Our last weekend away as a family of three, Autumn in London

Last week my little gang accompanied me to the city for a couple of days away for a last trip as a family of three. I had a couple of events I wanted to attend and being eight months pregnant I knew it was going to be a bit of a struggle on my own (not to mention the very real chance of actually going into labour!). We also thought it would be nice to fit in some touristy bits with Wilf before his life changes forever.

We visited a couple of press days (see my Boden post here) and had lunch in one of our favourite places, Vapianos (mmmm all the pasta!) and then headed to our hotel to chill out. It was so nice to take things easy after a busy morning so we pretty much camped in our suite and got room service and chilled out. We even had breakfast in our room the next morning in truly lazy style, there is something so indulgent about room service! I love that I get to share trips like this with my favourite people and that Tom is always so up for supporting me with my work.

Some treats from the new Little Bird by Jools range for Spring / Summer!

The next day I had an appointment at the Excel centre so Tom took Wilf round Trinity Buoy Wharf and for pancakes and a milkshake at Fatboy's Dinner. He took my camera and these snaps for me so he could show me what they had got up to. Apparently Wilf was directing him on the angle he should take them from and posing for him, such a bloggers child!

The DLR was actually not running due to strikes so we got to take the cable car over the river which was a real treat. In fact we loved it so much we went on it twice, it is a bit weird when you think about what is holding you up there keeping you from falling but the views were amazing!

After a busy morning we headed to Covent Garden and the place we were staying for our next night (blog post to follow on that as otherwise this post will become way too picture heavy!). We rounded off our trip the next day with a trip to the Natural History Museum (Wilf's choice) which he absolutely loved. We've been for the past couple of years but he really really got into it this year which was amazing to see and lovely to spend some quality time with him without getting distracted by everyday life.

We actually went away whilst some building work was being done to our house and it's finally been finished today which is such a great feeling. It's been a bit chaotic so it's nice to really focus on nesting and preparing for the new ones arrival in the next few weeks! I'm actually full term in a couple of days so realistically it could be any day now, eek!

I've been doing a weekly pregnancy diary over on Cosatto's blog if you wanted to catch up with any pregnancy posts over there too!
