WOW what a very busy two weeks we have had. I almost don’t know where to start. Mummy has been so busy and apologises for not having time to help me on my blog.
So lets start from the very beginning since I last blogged. That week mummy and I weren’t really feeling the best, we had the beginnings of a cold, runny noses and we were sneezing a little bit more often, so we keep it quiet for the first part of the week, we spent most of our time chilling out at home, playing with my toys and reading books. On Thursday we were ready to face the world and mummy’s friend Robyn came over to visit. Mummy and Robyn had planned to go shopping and off we went. We spent most part of the day at Westfields and only stopped for lunch. The funny thing was we spent a lot of time at those shops but they barely bought anything. Before I was born mummy and Robyn could shop like no tomorrow, but not today they were very well behaved. We also went for lunch but I wasn’t really feeling it, so I made a mess and mummy and Robyn had a yummy but short lunch at Nandos. Robyn was going to see Rhianna in the evening so we all decided after shopping to get some lovely cheeses and wine and went home to hang out.
Friday Robyn came to get her things and have a yummy fry up in Chiswick. Obviously I didn’t get to try anything, I had toast, but it sure did look shiny and smelt delicious. Sadly Robyn had to go home in the morning so Mummy and I didn’t do much the rest of the day. She promised me however that we had something fun planned for Saturday.
Mummy used to enjoy meeting up with her friend Sinead after a days work when she worked in Victoria for Manpower, Sinead worked in the building on the corner at TFL (Transport for London). They loved catching up over a few bottles of wine. Mummy hasn’t see Sinead for a long time so Kristy had organised a brunch at a nice Australian place called Kopapa. They had some very nice breakfast type meals, whilst I enjoyed some Bang bang chicken fingers and grapes and had a nap. Later in the day we walked to Covent garden as we had read about a little Reindeer farm. We went to check it out, and it wasn’t so much a farm as it was two Reindeer in the middle of Covent Garden with some hay. It was nice though, mummy never realised that the Reindeer’s antlers were so furry. We got a picture with the Reindeer and the three of us in a sleigh. It was starting to get very cold but it was a really nice day.
Sunday was in theory a really fun day planned, however in reality was a nightmare. Mummy had wanted to get a Santa photo to send to all our friends and family in Australia, and because we are in London and I crawled for the first time here, she wanted to get the pic in Hyde park at Winter Wonderland. To be fair it is a really nice place and you can’t help but feel all chrismassy and jolly. But why on earth she thought a Sunday would be a good idea is beyond me. But we all caught the bus to Hyde Park and when we left we didn’t at all look at the weather and worry, however when we got there it was another story. It looked a bit shady with a high possibility of rain when we first arrived and by the time we finally found Santa in Santaland, and hear about the 2 hour wait, it decided that the high possibility of rain was actually a guarantee. I was ok because knowing the weather in London can be unpredictable, mummy never leaves the house without my raincover in the pram bag. So they covered me up and I was snug as a bug. Hang on I forgot to mention that mummy had dressed me up as an elf especially for this picture. Any way, standing in the cold rain and knowing that Santa was 2 hours away, mummy and daddy decided to line up for a shorter and tastier line, the german sausage and gluwein line. Kristy and Julien were going to meet us there however mummy prewarned them about the weather and crowds and they chose the much warmer option of staying home, if I could talk I would have voiced the same idea. We didn’t last much longer either, once the last of the sausage was eaten we were straight back on the Piccadilly line home to Turnham Green.
Mummy promises to help me blog tomorrow about last week, so stay tuned, it was BUSY. Our Virgin guy came over today, it was like a birthday miracle for mummy and our internet is finally working….touch wood. So we can skype and blog more often, no excuses mummy!!!
Chat to you tomorrow. xH
