Travelling Tots: London

One of the most photographed icons, probably!

Ah, nothing like a bit of jet lag mixed in with the kids waking you at night to really make you feel like you need a holiday to get over your last holiday. It was all well worth it, of course. We had a pretty leisurely week that wasn’t too packed with activities, and the highlights were:

  • Incredibly wonderful weather – sunny but cool, and not a drop of rain – the boys actually have a slight tan!
  • Arriving at the (lovely but nothing fancy) hotel for check-in, only to find the entire Arsenal team gathered there. Nothing like a spot of celebrity spotting eh?
  • Doing the touristy thing and taking a city tour, and learning so much on it
  • Only having to look after 1 child – what a breeze!
  • Being able to go to celebrity chef restaurants because we only have that one child (more on that in another post)
  • Catching up with old friends
  • And of course, paying pilgrimage (for the hubby) to his favourite football team (out of London)

We were a little apprehensive bringing even Mittens along, but I’m glad I convinced the hubby to, because he’s at that age which is so much easier, and can enjoy himself a lot more. I also felt that he badly needed some undivided attention, and that some separation from his brother would be good!

I think we still have many more to-dos on our list, especially since there is just so darn much to see and do in the United Kingdom that I think we will definitely be back.

  1. Have I told you enough times how jealous I am of you? Heh. So cool that you got to see the entire Arsenal team at your hotel! No photos?
    Which restaurants did you eat at? I loved Jamie Oliver’s Italian. Had the famous roasted duck at Bayswater too, but thought it wasn’t that great, compared to what I’ve eaten in SG.
