We’ve had the most wonderful weekend in the capital as a family. We stayed with some friends and visited the aquarium and Camden. It was a lot less stress than I imagined. Moo slept well, ate well and was happy seeing the sights. Using the potty was mostly a success, she loved their dogs (eventually) and enjoyed riding the tube.
It’s less of a nightmare than I thought it’d be using the London Underground with a pushchair. The local station had lifts, escalators are ok and with two of you any stairs are manageable. It helps that the pushchair is so light, even laden with changes of clothes and a packed lunch. Why I didn’t take the carrier I don’t know.
The aquarium was fantastic. You must book in advance as there were people outside queuing for 90 minutes, and others being turned away. Moo particularly like the jelly fish and the turtles, and finding Nemo, of course.
We’re now travelling home in the car. Moo is not amused. She’s requesting that we sing Happy Birthday to various people, and things. The most random being yoghurt and the dining room. How a child’s mind works is a mystery, but I love it.
