Toddler Time at Picturehouse Cinema

| October 21, 2013

This week Imogen and I went to our local Picturehouse Cinema for Imogen’s first ever cinema experience (aside from the Big Scream which she went to twice with me when she was under the age of one). We went to see Rastamouse which was playing at Toddler Time. It’s a 30 minute session for toddlers and their parents or carers. I think it’s a lovely way to introduce toddlers to the big screen.

Charley, Peter and Kitty were chosen by Imogen to come to the cinema with us as she thought they’d like Rastamouse (perhaps Kitty more than the others).

There’s plenty of music, dance and singing in Rastamouse which immediately meant Imogen was a huge fan. She didn’t sit down once, choosing to stand and then dance whenever the music played.

Mudchute Farm

| October 18, 2013

The weather has been beautiful and sunny for a couple of days this week so Imogen and I took the opportunity to go to our local London City Farm. Mudchute Farm is a located on the Isle of Dogs and it has an incredible 32 acres of countryside.

Mudchute Farm feels so removed from London and yet you can see the skyscrapers of Canary Wharf. I love the freedom it gives families and children with the ability to run around in a farm setting as well as being able to see, touch and feed the farm animals.


Getting close to the donkey and horse who soon after this photo came up to say hello.


Canary Wharf skyscrapers just over the hill always give the farm such a surreal feeling.

Look what we’ve found! Perfect muddy puddles for jumping in.

The goats are adorable, they’re so friendly and come up to the fence so you can stroke their soft noses. We took some lettuce for Imogen to feed them and she found it hilarious when their mouths opened and they took the lettuce from her hand!


A rooster says a very loud ‘cockadoodledoo’ to me for taking a photograph of him. To which Imogen said ‘Mummy, let’s go now’ and she began pulling me away down the path.


This is almost as good as the real thing…

Autumn Leaves

| October 11, 2013

London is an amazing city to explore and have fun in with children. There are so many parks to visit, fantastic playgrounds, great soft play areas and wonderful museums.

But it really is the little things that can bring so much joy. The highlight of our outdoor adventures this week has been playing with and collecting the beautifully coloured autumn leaves that have fallen off the trees. Imogen finds a fountain to race them in!
