Maisy’s First Trip To London

This time last year I hadn’t step foot in London for years, the idea of traveling up there and lugging around some small children filled me with dread – I’m not gunna lie the city scared me a little. Since I started my little blog opportunities kept popping up and the majority of these were in London, so the last few months I have been up a couple of times by myself for one thing or another and realised that it’s not actually so bad  I really do quite enjoy it – don’t think I could ever live there but its fun for a day or two.

Last week I was extra brave and took Maisy up with me! I was so nervous it’s one thing trying to navigate the tubes alone quite another navigating them whist trying to keep a toddler safe/amused. Thankfully though she was good as gold and really enjoyed our little trip, it was lovely to get some one on one time together – having three girls so close together quality individual time is sometimes hard to come by this was the perfect excuse!

Breakfast on the train!

Enjoying breakfast on the train!

We set off bright and early Friday morning and enjoyed croissants and orange juice on the train, Maisy was so excited about the train I tend to drive everywhere so all my girls love a bit of public transport.
I wasn’t sure how she’d be on the tube she doesn’t really like loud noises and it can be quite loud but she found it all so exciting.

We arrived (almost) on time for the Talk To Mums blog brunch it was all about healthy happy families, I really enjoyed the event there were lots of great brands to chat too they were all so passionate about the products it was interesting to learn more about what goes on behind the brands.
Also I got chance to catch up with a couple of me favourite blogging buds Heledd from Running in Lavender and Katy from What Katy Said which was lovely. Maisy was in her element with so much yummy food and drinks around her favourite being the cheeky cow cheese!IMG_9350

Once it was finished we headed back on the tube and met my mum she’s recently moved to London (when I say recently I mean 2 years ago) we explored the area a little together and picked my younger brothers up from school, was so lovely to see them and for Maisy to spend some time with her uncles – yes her uncles are only a couple of years older than her we don’t have the traditional family set up!

Too excited to stay still this was the best picture I got!!

Saturday we headed back on the tube to Hammersmith for a Disney/specsavers event before heading home, the event was fab for the kids Maisy really enjoyed herself I’m going to blog all about that tomorrow so look out for that.

After a busy couple days we grabbed some lunch to go and hopped back on the train, lovely as our trip was we couldn’t wait to get back to Lottie and Bella they were very missed and we were greeted with the biggest cuddles ever!

Attending events like these are so exciting I always feel so grateful to be invited particularly when it’s something I can also share with my children.

    It sounds lovely Amy and like you say a perfect chance to get that one on one time with Maisy, she must have really enjoyed it. I’d be so nervous going to London with my kids but you make it look easy, glad you both had such a nice time xx

    I’ve not been to London since my two oldest were in a double buggy at one and two years old which is over 20 years ago! Not sure if I’d like the hustle and bustle of such a widely visited city but it’s so exciting for young children I can imagine your daughter had a wonderful time 🙂

    Yeah to you and to some one on one time with Maisy. I love managing to get that time as like you say with 3 it is very tricky to do. This blogging is amazing when it brings about such special opportunities for our families.

    Sounds like you had a fab time! It’s nice that you are able to attend the events in London, that it isn’t too far for you to get here. Much of these things do seem to be London specific, which is a shame for bloggers based elsewhere.

    I live in London, and do occasionally get invited to events, but I can hardly ever go as they are during normal office hours and I work full time… Oh well.

    I always set aside time to spend with the older two we call them “dates” it’s important to try and spend a bit of quality time with one. Looks like you too had great fun and I agree Cheeky Cow cheese is lush!
