slotting into London life

The past week has been a busy one. Work as usual. I had a couple of full days as the almost 3yo boy has started his half-term break from nursery. All next week will be full days too. I'm already looking forward to next weekend. He's finally off his second lot of antibiotics and is in a lot better state than he has been since I moved in. Hopefully now we can actually start bonding and finding our places with each other. It's been nice to see what I've been told is his normal self and to hear him laughing. A full week with him will be good for us two I think.
I've also been connecting with people in London. I caught the bus and went to a knitting group on Thursday night which I enjoyed. It was nice though a little hard to have conversation with anyone who wasn't sitting next to me. Apparently the pub was a lot fuller than normal so the clatter of voices was louder. Friday night I met a friend from my Scotland tour and we went to the book club together that she goes to. There was about eight girls there, loads of delicious food and wine. It was a good night apart from being tired from a long day. The girls were quite lovely and some are into crafty stuff too. Saturday afternoon I went to Camden Markets which were huge and packed and lots of great stuff you can buy. I'll definitely have to go back. Probably more than once as a few hours just isn't enough to see it all. I bought a lovely blue hemp skirt and was tempted by loads more. Probably a good thing I didn't have cash on me. I did buy a mini London book map though as I keep going to places that are just off the folded map I have.
Today I'm relaxing as the coming week will be another busy one. But for now, I'm off to see if I can find some sneakers that don't have holes where they shouldn't. I should soak in a little sunshine too as this week's predicted to be wet and cool.

Good on you for getting out there and involved!! Can be hard and feel awkward at first, but I hope you make some awesome friends that you can quickly relax and be yourself with! xo
