Mr H decided to take a couple of days off work
Monday: Little Miss G opened yet more present and got treated to the local
Tuesday: Miss G sang 'Happy Birthday Dear Mamma' and then pretty much hijacked my day with a trip to see dinosaurs (National History Museum) and the lions (London Zoo). The first museum pleased Mr H a great deal, the zoo is always a hit with the little miss and I squeezed in a shopping and coffee break between the two whilst she napped in her buggy.
Thanks to one of Little Miss G's godmother we had some free babysitting and Mr H took me out for a lovely birthday dinner in the evening. Cheers to me!
Wednesday, Thursday and Friday were pretty much spent relaxing, playing with new birthday toys and receiving yet more birthday gifts,
On Saturday we all went to Frieze Art Fair, where Mr H and I were totally amused by Miss G's reaction to some pieces. It was either fascination and awe or open disgust. I now wish there was a toddlers Art Newspaper as it would surely be a great read.
Sunday was meant to be the day that we were going to take a bike ride to Regent's Park to admire the Frieze Art Fair Sculpture Garden and maybe take a boat trip down the river. A puncture on Mr H's bike meant that the plan was swiftly cancelled, so we had lunch in St John's Wood instead. I did find it quite funny that we left the restaurant with a kid covered in pancake stickers when the poor thing is actually allergic to eggs, perhaps it was some wishful thinking on her part.
