I normally take lots of photos when we go out anywhere for the day, but on Sunday we went to London to visit our friends and I decided to just do a few snippets of video. While photos are still my favourite, I find video easier when I want to be more ‘in the moment’ as I can just press record and edit it all later.
Mr E and I used to live in London many moons ago but Mads and LL don’t actually visit that often, so as such whenever Mads goes on a train to the ‘big city’ she gets really excited. We headed off early with jelly babies for the train, and she chattered non stop about what we were going to do. We were meeting one of my best friends from uni and her husband, and both my girls love spending time with them. What makes it even more exciting is that there is a tiny little baby growing in her tummy, and I can’t wait for there to be another little person joining us on these days out soon.
We didn’t do much, just went for brunch and had the most amazing breakfast ever (according to Mads but I have to agree) of huevos rancheros and pancakes, before taking a wander down to Southbank, going to the Tate and strolling along. When we lived in London Sundays were my favourite day, the whole momentum just seems to slow down, and we had a lovely day just catching up.
Here is a mini video on our day to the ‘big city’. I love the music on this video because for all the horrible things you hear about on the news at the moment, my girls really do make me thankful and feel like it is still a beautiful world…
