that we walked to Harrods to have a little wander around (it’s absolutely huge so could have easily spent the day there, but we knew we wanted to do more than shop) after that we walked to The Natural History Museum. This was really fun, amazing for free! We walked around almost all of this museum but it was extremely hot and we started to not enjoy it because it got too hot! So we went next door to the Science Museum, again free and amazing! This museum was cooler and we enjoyed it a lot more. Again we couldn’t get around the whole museum because our tummies were telling us we were ready for dinner. So we had a walk to find food. I offered all the lovely places to eat but what did everyone choose? Yes, McDonald’s! Boring!
After dinner we walked around a little bit again and then had a taxi back to the train station. We had half an hour in the station before getting on our train. Due to a customer accident? The train was cut from 8 carriages to 4, it was horrible! We had to stand up until last 2 stops, that was about 30 mins out of a 2 hour journey!
So apart from the journey home it was a great day! We can’t wait to do it again 😃
Here are some photos of our day….
I was going to have another word involving my sofas but I think I’ve bored you all enough with them. I was also going to choose a word around the kids being of school and driving me insane but I wanted a positive word today so I am choosing SUN! I’m not a huge fan of the sun, I’m much more of a winter bird but having said that we have had a nice couple of days together because if the sun.
We went to our local country park for a walk and a picnic. One day we went shopping and then out to dinner. I walked into the village centre with the kids and visited the park and
We’ve also been enjoying the garden. I’ve put together a few of my favourite photos of the week…..
Yesterday it was so lovely out! The older kids had stayed over at their nan and grandad’s the night before and OH works nights so a lot of the day was just Harry and I. We had so much fun together, I loved it!
We splashed in his pool (I let Harry be naked for most of the day and he found it hilarious to splash water on his winky) washed his car, ate ice poles, jumped on the trampoline and went for a walk :)
Here are a few photos of our day
Am I being my true self on my blog? This is a question I as myself a lot and one I find myself struggling to answer.
Firstly I say yes. I don’t lie on my blog, I say what I think, I say what I would say to any of you in person.
But then when I think a little more, I remember that there are people in my real life that I haven’t mentioned my blog to and I don’t want them to find it. I asked myself why I don’t want them to find it and I don’t know how to answer. So again I wonder am I being my true self? If I was, surely I wouldn’t care who reads it? Or maybe I’m just not confident enough in my writing?
Do you think you are your true self on your blog and social media?
I was recently asked if I would like to review some prints from Huggleup I had been following them a while on Twitter so I knew I wanted some but was waiting to decorate my living room. I have just finished decorating it so I jumped at the chance to review some.
You can choose polaroids, squares, magnets, petite polaroids and petite squares. I chose petite squares
You can choose 20 photos for the poloroid and squares £12.50 , 44 photo’s for the petites £11.50 and 22 photo’s for the magnets £12.50 (these are going to be my next purchase)
You can order through the website or app, I chose the app. It is incredibly easy to use.
Shipping and then checkout, that’s it!
The photo’s came so quickly too. When they came they were better than I expected. I thought they would be on photo paper but they are on a type of strong card, a lot better than expected. They are great because kids have a habit of ripping up photo’s but it’s impossible with these as they are so tough! The quality of the photo’s are excellent too. Being as they are not on photo paper plus being compressed you would think the photo’s would be grainy or faint but they look great, really clear.
We have put some in some framed fridge magnets we got from Tesco for £3 each
some in a frame from Wilkos (we plan to buy two more of these and put them in a row above our sofa)
and we are going to make a feature out of the rest. Not sure how yet because I have so many ideas, thanks to huggleup’s Pinterest :)
I love them and would definitely recommend. I love them! (did I already say that?)
