We’re on our way back home after 10 days in England. We’ve been staying with the in-laws. It’s been very relaxing (except for tantrums and pms) and Aiden’s enjoyed all the new environment, people and play.
Jon & I had a first night away in London on Friday. It was hard leaving, but once we were on our way it felt a lot better and probably also because of the photo updates we kept receiving.
Except the worry that Aiden would be upset that we left him (he wasn’t), the sleeping was my biggest worry and fear. He still doesn’t sleep through except the odd couple of nights since he was born. How surprised was I to hear he’d slept through the night when e were away! Woke up at 6:30.
He did the same last night, so my hope is lit that this might be the turning point. So that at least most nights are good sleeps from now on. Look forward to seeing what getting back into routines after summer and holidays will do.
London was great though! We were both worried we’d struggle to relax and enjoy and that it would be boring. But it wasn’t. We stayed in Notting hill, went for a stroll around soho and ate there. On the Saturday we walked down Portobello and High Street Kensington before heading back.
I also managed to get my hair cut and go for several runs during this holiday. Mostly to get back into a routine, I live in no illusion I’ll get awesome results with the amount of junk I’ve consumed. Is never a waste though.
Anyway, our train ride to Victoria is almost finished. Now we only have the tube to Stratford, bus to Stansted and then flight to Sweden. Uuh…
