I bet you didn't expect two posts on the same day, but weheeey. Here we go!
So, I actually took my mum back with me to London! I think we've talked about this for a bit over a year now, so both of us were super happy to finally make it happen! We spent some time wandering around Covent Garden, had the worst PizzaExpress experience (haha), checked out Liberty, laughed a ton, cooked the best cannelloni ever and made a kick ass key lime pie, went to Breakfast Club, played with E, went to Camden, and spent all the time we could squeezing each other a tad more than usual, bursting into laughter and just relaxed. Absolutely wish she could come here more often, and the rest of the fam obvi haha!
Last week was a normal one, had plenty to do with E, had playdates with Therese and L, also had a spontaneous pizza party with the two cuties just mentioned. After a couple of weeks off the gym, I'm back there as well, more motivated than ever (strangely enough, haha).
What else has been going on? I finally met up with another Swedish au pair, that I've been writing to forever, and now she's finally moved here. SO we decided to meet up and grab some food at Jamie's Italian. Took us about 30 mins to actually decide on what to order since we constantly fell back into conversations about everything else. Totally worth it though! Food/cocktails/desserts were totally amazeballs, and I do like her, so I mean, it's absolutely not the last time I'm meeting up with her, hehehe.
Spent the weekend at Therese's. Met up quite early on Saturday to go for a quick stroll through Broadway Market, since she hadn't been yet! Grabbed some treats and a quick breakfast before we walked back to mine, packed my bag and headed to Brent Cross, where we weren't alone. Gosh, sooooo many people in the same shopping centre with the sales still going, it was mental, we got incredibly hangry and then decided to grab a GBK before going back to Therese's. Our original plan of going turned into a girls night in with cheap wine, snacks, chatting, laughing and me falling asleep to Fifty Shades. Was invited to a Sunday Roast there as well, which I couldn't say no to, and omg. The best thing everrrr.
And now I'm sat here, about to fall asleep any second. Got an early gym sesh tomorrow with Connie, which is now my gym-buddie instead of wednesday-french-toast-breakfast-buddie. I mean, it's a good swap, but I do miss the french toast. Lots. Hehehe.
