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.
