Man, oh, man. Winter has arrived in London and seems to have caused chaos everywhere. The temperature has been hovering above freezing for the last few days and it snowed yesterday. Proper big old flakes of snow. Munchkin went straight to the living room window yesterday morning and started pointing and saying ‘”ooo, oooo” which we took to mean that he was somewhat surprised by the snow. I, of course, then decided he needed a snowsuit which I suspect he will only end up wearing once and that will be in the end of it. I am sure he will look cute in it though and I’ll take some pictures to show you when we do go out.
Here’s a little snapshot of what he can see out the window
What else has been going on?
Well, outside of the house we went to a very cool place for kids in London. It’s at the Science Museum and in the basement they have a soft play area for little kids. It’s totally interactive with lots of things for them to touch, play, make music with and generally have a great time. Munchkin LOVED it, especially the water feature thing in the picture below. The even cooler thing about it is that it is free. Museums in London are free and the fact that they have areas like this for kids is fantastic. I highly recommend it if you are living in or visiting London.
I love the fact that when it’s cold outside you can cuddle up and keep warm inside. We are super fortunate to have a roof over our heads and a place to keep our child safe and warm, I am thankful every day for that.
Here’s what we have been up to inside.
Having warm baths filled with lovely bubbles (although Munchkin seems a bit perturbed by the bubbles. He’s going through a phase where he doesn’t like things on his hands – have any of you had this with your kids?)
Hanging out with dad watching skateboard/bmx videos on youtube. As you do…
Don’t they look similar?
And finally, I made the move to chop my hair. I got about 4 inches taken off and lightened it a bit. Took ages and cost loads. Did anyone at work the next day notice????? nOOOOOOO. However, I quite like it and I think Munchkin does too.
Excuse the terrible quality but it was taken using the phonebooth app on the mac. It’s the only easy way to get a picture of the 2 of us if Jer isn’t around. Yep, he’s a thumbsucker (Munchkin, not Jer…)
Hope you are all doing well
