Sheffield Wednesday 5 Norwich 1
So we are London bound this weekend. It seems so strange doing the journey we used to make so many times at the weekend to Norfolk backwards.
We are staying with more inlaws this weekend. When our eldest had chicken pox we promised we would take her to see her cousins when she got better, so here we are chicken pox free and ready to play.
Our baby has almost cut her top teeth so she's still not sleeping great at nightime. Therefore we had a broken nights sleep and I thought she had woken her sister and cousins up at 6 but luckily even if she did they did not come into our room and I was able to convince our baby to go back to sleep.
We ended up having a lovely lie in until 9 and then went downstairs to homemade blueberry pancakes. I was only slightly disappointed to learn that one of reasons the girls hadn't woken us up was because they watched the live action Cinderella on Netflix, which I really want to see. Maybe I'll get to see it tomorrow.
After we all got dressed and ready we went to Clissold park. Islington knows how to do playgrounds, our eldest loved it and I wasn't sure how we were going to get her to leave until her cousin mentioned looking at the animals. They have a herd of dear in the park.
One of the things our eldest has missed most about living in Norfolk is getting a bus. So after lunch we got a bus into Upper st we got off at The Green and walked back through to Canonbury. It was nice to see what was the same and what had changed since we left the area 3 years ago. We went for a drink in the Alwyne Castle and then we took our eldest to the playground in Highbury Fields. Which is even better than the Clissold park one.
For tea we went to Dear Pizza which used to be Stringray one of our favourite restaurants. The girls loved it. It's been a really nice trip down memory lane today but I'm not sure I could live here with children all the time. I am already a custom to Norfolk slightly slower pace of life.
