  • Day2


    October 26, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 9 °C

    Ein spannender Tag!
    Wir sind morgens aufgestanden mit dem Plan, früh zum London Eye zu gehen. Da man jedoch noch nicht mal 100m sehen konnte durch sehr starken Nebel, haben wir beschlossen dies zu verschieben. Wir sind also ein bisschen durch London geschlendert und haben uns (den leider im Umbau befindenden) Big Ben etc. angeguckt. Gegen Mittag haben wir uns getrennt, Fabian ist mit Theresa essen gegangen, ich wollte mit Finja Brunchen gehen. „Wollte“, weil wir dann die ganze Zeit in Charity Shops gegangen sind, von denen es hier zu meiner Freude sehr viele gibt. Ich habe drei wundervolle Schnäppchen machen können, und was gutes für die Umwelt!
    Ich hab mich dann wieder mit Fabian getroffen, und wir sind auf die Oxford Street. An einem Make Up Store, bei dem es ein 3 für 2 Angebot gab, konnte ich natürlich auch nicht vorbeilaufen! Wir sind dann noch in einige Läden (unter anderem ein sehr eindrucksvoller Nike Store mit eigenem DJ (!)), bis wir wieder losgegangen sind. Da ich noch unbedingt zu einem weiterem Second Hand Shop gehen wollte, der aber um 18 schließ, mussten wir uns sehr beeilen auf dem Weg dorthin, und durch den Sprint hab ich nebenbei nochmal Sport für das nächste ganze Jahr gemacht :) Von da aus sind wir nachhause spaziert. Wir haben uns noch unglaublich leckere (wenn auch überteuerte) Pizzen bei Ubereats bestellt, und sind sofort müde ins Bett gefallen.
    Gelaufene Kilometer: 14,3

    October 25, 2018 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 11 °C

    Nach einem angenehmen Flug sind wir von Heathrow nach Paddington mit dem Schnellzug gefahren. Anschließend haben wir ein Uber zu unserem Airbnb genommen. Der Fahrer war total lieb und hat uns noch ein paar Tipps zu London mitgegeben. Das Airbnb gefällt uns beiden sehr gut, es ist ziemlich modern (es gibt keine Schlüssel, sondern Chips) und schick eingerichtet. Wir haben den Abend gemütlich ausklingen lassen mit ein bisschen Fernsehen im Bett 😁.
    Wir freuen uns auf morgen und alle neuen Erlebnisse.💝

    London day 4

    March 28, 2016 in the United Kingdom ⋅ 🌧 8 °C

    Today I went to the tower of London, and saw many things.

    I saw the crown jewels, the white tower which is the armory, the tower ravens which were my favourite part of the tour, the horse armor, the dungeon, and the traitors gate.

    I also saw the St Pauls Cathedral, which was an enormous church that looked 100 metres tall.

    My favourite part of today was that it is easter here and I got tones of creme eggs, which are super tasty.

    I will write tomorrow in the blog about the day, but I have finished with this one.

    London day 4/5

    March 30, 2016 in the United Kingdom ⋅ 🌙 5 °C

    Day 4

    Today I went to Westminster abbey, and there was a kids challenge book that had challenges like how many lions could you find, what animals did you see, when was Issac Newton born, and 12 others.

    I found what I belive is 130 lions, and a ton of different animals like a phoenix.
    There was alot of people with the last name "Campbell''
    Day 5

    Today I went shopping for a windcheater, and my brother Finn found a ton of emoji poop pillows,

    Sadly he didn't get any , and I didn't get the minecraft baby ocelot soft toy which looked AWSOME!!!!!!

    In the morning mum slept in until 8 o'clock, so she is just being llllllllazy!!!!!

    March 25, 2016 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 12 °C

    We have finally arrived in London.

    You can see here we are staying in South Bermondsey which is just south of Tower Bridge.

    Yesterday we saw the Tower Bridge and Tower of London.

    No videos yet but hopefully some today, also the shops are like coles, kmart, woolworthes and jb hifi combined, with 3 whole secions of a row just for coke. At the airport I found llama soft toys, and look AWSOME!!!!!!!

    Went to buckingham palace, the science museum and the piccadilli circus, wich is a round about.

    Just so people know this is for the first two days of London.

    Fail with the camera, can't insert videos, only noticed when editing the blog, and after filming a 5 minute video on the science museum, which took 4 hours to complete. Also went to Kensington palace gardens, and had Fox's party rings, which are iced biscuts. On the first day it was 5° outside, and the next day it was 15° outside.

    I will write the next blog tomorrow for me, but 4 pm in Australia.

  • Day23

    London day 3

    March 26, 2016 in the United Kingdom ⋅ 🌧 9 °C

    Today I went to the Royal Greenwich Observatory, Cutty Sark, and Hamleys toy store.

    The Cutty Sark is a famous ship that was the fastest sailing ship in England. There were plenty of shops and there was a souveneir shop where I got a London guitar pick. There also was a massive lolly shop with super sour lollies in which my opinion are more sour than war heads.

