Monday Morning Catch Up #7

The Greenwich Mummy | Monday Morning Catch Up

I know this was supposed to be a morning post so please accept my apologies that it’s been a bit late as I’ve been having trouble with uploading photos from my iPhone to the PC. So last week was pretty good and the weekend was a lovely chilled out one.

On Friday, 1st May we had my nephew Lils around and LO had a great time playing with him. We didn’t go out but I did take them out for a bit of fresh air which was nice for all of us. From Wednesday to Friday I have just been baking likeย crazy making all sorts of different cupcakes with different flavours; vanilla, caramel, dark chocolate, and matcha green tea. It was so therapeutic and eating them all was even more heavenly! ๐Ÿ™‚

There’s something really therapeutic about baking
Saturday

On Saturday, Lils had left us earlier in the afternoon so I took LO with me to have a good catch up with an oldย workmateย over a soya matcha latte. Yum. Then LO’s daddy and I thought about taking himย to the funfair and thought why not do it that evening as we already had plans for Sunday. ย When we got there, we only had 30 mins of rides but that was enough for us. It was ยฃ7.99 per person to get in (including LO) so that was ยฃ24 for the three of us and to be honest, that’s a lot for just 30 mins of rides.

We took LO onto the cars and on to the hot air balloons (similar to the teacup ride but it also goes up and down in the air) and that was it as it was cold and LO didn’t seem to sure about all of the other rides which seemed to big for his age. We left about 15 minutes after as there wasn’t much for us to do with LO – a bit disappointing after we had paid a lot to get in however I’m sureย it would’ve probably been much more enjoyable and fun if we had gone when the weather was warmer,ย and not in the evening.

This was LO’s favourite ride
Sunday

Today was one of my best friend’s birthday so I thought why not pay her a visit as it’s one of the days that she had free in her busy schedule. She is a pastry chef and always baking away for her clients so I thought why not buy her a beautiful cake as a present this year. I knew sheย lovedย the Chinese/Vietnamese celebration cakes from when she tried it at LO’s 1st birthday so I ordered one for her. I get the Chinese cake from a bakery in Canning Town, London from a company called City Cakes Ltd. I ordered the smallest square size (you can choose from square-, circle-, or heart-shaped) which was 8 inches and cost me a decent ยฃ28.00. This cake should give out about 10 servings – probably more if you hand out smaller slices but I am sure people would want seconds as it’s so light and fluffy and simply delicious.
