It was a brilliant Bank Holiday and I can't believe it is now Wednesday already. On the Saturday I went into work not knowing that I was supposed to be on holiday. I was originally told I wasn't allowed to have that day off, so after doing an hour or so work, I then clocked out to enjoy the rest of my day.
I met up with my husband and his family who had come down to see us from Lincoln and Southampton, and spent a lovely day down in Putney, London. There are some really nice pubs down in Putney along the river, and found a few more that I didn't know existed yet I spent most of my childhood and teens down there. A lot of Putney has been redeveloped and so there are lots of places to eat and have a drink, and many are child friendly.
The Sunday once my mum had returned Henry our son, from spending the Saturday with Nanny we then took Henry to the park and then went into town where we live, had a coffee and then a bite to eat in our favourite fish and chips shop. My husband and his family went onto the wetherspoons whilst myself and Henry went back home.
It was nice to have the place to ourselves for a bit. It was so nice to hear that Leicester City FC had won the Premiership, as soon as they reached the top of the table I kept saying, I hope they win it. So pleased for them, it's so nice to see another team, instead of the normal top teams, win it. I think this sends a really positive message, which is you don't have to spend a lot of money to win the Premiership, and will open it up to other teams.
Monday we spent a lovely day in Richmond-Upon-Thames. I did a run along the river from Surbiton to Richmond, which was a long way but one of my favourite routes. It started of being a gloomy day but brightened up and was lovely as we went through the day. I met my husband, with our son and my husbands family on the green in Richmond where my son had a good run around. I managed to get a few birthday gifts for my niece who is one years old this month and found a lovely coffee shop, which so far I think does the nicest.
It was a shame that Tuesday had come round so quickly and my Inlaw's had to go home. My husband and I spent the rest of the afternoon though together with our son, which was nice and went for a walk, and then went back home to relax for the rest of the day.
Family to us is so important especially for Henry as he will realise like we all do that some family will still be here in the world and others won't so you have to make the most of the time you have, whilst you can. You never know when it will be the last time, so that is why we make the most of the time we have together and see them. I love sharing these times on my blog page, as family is part of my world and I know that there are those who don't have family and are alone, I would encourage if you do have family to see them, as there are so many who are alone and they just want someone to share some company with and know that someone does love them.
