Maisie+Churros=Yay!

Good Monday to one and all. I hope you are all feeling good today. Its Halloweeeeen! Looks like we’re dressing Bertie up as a pumpkin (not my idea). 

Anyway, I am sharing some pictures from Saturday, when Maisie and I spent much of the day together (minus Bertie taking up all of my time/energy/patience etc). He had a daddy day. 

I surprised Maisie with tickets to see her favourite author, Jacqueline Wilson give a talk and book signing at the Foundling Museum. It was thoroughly enjoyable and Maisie was over the moon! Afterwards, with a signed book and a smile, we stopped off for some lunch, followed by a shared portion of churros with hot chocolate sauce. De-li-cious to the max! It was so lovely to be on our own together (and to sit on the top deck of the bus...what a novelty?!) We had such a nice time, and I know it meant a lot to Maisie too. She is extremely patient and understanding about the amount of my time Bertie consumes. Later that day we even managed to fit in a mother and daughter trip to the hairdressers. First time in over a year (although I still hate my hair, dammit)! All in all, a precious day.

  25. I had a mother and daughter day last wednesday, the first one in ages, it was wonderful... You seem to have a great girl too, and like mine she seems to be a very good big sister. It must not always be easy for them to now have to share after such a long time as single child...
