Stories I loved this week.
It’s Boxing Day! Are you out braving the sales or are you at home with friends and family eating bubble and squeak and relaxing? We’re headed to my in-laws today for more turkey and Christmas pudding and very excited toddlers running around.
Then it’s a full week off with family time in London, full of day trips, walking and fun. I’m excited. I’m always amazed at how many steps I manage to tot up just running around London with my two guys, especially since little J wants to walk everywhere now – those little legs can move. Bonus: he polishes off everything we put in front of him for dinner and sleeps very, very deeply on those evenings.
