Since moving here last summer I've found it quite hard to make other mummy friends, mostly because Emilia & Eduardo aren't at school yet and I don't leave the house that often (though I'm making more of an effort now!). I've also never really been the mum & baby/toddler group kind of person and although a lot of people have recommended that I do that sort of thing it's just not something I'm interested in. I did meet a lovely mum at our local playground a few months ago and we recently discovered we go to the same nail salon AND gym. She has an almost 2 year old little girl called Lily so we decided to meet up for a playdate! Luckily she knows all the best places for children and recommended this amazing farm shop/café with an outdoor play area for the kids. They had the most DELICIOUS scones and even though it was only 10:30 in the morning I couldn't pass these up...clotted cream is my weakness!!
Emilia with her new "best friend" Lily whom she's only met twice in her life but insists that they are besties...so cute, ha ha ha! These two had a blast together though unfortunately it wouldn't stop raining so they didn't get a chance to make use of the play area or sandpit outside and poor Eduardo was a bit upset to be confined to his highchair...hopefully next time will be better weather! Emilia's Snoopy jumper that she's wearing here is from Zara, her grey skinny jeans are H&M and her wellies are from Jojo Maman Bébé. We had such a lovely day despite the weather - it's really nice to find friends when you move to a new place, even if it did almost take me a year!!
This is what I wore yesterday...all from Whistles! I love navy and stripes so this outfit is basically my dream, ha ha! The jumper is a lightweight knit with zips at the sides and the trousers are quite high-waisted cropped ones that are a nice thick material but unfortunately attract all kinds of fluff and hair. You know the kind...it's a love/hate relationship!
And here are my two babies looking far too grown up for my liking! :( They are so sweet together. Emilia took Eduardo by the hand and they did almost a full walk around her room! He is so close to walking on his own but not quite there yet. Eduardo's jumper is from H&M (this is one of my favourites of his...it's a gorgeous soft quilted cotton) and his leggings are Zara Baby.
Hope you're all having a great week! I can't believe it's already May...where does the time go?!
