Back in shape, I’ve been taking photos again! There are quite a few of Ameli this time round, but I’m sure you don’t mind too much. You are here after all! Oh, but I cannot wait for summer.
Day 126 â€“ Formally Fun
I went to see a solicitor about some paperwork I needed certified. We were in a very corporate part of London, with people in suits and ties and high heels. The floors were polished to a shine. Everyone spoke in hushed whispers. And then we saw this. I had to laugh.
Day 127 â€“ Standing My Ground
So proud of herself for crawling over to the chair then standing up. (All the while chewing on asparagus.)
Day 128 – Good Food Show
We won tickets to the Good Food Show from the lovely Nick at My Daddy Cooks. We watched his presentation on “Being in the Kitchen with Kids”, saw Karin from Cafe Bebe and spent the afternoon walking around sampling food, chocolates and various snacks at the different stalls. It was an unusual and utterly enjoyable afternoon out. Thanks Nick! Here’s Nick and his gorgeous son Archie behind him. Next to them is Ameli eating ‘droeworse’ a South African dried sausage. Good girl!
I made South African Vetkoek for lunch and we devoured it with the preserves and mustard bought at the Good Food Show yesterday…
Day 130 â€“ Setting Sail
Having spent Sunday indoors, we really had to get out. The weather was at least trying to look like spring, so we headed to the park. I love this picture. Look, it’s a big business, steering a ship. She had to concentrate.
Day 131 – Walking the Plank
We are blessed in London to have quite a few really nice parks around us. When the weather is good it is a great cheap way to kill the 40 minutes + travel time betweenwaking from the afternoon nap and dinner and a bath!
Day 132 â€“ Annabel Karmel
We were invited to the launch of Annabel Karmel’s latest book, Top 100 Pasta Dishes. It was held in the form of a cooking class which was great fun. Here’s Annabel showing us how to make ravioli, before letting us loose to try ourselves. Ameli really enjoyed Annabel’s tasters too! I’ll tell you more about the book and the session another day though.