    The Royal Greenwich Observatory is an observatory on a tall hill that is famous for it's time zones. Basically there is a line on the hill that if you step over you are in a different time zone, so your pretty much time travelling. I was also lucky enough to find and take a picture of a squirrel at the Observatory, so first native animal of my trip so far.

    Hamleys was amazing because it had Hornsby model trains, mini drones, console games, and a ton of jelly beans. It took a while to get to though, but it was incredible.

    Where I am Easter is on March the 27th, so I get an early easter, yay! If you read my last blog page you will know that I can not post videos, so see you later, or on the next blog page.

    August 17, 2017 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    So Jess' flight got cancelled. She is so annoyed because as her status says - she "now has to catch a morning plane with a wide awake freaking 1 year old" it has ruined her whole plan of having him sleep for the main chunk. They are flying business so i bet others are gonna be thrilled their $8000 seats are so loud hahah.
    Got up at 9 and left the hostel 🙌🏼🙌🏼
    We went down the street to try our luck at the place advertising English breakfast.
    It would have been better luck if if was shut again, it was horrid.
    We walked to the stations with our humongous bags and caught 2 trains to the nearest station to our Bnb. We told them we would be there 12-1 and it was about 10:45 :/ so we dordled the 1.5 km to the house.
    We were still reallly early so I manned the front door while Will went to the local store to pick up nappies because Jess is going to land late.
    He came back, the dude arrived and let us in. The apartment is cute.

    And from here the day was horrendous.
    2017 is fucked, like truly fucked.

    We got word that one of Wills close mates, Wilkie, has been in a car accident and isn't going to make it.
    First came the shock, then the tears. I gave Will space.
    He spoke to Tom and Sachin. The accident was on channel 7 news.
    The Silver lining? (if there is one) is he hit a pole so no one else is injured or responsible.
    We are still waiting to hear more.
    From what we understand - he is being switched off life support tomorrow.
    I just keep thinking of his girlfriend and mum.
    His dad died last year and he is an only child.
    I can't imagine their pain right now.

    Will eventually came and found me when he was ready.
    He has organised for Helen to send flowers.

    We didn't do much for the rest of the day but we did go get dinner. Indian, it wasn't the best but it was cheap.
    We bought a bottle of moscato and played the drinking game 'higher or lower' and tried to watch a movie but couldn't figure out the tv port thing.
    Will seems ok at the moment.

    Jess and Jaxon are now on the plane on their way woo!

    I got really close to a squirrel on the walk to the house lol it had something dead it's mouth or was carrying its babies, not sure.

    The internet here doesn't work 85% of the time and today is the worst day to not be able to updated/ stay in contact with people. 😪

  • Day137


    August 18, 2017 in the United Kingdom ⋅ 🌙 15 °C

    A proper bed was most welcomed.

    Midday wake up (won't have another one for a long while lol)
    We ate breakfast and watched top gear.
    The wifi is still being dodgy.
    I had a shower and re washed my hair because even though I washed it yesterday I didn't brush it and it was a disaster.
    I had a 2 hour nap ha - I really need to buy new iron tablets.
    Will reheated the Indian and ate that. I ate the pizza he bought from the shop yesterday but he stored it in the fridge not freezer so it was wet :/ we couldn't figure our the oven so I just used the microwave.

    I cleaned the house. I swept the floor because she walking in the floor boards with bare feet I kept getting shit like dirt stuck to my foot. I also unpacked my bag.

    I am currently watching more top gear - Will has gone to the airport to collect Jess and Jaxon. Their second plane was delayed so they are arriving at 10.
    I've given Will instructions on how to get there but I'm still worried.

    I restarted the wifi at around 11 and a bunch of messages came through saying there were delays.
    At 11:30 they finally found each other and only got back to the apartment around 1ish.

    I gave them both hugs. It took a while for Jaxon to smile but eventually did.

    He keeps hitting and scratching people the little bugger.
    He likes Will so much more than me and probably still will after the 2 weeks. He is the "fun" one and I'm the disciplinarian lol.

    Bed time.

    Tom messaged before. They are looking at organ donations - Wilkie will probably have been switched off by the time we wake up. 😔
    I don't even know what to say.

  • Day139


    August 20, 2017 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☀️ 17 °C

    Vomited at 3 am. Just a little reflux one but glad to get it up so I could go to sleep or so I thought until Jaxon got up at 4:30...
    Jess graciously swapped with me so she took the couch and I went back to bed. At 7 we were all up and Jess was packing. Me and Jaxon played highly educational games of "take Harry's sock off, Harry puts it on so I'll take it off again"
    And "lights on and lights off" with a lamp 😂
    Jess helped up figure out the oven and washing machine so that's great.
    I had cereal and I shared some with Jaxon. Such a fat head.
    We walked Jess to her station and of course her train was cancelled😂😂 ....
    She has a bit of a wait until the next one.

