I decided to start doing some daily recaps to keep my family and friends updated on my day to day life here in London! So here is my first one.
The morning was a pretty average one: put dishes away, got the boys dressed, took the eldest to school. Only that evening did I realize that I had actually made my first mistake! M (what I will call the eldest in my blog) had a nice time walking and chatting, and only when we got to the school did I notice that the classes were already going or had gone in. But no big deal I thought, it wasn’t even 9am. Yeah, later that night I was told her class starts at 8:50. Big whoops on my behalf. However, in my defence we never talked about the official start times of the kids schools (which should be obvious by my thinking class started at 9) and as we were heading out the mom held us up by questioning M about a missing hat for five minutes. and if we had gotten to school five minutes earlier we wouldn’t have been late… But I digress. In all actuality I take full blame and have definitely learned my lesson!
So without realizing my error I returned home and started getting ready to go out to meet an au pair from Sweden for coffee. I also attempted vlogging when I was in the house. So far I don’t think I’m interesting enough to vlog; even my attempt at taking selfies today was a flop. I don’t think I’m cut out for this generation.
Anyway, the au pair was really sweet and we had a lovely time chatting and laughing over gingerbread lattes. Side note: shout out to Sweden for having an impeccable english program in school because her english was better than some Canadian’s I know. Hopefully I will be seeing her again because we really hit it off and she is quite close to where I am living!
That’s it for this post a think. First mistake, failed vlogging and friends, what more could I add? I’m off to drink some peppermint tea and watch a documentary on the Queen’s Secret Service… or maybe Gossip Girl. Yeah I think Gossip Girl.
