London in Autumn

| November 6, 2012

London is stunning in autumn with the leaves changing colour and a brilliant blue sky.

Imogen has enjoyed finding conkers, splashing in puddles and collecting different coloured leaves. Squirrel spotting is also an essential part of our daily walk in the park.

I’ve found the cooler weather has called for heartier foods and this week we’ve been enjoying Leek and Potato Soup and Pastry Free Vegetable Quiche.

London Zoo

| November 1, 2012

We had a fantastic family day out at London Zoo and Imogen loved seeing all the animals.

Imogen carried her favourite toy Tiger everywhere and the expression on her face when she saw a real tiger was magical. The monkey house was amazing with monkeys swinging above our heads.

Imogen’s wearing her cute Laura Ashley hat and gloves. Her Heart & Dog Print Gilet is from the Marks & Spencer Kids Clothing range and is practical and warm on cooler days.

This tiger ride was perfect for Imogen!

We weren’t the only ones who were super tired by the end of the day!

One of my favourite parts of London Zoo was the Butterfly Paradise exhibit. We walked into an area full of butterflies and moths flying freely from Africa, South-east Asia, Central and South America. It was an incredible experience as we became a part of their environment.

St Paul’s Cathedral London

| October 31, 2012

We visited St Paul’s Cathedral in London this week and enjoyed the late autumn sun and crisp weather.

St Paul’s Cathedral

The new One New Change shopping mall on Cheapside has a great selection of shops and is open every day of the week. It’s an open shopping mall and we found the cool wind refreshing as we went from shop to shop. The mall faces out to St Paul’s Cathedral.
