I love H&M! Got this warm fleece-lined padded snow suit for our upcoming ski holiday in March. It's both wind and water proof, very pretty cerise pink and on sale for just  £12(!)- a real bargain!

Earlier today..

With the cleaner coming on Tuesdays, I always try and simultaneously pop out and run my errands around town, and today I met Anna for coffee at Pret on Orchard Street..

..I also stocked up on Linizio, our fave "lungo" (for big cups, not espresso) coffee capsules, from Nespresso in Selfridges
popped in to Holland & Barrett and bought almond butter (inspiration from here)..
and on the way home I walked past our local church that looked ever so pretty in the Winter sunshine!

Morning school run

Brr! Had to dig out the duffel coat this morning as the thermometer showed minus two!

Inside Info

1. New for this year.. I'm on day 12 of detoxing meaning no booze for nearly two weeks! Feels like a blooming life time, ha! 

2. This morning... I got both kids ready, left home at 8am on the dot, dropped Sean off, walked to Oxford Street and stopped by at Crussh for a "bulletproof" coffee then popped in to Primark Marble Arch before the crowds got there

Bargain buy - today I bought thick black cable knit leggings on sale for Scarlett Grace for £1(!) with a black white stripey matching top for £3.00 - courtesy of Primark

3. Hooked on currently: Sons of Anarchy season 6

4. Fave tune right now..  I can't get enough of this song! Have tweeted about this uber cool London girl group before, and now here's a new release - a real hit if you ask me!

5. Last night... Erik and John came around and celebrated Scarlett Grace's 1st birthday with the cutest  pair of trainers 
Infant Nike trainers in hot pink 

6. Spending a lot of time online recently... on researching hip trendy restaurants and bars in Manhattan

7. Thought of the day... The importance of the consistency in writing 5 things in my gratitude book every morning - I't a simple and quick task that has so many mental benefits 

8. Fashion trend I've observed lately and now follow;  the colour grey, in various shades .  This is new to me, I have never really bought anything that colour before!

New and noteworthy: Grey suede trainers and grey/silver fur gilet

9. Upcoming holiday: New York babay! (in less than four weeks)

Peninsula, all booked and confirm - New York here we come!

Happy 1st birthday!

As i post this, the clock is only a couple of hours away from striking 10pm...

...which is when 12 months ago to this day, I was rushed in to delivery theatre at the Lindo Wing maternity hospital...

.....and where I had an emergency C-section after nearly 24 hours in labour
and I became a Mum to a beautiful tiny baby daughter..and tears of joy streamed down my face
Today we went to Benihana to celebrate the first year our little munchkin 
Benihana is a fun and high energy Japanese steak house and sushi restaurant  
.. which is located in Mayfair, just off Picadilly
and serves top notch fresh yummy dishes (beef in above pic)

the boys enjoyed celebrating our little lady's special day
The Benihana chefs put on an amazing show as they cook on a hot plate at the table
Wow - hot stuff!

 Juggling knives proved very entertaining for the big kids as well as the little ones!

 What a difference 12 months makes - one year ago just arriving in the world and today sitting up having lunch (with chop sticks LOL!)

1 year today my darling - a great milestone in your life (dont look so worried!) - we love you unconditionally xxx

Back to school, and school info

No more lie-ins boo hoo :-( 
Pic from this evening's route via the newly relocated Swedish pub, now known as The Duke of York on Harrowby Street.

First school run in ages, as Sean's school term started today! For those of you who asked, it's a 8.20am drop off and 4pm pick up, unless he has after-school activities.

Sean currently attends science club on Thursday evenings meaning pick up an hour later than usual.  Oh, and it's roughly a 12 minute walk one way - erm yes I've timed it :-)

Morning cuddles
