More beautiful flowers – OOTN: Girls Night Out – Remembering Daddy (24.05) – Visiting Daddy at the Burial Ground – Beautiful flowers from Ashley – Alfie at Cha Char Chimps – Coffee & cake at ShortCafe – Today Alfie is 8 months – Walk around Stoke Bruerne – Only 93 films to go... – Tale as Old as Time Afternoon Tea at Town House, The Kensington

A lot of this update actually featured on the blog over the past month but first an apology (again) for the lack of content last week – both Alfie and I have been poorly, which hasn’t been fun and has involved a lot of time at home. It’s not been so bad as the weather has been largely rubbish, but not being able to go to group or socialise has been the worst! As a lot of my readers/followers will know, May is my least favourite month, so I spent a lot of it grumpy or miserable.

One highlight was that I went to Town House at The Kensington for their Beauty & the Beast-inspired afternoon tea: Tale as Old as Time. It was one of my birthday presents from Ash and was definitely worth the wait. We made an afternoon of it in the end, going to Lego Shop and M&M World, before walking through Green Park.

In my last update, I mentioned that Alfie was crawling – and now there’s no stopping him! Well, now he’s standing up! He loves to hold onto anything (the sofa, the TV cabinet, my leg, the shower...) and I’m adamant it won’t be long before he’s actually walking – especially as he can furniture cruise! I cannot believe he’s coming up to nine months and we’ve already booked our appointment with the health visitor.

We’ve done loads more exploring of the local area – and travelled slightly further out too! It’s amazing how many scenic walks, views and lovely places are in close proximity to us... you wouldn’t really think it, when you think of MK. We drove to Stoke Bruerne for a walk along the canal and a pub lunch; walked around Furzton Lake; and went back to Willen Lake (which is always busy but such a great spot). It’ll be so much better when Alfie is bigger and walk around for himself – and more importantly, stay awake to see the ducks and geese!

And of course, May 24th marked the day that my dad passed away; you may have seen my From the Archive Friday post on Facebook! We travelled back to Essex on the Sunday before, to take some flowers to the Burial Ground and in true Alfie style, as soon as we sat him on the lawn, he face planted the plot! We then went to my mum’s for a barbecue, which my brother cooked. It was so lovely to see him and for him to see how Alfie is developing – it’s just not the same on Snapchat or Instagram! On the actual day (Thursday), my mum came up to see us – unfortunately, Alfie had been poorly at this point. We had a chilled afternoon and a nice lunch at home. Having Alfie definitely took my mind off it, though. But I did get some gorgeous flowers: from Ashley earlier in the month and from my lovely friend Vicky on the day.

What have you been up to lately?

Love, Lucy xx
