Last weekend we woke up feeling a bit bored and stuck for ideas of where to go. We always do the same old things. So we did a bit of googling and found a little craft beer festival up in London at Alexandra Palace. So we just jumped in the car and went! It was FUN!
Problem with spontaneous adventures: you don’t pack properly. So we forgot baby wipes and any form of drink. Whoops. I had to spend a fortune on posh festival drinks and the kids looked like little chimney sweeps by the end of the day. I was getting some funny looks from the posh London mamas, but the grubby little things had a blast so it was all good.
We had a few days to ourselves this week too which has been so nice. I missed the kids (honest – just look at the pic below, I’m gutted), but just being able to go for a walk and chill out with a beer without constantly having to think about snacks, sun cream and where the nearest loo is was bloody bliss.
