Most Thursdays Hannah and I have a girl's day out - Ava is with her childminder and Kaneu is at school until 3, so we have a long chunk of time to get together and gab, knit(though we never got very far with this!), eat, shop and sometimes even educate ourselves with some English history or culture. Today we met in Notting Hill and were rained in at Stabucks. We did manage to grab lunch and walk down Portabello Rd for a bit. Next week's plans are ambitious - Bikram yoga and the Natural History Museum. Here are some pictures from last weeks visit to Hampton Court. Ever since she loaned me the book The Other Boleyn Girl we've talked of going and finally went. It was really cool to see where King Henry VIII lived with his many wives. The grounds are beautiful and I definitely want to return in the spring. We are are anxiously awaiting for the movie to come out. If you haven't read the book you should!
X Marks the Spot
The other day Kaneu and I were walking home when he started pointing up to the sky and excitedly exclaimed "there's an X in the sky!!". Sure enough he was right. We often play "I spy" on our walks and his little eye never ceases to amaze me.
Kerryanne and Chandra for their suggestions. I'm going to do some research right now on Morocco and Turkey. Sunny weather here I come ...
