Hooray! We made it! We’re in London!
We’ve been here about ten days and have just been busy sorting out the flat – getting towels, an iron, hangers, a kettle, etc… And of course the TV and Internet!
V is loving going to the park every day, feeding the ducks and playing in the playground.
I forgot how much I love London in the summer. Although I am a hot and sweaty mess!
I am trying to be extra organised. I have been buying clothes for baby and V (school uniforms included) in bigger sizes for LagosDad to take back with him. And I’ve even ordered baby’s crib and a new mattress for the cot in Lagos.
I know I don’t have to do it all now, but I need to feel as though I’m doing *something* to organise myself. Plus the sales are on and it is the perfect time to buy summer clothes!
V has been doing a little shopping with me. He is very happy to come and choose things for the baby (as long as there’s something in it for him).
In fact, the other day we were wandering around John Lewis (he likes to call it, “the shop where you buy your bras”), and we were looking at the all the teddies. He said, “Mama, I think my baby brother would love to have this cuddly bear. I’m going to buy this bear to put in his cot.” A lady was walking past at this time and she stopped to listen to our conversation, with one hand over her heart. A few seconds later he said, “Mama, you don’t worry about the baby ok? Don’t worry about anything because when the baby cries me and yaya (the nanny) will feed him his dudu (milk). Ok? You don’t worry.”
He really is growing up so fast.
Anyway, am off.
