Early May Bank Holiday

Beautiful surrounds in central London
- I got up at 7am this morning, had a Nespresso coffee and headed out for a run
I opted for the Low Carb option for lunch at Bill's on Baker Street - the "Naked Burger" 
Adding cheese and bacon too really makes it LCHF and it was delish - Little Madam however is not cutting out on the carbs, and had a sausage sandwich :-)
 Walking past this flag is always a nice reminder that we live in London's "Little Sweden"!

Nxt stop; "kaffe kaka"(coffee and a cake in Swedish) which Scarlett Grace says when she sees Starbucks lol 
Rounding off the May day holiday by chilling out on the sofa watching family TV shows

At the brasserie - Family is simply everything!

Steak with Bearnaise sauce for Mum
I indulged in my favourite fish Lemon Sole - its good for the soul 
Coffee served in a stylish silver pot in the newly opened local restaurant 
We moved on for drinkies at Chiltern Firehouse
Compliments from the chef!  That's two cakes in one afternoon :-)
Bear and the kids joined us after school finished
Children are an asset, not a burden - and we take them everywhere with us! (despite everyone saying this place is not child friendly..)
The courtyard with its buzzy atmosphere is perfect spot for celebrations I think and the pics speaks for themselves..

Royal Oak

Wednesday at The Royal Oak and Mum's birthday celebrations started. Plenty more to follow... ;-) 💃

Latest from Louis Vuitton

This seasons must-have"Cliff Top Sneakers"

I was lucky enough to get my hands on the very last pair available in the whole of the UK and Europe's online store too (note sold out in all sizes!) - I love wedge trainers that oozes style as well as comfort and gives you that extra height. Also, they are perfect for strolling around in central London, for the school run and lately I've worn them going out for dinner with jeans and a blazer too :-)

East End Boys And West End Girls

On Sunday the whole family gathered in Bow/Mile End in the East of London to view a showroom of a flat that Erik and John are in the process of buying. It's a new-built with completion in June, has got two bedrooms and a large balcony.  And needless to say, we made sure to suss out where the local pub was, and tried out their Sunday roast too :-)
