Last weekends...Curious Dog and Brighton

On Saturday, Andrew and I had a rare treat...a whole day without kids! We love our boys to bits but it's nice to be able to spend time alone together and reminisce about the 'good old days' when we spent days like this all the time. My parents had very kindly agreed to look after the boys (ha ha!) and had a day planned that would knacker them out and have them early to bed.

We took the train to Waterloo and were able to drink our coffees in peace without having to chase Jacob up and down the carriage or take note of every other train that went past. We grabbed lunch from the Real Food Market, some wine, and sat in the sun watching the world go by. We walked down the river to St. Paul's Cathedral, took tourist pictures in phone boxes, and stepped back in time on a visit to 'Ye Old Cheshire Cheese' pub.


'Naturally fast food'
After a light and delicious dinner at Leon, we headed to the Apollo Theatre where I had bought tickets for Andrew's birthday to see 'The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.' It was supposed to be a surprise but whilst I was away one weekend Andrew decided to open my post ('because it looked important' he said) and discovered the tickets. It was a great show, well worth seeing, especially if you enjoyed the book. Afterwards, Andrew could have partied on, but I must admit I don't quite have the stamina I used to have and was ready for bed. Especially as I knew the boys would be up early in the morning ready for our trip to...

...Brighton! The forecast for the weekend was sun, temperature well into the 20s. We assumed this meant Brighton as well but how wrong we were, it was freezing! We turned back on the Pier as it was too windy. Reuben insisted on an ice cream on the beach but wouldn't move from the warmth of the pram. Jacob was the only one who didn't seem to feel the cold and was more than happy throwing stones in the sea (he would have gone in if we had let him) and eating his ice cream on a deck chair. We rushed back home and managed to catch the last half hour of sun in the garden.
