Bank Holiday Monday

Posted on 2014/05/26 13:30:21 (May 2014).

[Monday 26th May 2014]
Iris, a friend from our NCT course, brought her son Oliver round to play with Erika in the morning. So ensued the usual frenzied bout of cleaning which occurs immediately before receiving guests. The kids played for a while in the lounge (thus the funny pictures in Erika's play pen) whilst I made some tea. Just as I was pouring the tea I heard Iris saying "it's fine as long as you don't put milk in it" which prompted me to then swiftly march into the kitchen and tip her tea into the sink. Interesting how things which are completely culturally normal for some people are just downright weird for other people.

Recently the weather had been quite wet, and so after a bit of playing inside we all decamped to the gardens so Erika and Oliver could have a splash about in the puddles. They both seemed to thoroughly enjoy this, and both of them got thoroughly soaked in the process.

Later on in the afternoon we headed out and got the tube to Green Park. We went to an exhibition on Chiaroscuro at the Royal Academy. Not really my cup of tea to be honest. Also did a bit of shopping whilst out at some of the usual haunts - Fortnum and Mason, Whole Foods, and Rice Wine Shop.

I'm guessing we probably had Japanese food for dinner, but don't remember.
