Oh how I love fairy lights! They are making the trees look so festive and Christmassy :-)
You so pretty!

My haven

As the Autumnal evenings are getting cooler and darker I love to retire up to our cosy sleeping loft to read, relax and meditate (and of course have my regular dose of Netflix box sets!).

Deep cleaning

Today we cracked on with things out in Amersham and every inch of Mum's bathroom has now been cleaned. 
Taa daahh!

Inside Info

Ladies in red, on the Chiltern line from Marylebone directly to Amersham

1. Big news … My mother arrived on Saturday (with a one way ticket!) and is now officially living in the UK.

2. Been thinking… It’s so blooming warm in London for November :-)

3. I’m feeling … happy, content and so grateful for everything in my life at the moment

4. Currently enjoying... watching my daughter learning new words daily, prepping for Xmas, wearing cosy cashmere bed socks, Starbucks’ new festive red cups and their gingerbread lattes.

5. Things I plan to do this week... go to see the Marylebone Christmas Lights being switched on (by Sophie Dahl) on Wednesday, and have mulled wine at the Swedish Christmas fair in the Swedish church Marylebone.

6. Last week... I had brunch with Andrea in Cecconi’s.

Bubbles for brunch at Cecconi's Mayfair
7. Currently listening to... this brand new tune by Coldplay – simply can’t get enough of it.

8. Can’t believe… my son is turning SEVEN next Friday!

9. Yesterday.. Mum and I went to her flat in Amersham and spent hours cleaning in preparation for the removal van (with all of her furniture) that’s coming in a couple of weeks.

After our hard work getting the flat ship shape, we took a well earned break at a local watering hole 

10. Spent too much time online lately... watching final season (3) of the U.S. TV series “In Treatment" - an intriguing and very interesting drama which gives a real insight into psychotherapy and every episode is an individual patients' session.

22 months today

Our 'Little Madam' is 22 months today! She is becoming more and more independent and now she can eat without help, take her clothes (including socks) and her baby trainers on and off.  

Unfortunately her eagerness to do things for herself far outweighs her abilities, and most of the time the milk and food gets spilled! The tantrums have also started and they are not so pretty - haha, but I've started with the "naughty step" in Super Nanny-style, just like I did with Sean, and it's already paying off. 

Also, its absolutely adorable to watch her trying to express herself and/or imitate the actions of us adults. Most exciting of all though, is to hear her blossoming Swedish language skills - I'm a very proud mum to say the least!

Remember remember the best ever November!

Today's new seasonal nail colour "Plum Noir" by Tom Ford
Oh Happy November! I'm so excited for this month I can't begin to tell you! Woolly jumpers, hearty food, sofa surfing, TV series marathons and Autumnal nail colours.  And not just that; London truly comes alive with it's own seasonal magic, lil man’s birthday is coming up, Winter Wonderland opens and my mother will officially relocate here permanently from Sweden - Wee hee!!!!!

Playground pals

With the children at Marylebone Playground today. It's quite amazing how Anna's and my kids are the same age. Nick is 7 and Sean turns 7 in a month, and Scarlett Grace is only ten days older than Chris - a real blessing for our play dates :-)
