Smart casual ✅

No need for a coat as its unusually warm in London today, with 12 degrees! So my fox fur came out with my matching bag, pair of trainers and another jumper with bell sleeves that I luv #GreenIsTheNewBlack

Winter 🎑 Wonderland & more celebrations















Sean's birthday celebrations continued with Daim cake etc at the spectacular Hyde Park destination, and with Mum and the uncles visiting at home with more pressies. Needless to say, Sean was a very pleased little boy ❤︎

Sean 9️⃣ today





Lindo Wing, a few minutes after 10pm, 27th November 2008 (birth story here

Happy birthday to my wonderfully kind, gentle and warm hearted boy who's 9 today. Thank you Sean for teaching me unconditional love. Here are a few life lessons I put together for you this morning. 

ALWAYS REMEMBER TO:

say please and thank you

stand up to bullies

be especially kind to the elderly, disabled, children and animals

be a gentleman

forgive but not necessarily forget 

have at least one good friend

have a good firm hand shake

look people in the eye when speaking to them

always tell the truth

hold the door open if someone is behind you

and last but not least - love your mummy & daddy and accept if we make mistakes sometimes xxx

Christmas Fair Swedish Church


Now...


 ....and then. 

This pic came up in my FaceBook memories and my how little Sean was. Pic taken back in 2013 at that exact same hot dog stand. 











Have a very Scandi Christmas with the help of the annual fair in the Swedish church in Marylebone, selling all sorts of festive Swedish treats, crafts and gifts.  

The pop-up cafΓ© upstairs in the actual church serves open sandwiches too (I had the traditional prawn dill egg mayo - see pic) as well as the Swedes' take on mulled wine: glΓΆgg. Well worth a visit if you ask me!

I heart Primark

And here's why ♡

New and noteworthy

Movie 🎞 Time




On Sunday after rugby practise we strolled over to Bayswater (kids on scooters), stopped at Starbucks for a Gingerbread latte & a cinnamon bun, and then went on to watch Paddington 2 in Whiteleys.
It was an utterly loveable sequel, and Hugh Grant makes a great come back in it too.  Highly recommended family movie ✮✮✮✮✮

A family affair ♥︎

 Dad tagged along on the morning school run

The games on morfar's phone is far more fun than mummy's
Beautiful London morning
Family dinner at Erik's with both mum and dad - quite surreal lol 

Catching up and reminiscing of the good old days 
John John served meat (12 hours on the slow cooker) that melted in your mouth with roast potatoes - delish! 

It's not a real party until the guitar comes out! 
This was Dad's second visit this year

He also went with Alan to watch Sean practise football with his team Regents Park FC (he plays 3 hours every Saturday morning!)
