Despite two outings, we’ve had a quetish week. Well, uneventful, but not exactly peaceful…
Day 56 – Flowers
My lovely husband brought flowers home, for no apparent reason. What a warm colour they are. Beautiful
Day 57 – Cake Time
I know, I know. This is a badly taken picture of a lovely subject. I apologise, Kate.
It was my friend Kate’s birthday dinner, and I had baked her a cake. It was my first night out away from Ameli (in more than a 30 min radius). I baked the cake, then decided it needed another layer. The second layer came out the oven 15 minutes before I got on the bus to Trafalgar Square! Out the oven and in the freezer to quickly cool so I could ice it, and on my way. There was terrible traffic and the 45 minute journey took almost an hour and a half. I eventually climbed out the bus and in the rain with my umbrella and cake I marched through Leicester Square. The Square was jam packed with people for the Alice in Wonderland Premier,Â and I walked through in time to see Price Charles and Lady Camilla Parker Bowles (what’s her surname now?) arrive. (the reason for the traffic jam?)Â I manoeuvred the umbrella between my chin and shoulder so that I could use my Blackberry to find the address I was going to, and look up Google maps. Turns out touch screen phones don’t work so well when they’re rained on! I vaguely knew that it was somewhere off Carnaby Street, so I walked around for an additional hour (dropped the cake once!) looking for a bar or restaurant with a ‘Z’ in the name (that’s all I could remember of where we were meeting). I finally found them at 8 o’clock, an hour late!Â Kate graciously forgave me for being late and utterly flustered, and I believe she was pleasantly surprised by the birthday cake.
So. Again, apologies for the broken Blackberry blurry picture, but it’s the only evidence IÂ have of this whole day in my life!
Day 58 – Parcels from Aunty Santa
A very dear friend, Kesia, sent us some lovely parcels. Stereotypically of babies, Ameli enjoyed playing in the box and with the Styrofoam (I kept a close eye on her to make sure she wasn’t eating any!) while I was getting excited about the beautiful summer outfit she sent Ameli, and Martin was wrapping himself in the fluffy blanket she sent him!
Day 59 – Heat Sensor Photo
We went on an outing to the Science Museum, where they have this heat sensor camera. On the right is me with Ameli in her sling while I take a photo of the picture of us. (The darker the hotter it is. It was warm in there.)
Day 60 – Photos from the Science Museum
We stayed indoors all day recovering from the hectic day at the Science Museum. I spent the day going through photographs. I loved this one. It’s a mosaic, I guess, made up out of balls of (unchewed!) chewing gum.
Day 61 – An Indulgent Moment
This is one of my favourite things in the world – a morning coffee with melted marshmallows. Unfortunately I’ve now decided to go cold turkey on this addiction called sugar, and to cut it from my life, so I had to immortalise my old friend, so that I could move on from it. I’ll miss you, morning sugar rush.
Day 62 – Two Good Reasons
So you might be wondering why this week seems rather uneventful. We do have a good reason. In fact, we have two good reasons
Thanks for sharing in our week!
