When we have had enough, I'd go to the park or the forrest for a long walk in the sun (it's my perfect day and a perfect day always has sunshine) which would make us hungry again, we would find a pub, have a roast and some wine, go home to have a nap and then amke a fabulous dinner at home.
My perfect day before baby: Still a sleep in until 10 and still breakfast in a cafe and the people-watching.
I would swap the forrest walk for shopping and the home made dinner for cocktails in a bar somewhere in the west end.
Both days would only be perfect, and equally perfect, as long as I spend it with my Husband and my baby girl and in a pair of gorgeous heels (would have walking shoes in my car/bag) ;-)
Yesterday Husband gave me £60 ad so I went to Westfields today and Primark to look at a few things I've been wanting for a while. For £52.50, you can buy two dresses, a blazer and a t-shirt.
I also bought American Elle with Katherine Heigl on the cover adn a lipstick and a nailvarnish from Dior in Boots. Got the lipstick with my Boots points so it was free really :-P
Astrid and I had brunch at Tinderbox in Stratford today. Husband and I used to go to the one in Angel, but that is too far for me now, so I am very happy that there is a newly opened one in the Westfields shopping centre. I had a tuna panini and a large coffee. The panini was not that great, but the coffee was (I should have ordered a small one though). I am looking to cut down on my Starbucks visit and go to smaller either independent cafes or smaller chains and Tinderbox is somewhere I will return to :-)

I was tall for my age, had blonde hair and blue eyes (still have blue eyes) Always wanted to be next to my mum and her friends and listen to their gossip and girl talk. I have always had a few close friends, never tonnes of people around me. When I look at this picture Astrid looks just like me, but with darker hair. At other times she looks just like her dad :-)
When Iwas 7 years old, I fell down a large slide at the school playground and had a very bad concussion, was unconscious for 24 hours and I don't remember much before the age of 7 or around it. There are loads of pictures at both my mum and at my dads house of me and my brother and I always like looking at them :-) The one above is of me and my paternal grandparents, I think I might be between 1-2 years old :-)
Today has been all about family :-) We had brunch at Jamie's Italian in Stratford and then went for a two hour walk in Epping Forest. It was a perfect day :-)

"'Though the setting is the siege of Sarajevo in the 1990s, this gripping novel transcends time and place. It is a universal story, and a testimony to the struggle to find meaning, grace, and humanity, even amid the most unimaginable horrors.' Khaled Hosseini, author of The Kite Runner * 'A grand and powerful novel about how people retain or reclaim their humanity when they are under extreme duress...While reading The Cellist of Sarajevo you are imaginatively there, in Sarajevo, as the mortar shells are falling and snipers are seeking to kill you as you cross a street. Your mind's eye sees, your moral sense is outraged: your full humanity is being exercised.' Yann Martel * 'Galloway's style is sparse, pared down; his prose has the deceptive simplicity of a short story. The work of an expert, The Cellist of Sarajevo is a controlled and subtle piece of craftsmanship.' - Observer * 'Startlingly good... With prose as unsentimental and deadly as gunfire, Galloway superbly captures the tense existence of a city under siege where daily tasks become a gamble between life and death, yet where a single note of music can exert a power equal to any bomb or bullet.' - Metro" Reviews and picture from Amazon
It is a fantastic book, I have it on my Kindle and will read it over and over again!!
