Food heaven

Bear nipped in to the food hall at Selfridges on his way home tonight to pick up some goodies for tonight's supper - a selection of freshly made salads including artichoke, prawns, sprouts and langoustine - my idea of food heaven!

Kiss and make up ;-)

All time favourite lip-gloss by Mac in the colour "Underage"

Early morning stroll

Summer time is officially over! The clocks went back one hour, so we took advantage by grabbing a cappuccino and heading to a very quiet Regents Park. Happy Sunday xx

Bus art

We noticed this colourful bus sculpture on the way to school the other day. It is TFL (Transport for London) that is celebrating 'The Year of the Bus' and they've had aspiring artists paint the iconic Routemaster bus all across the streets of London. This one is called "Come Rain or Come Shine" and is located on Edgware Road, W2.

On Monday night I met up with Andrea, Kat and Gerry in St Johns Wood for our usual gossip over dinner and drinkies as Bear was at home with the kids :-) 

Sunny school-run

On Friday night Erik and John joined us back at this delightful part of London called Little Venice, and on a surprisingly sunny October's day, it certainly makes London seem the best of all worlds.
The canal side location is what makes the venue atmospheric, they serve fantastic sea food, very friendly service and effectively they have an open air terrace for a cheeky ciggies, electric heaters and blankets too!
We had reserved the "sofa" table in advance so we didn't have to go home when the kids feel asleep :-) And Summerhouse is now open all year around!

Dinner at Summerhouse and Thank You Anna

Not only did Anna (whose profession is hair dresser, although now she's a stay at home mum to Chris who's 10 days younger than Munchie) colour my hair, gave me a beautiful blow-dry AND fed Scarlett Grace her entire lunch  #SupaDupaFriend

Heading out for dinner and drinks tonight with my brother Erik and his boyfriend John to Summerhouse, our old time fave in London when the weather is good (read 20 degrees right now!)

Have a happy Friday and a good weekend!

Mah bhoy

Did I mention how much I heart this little man?! He's all grown up now, isn't he? Six years next month..My, how time flies! 
Lil man tonight with his new Dre headphones, watching  "Pippi" (Longstocking that is) movie on YouTube, in Swedish of course :-)

Newly bathed, fed and homework done, then a well deserved relaxing-time on the sofa before strict bed time at 8pm. That pretty much sums up our evening so far. Now I'm gonna catch up on some new episodes of Homeland season 4. Nighty night xx

New and noteworthy; hard case for my iPhone

It's good news!

Phew what a relief, it's been one hell of a stressful week leading up to the results. It's so mentally draining.  Feels like I've been holding my breath for the last seven days….But they came back good, and I can finally exhale :-)

The lesion is explained as an uncommon one, but the main thing is that "To date there have been no reports of lichenoid keratosis turning into malignant skin tumours". 

Our weekend

Clockwise from L to R: 
Scarlett Grace in her new hand-knitted cashmere poncho// Munchie and the dressing on my chest// Lil man on a park bench with a babyccino//Enjoying "Pick n' Mix", AKA Saturday Sweets, form the Swedish shop// leafy Sunday stroll, Friday night family dinner on Selfridges Rooftop

Inside Info

1. Yesterday... I met up with my friend Anna over coffee at Pret A Manger and bought another set (of four) of these Nespresso glasses that I love to drink from 

2. This morning... I was spoilt by a lie-in as Bear did the school run at 8am for a 8.15am drop off.

3. So far today I have... served up a tuna egg salad for mine and Bear’s lunch, as he is working from home half day #MidweekQualityTime 

4. Last tune I Shazamed... "The Knife"

5. TV series that I watch: None at the moment actually –Have watched all seasons of Homeland, Breaking Bad and Sons of Anarchy LOL!  Feel free to recommend any good ones! I started watching Lillyhammer on Netflix the other day but thought it was all a bit far-fetched. Will watch the first episode of Ladies of London (similar to Housewives of Beverly Hills, only this is about the IT-girls of London) that airs tonight.

6. Currently enjoying... our new bedstead with the high head board – feels like a new bedroom now 

7. Thought of the day... Scarlett Grace will be 9 months on Friday which I can’t quite grasp!

8. Last item of clothing I bought... an orange long soft cardigan from Primark for £16 – A bargain buy and great for school runs and chilly morning visits to Starbucks

9. When did I last cry: On Monday at the hospital when I was in theatre, had local anaesthetic and a little breast tissue cut off from the top of my left boob, to be sent off for tests. Will return on Monday for results and to remove the stitching.

10. Most commonly used swear word at the mo: "Flippin' heck" (Trying not to swear a great deal as I have a 5 year old who is aware of everything that I say!)

Super Soup

For today's lunch I cooked a green soup that turned out to be very delish!
Ingredients I used: spinach, kale, garlic, leek, green peas, veggie stock and a dash of cream

Autumn sunshine

Outfit du Jour 
On Sunday sunshine was pouring through our bedroom windows so we set off out in the early morning air 
My little princess was wearing her new  furry pom pom hat

We stopped by the playground, and Erik and John came to join us
I heart these boys!

Regents Park is a world away from the rest of central London

When a man is tired of London, he is tired of life, for there is in London all that life can afford - Dr. Samuel Johnson
We all had lunch outside, at Orrery Epicerie - a cafe and delicatessen on Marylebone High Street
Munchie pulling a funny face

Embracing Autumn and bright sunshiny days, because in three weeks we'll be turning the clocks back!

Ladies who lunch

Al fresco dining yet again, as the Indian Summer continues :-) With my girls Andrea and Gerry in our newfound place (with outdoor terrace and parking!) in St John's Wood. Cafe Med. You can thank me later x

Happy anniversary

This year marks our 3rd year together as husband and wife, and today is the day we said our dos :-)

 Believe me when I tell you: I love this man! 

Celebrating our anniversary a little early on Saturday, with some decadent dining (lobster) at Berners Tavern
This really sums us up LOL! 

Me: "What if I fall?" Bear: "Oh, but my darling what if you fly?" 
I have a tendency of being anxious and worry a lot, and Bear is always trying to stay positive, reminding me that worrying leads nowhere, and helps me to overcome it.  He's undoubtedly my rock!

Cheers to a lifetime of love
