Just the two of us…


On Wednesday, B’s nursery was closed for an inset day and T had to go back to work, so I took the day off and we had a little one on one time.

We went to the Museum of London Docklands where he had a great time wandering around the exhibits, and playing in the children’s area. It’s amazing to find out about the city we live in, and it’s all free!

The children’s area is fantastic with lots of interactive play areas and we didn’t do the half of it because he spent the entire allotted time in soft play!

We went next door and shared a pizza and garlic bread at Pizza Pilgrims, where they give kids some stickers to keep them occupied. He enjoyed sticking them all over the place whilst swigging water and munching garlic bread, and the staff made a fuss of him whilst mama had a cheeky rosé. He loved it!

And we went to the Crossrail gardens where he enjoyed running about and shouting “Hello!” at a bird in a tree for half an hour.

We had a wonderful day. It’s so much fun to see the world through a child’s eyes. And it was all free apart from the pizza! It was lovely to spend time together and he still had a great time playing, even though it was just the two of us most of the time.

I don’t doubt there will be times in his life where he asks why he doesn’t have a sibling and maybe even asks if we can have one. But for now, he loves his dog brother and he loves his parents, and this mama enjoyed the fact that we could spend a precious day together, just the two of us. 💕

      It was! Quite unglamorous and mundane but it was great! X


  2. I love seeing your adventures! The Museum of London sounds nice and it was on my list during the last visit, but there is so much to see that we didn’t end up making it that time! I love going to free museums like this to see him experience new places. Our library also has an amazing system where they buy memberships to a lot of museums in the nearby area and the two closest major cities and you can sign them out to get in for free! It’s nice because the cost of a ticket is usually pretty expensive once they’re no longer free, even though they won’t remember it in a couple months!

      Oh I think it’s a nice little museum – there are two, the Docklands one and the central London one so I guess maybe you were going there? It’s great that all museums and galleries are free here! Seriously! You’d love it!


  3. I’m a wee bit envious. We stay in the house pretty much most of the time because it’s just too hard for me to take both girls out by myself, especially in the winter.

      Aww, we don’t have many days out because B is in nursery full time. Sometimes staying in the house is the nicest option… all cosy and warm! And I’m enjoying reliving my childhood with all the toys! (I’ve just done a very bad train track setup!)