    Her great quote from yesterday "I like that their sky looks the same as ours"....................???? hahaha

    We walked with Jaxon to Tesco - It took a while. It was shut though. It only opens at 11 which on any other day would have suited us fine haha lol

    Jaxon feel asleep on the way back to the house. 👏🏼
    So we had the hour nap with him or at least I did. Will didn't manage to get to sleep. I woke as soon as Jaxon stirred and Will went down for another 1.5 hour nap himself.

    Me and Jaxon played some HILARIOUS game - the main 2 being
    - putting a cup on his head
    - turning a lamp on and off

    He did a big poo though. I'm so use to wearing gloves it's weird not.

    I sent him In to wake Will up.
    I actually don't know what we did then, I can't remember. basically, we occupied him hahaha

    Eventually we walked to maccas because we hadn't been back to Tesco to restock on food..

    Jaxon loves chicken nuggets.
    The pram is about as good at turning as a shopping trolley 😒

    We then went to tesco and stocked up for st least a week. A lot of snack food for the fat head.

    Got home and he played for a while. He likes a ball and climbing up the couch. We have blocked the kitchen and when he finds new things, those too. Hahaha
    We fed him and put him to bed at 6 cause he was crashing. He fell asleep in 3 mins but started like flapping and shaking. I told Will and he said he always does but I double checked with Jess. It's normal, do not be concerned. 😂👍🏼

    TREVOR DOWSE ADDED ME ON FACEBOOK. What a miraculous leap forward.
    I am so proud. I wonder if he knows how to use it🤔 i have sent him some DP options because only random Nigerian don't have a DP hahah

    Sudden random thought: I wonder what Jesus' DNA looks like.

    Also Jaxon is a bed hog.

  • Day140


    August 21, 2017 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    Jaxon is the most ridiculous person to sleep with.
    He literally spent the night flapping light a bird, twitching, shaking as if he was having a fit and sleep laughing and whinging.
    No sleep for me.
    The little shit woke up at 4:30 and put his fingers up my nostril to let me know.
    I took him out to the lounge room and offered him a bottle but he wasn't keen. He settled for some biscuits.
    I put the tv on but he is not interested. I can't wait til he is haha. The noise from the tv makes the whole room feel more comfortable though.
    I don't know how're passed the time but once the sun had risen properly I took him for a walk in the stroller.
    Bless him, He is so well behaved in it.
    It was drizzling but I didn't care I needed to do something lol. I think I murdered a fair few snails and slugs until I realized they were everywhere! Then dodged them when possible. The slugs are so big. One had a hole in it but was alive??? Looked like a cigarette burn size?
    Didn't seem to bother it lol.
    There is a missing cat picture on every pole and it hurts my heart.

    We saw a fox yesterday. Random area for one.

    I walked in a straight line so I didn't get lost and turned around - I did 2 big laps before poo face fell asleep again.
    People gave me varied looks. Obviously they assumed he was mine... some where really friendly and gave big smiles and others gave judgmental glares like oh another young single mum. Will made a comment later when we were walking him together about how he felt like we were being judged. I was like oooo I feel that too!!!
    It's silly because we are most definitely old enough. Will wants a sign to let ppl know he isn't ours hahah

    I pushed the pram through some dog poo 😒

    Getting in the house with a pram holding a sleeping child really difficult. All the doors here have doorstops and close if you don't hold them so trying to make sure he didn't wake up and juggle keys and doors wasnt fun.
    He slept for an hour but stirred so often I didn't get a solid nap in.
    I woke Will at 8:30 because I was having another reflux vomit. Jaxon had a good look see lol.
    He took over and I had a 1.5 hour nap.

    I had a shower with Jaxon which was different to say the least. Hard to maneuver in such a tight space haha
    Having a bath tub would make things easier. I had to hug him tight the whole time cause he is scared of them since he got a little burned at home with Jess lol

    We went out to get iron tablets and finally got some.
    We had brunch at a coffee shop and got a 1£ muffin for Jaxon to nibble on. Uhm IT WAS DELICIOUS. Going back for sure.
    We then Walked towards milwall stadium which is next to the south station.

    He saw the same dog that was sitting on top of the caravan when we took jess - was there again. We think he likes keeping watch haha.

    We walked past/around the Milwall football stadium.
    This is such an industrial area. It's almost like slumbish except every had a good attitude. Everyone was working hard.
    The area we are staying in Is like 75% black people. Not a bad thing, merely an observation.
    We walked and walked and then walked past the WIDEST dog either of us had ever seen. It wasn't that big but omg it was like a table.
    We got to a park but Jaxon had fallen asleep again so we waited for him to wake up before we had a try on the play equipment.
    He loves slides but dislikes swings.
    It was too wet unfortunately so we didn't stay long. Great little park though.
    THEY SOLD V AT THE PETROL STATION. I was so excited about this - first place since we left home.

    Jaxon did a massive poo and it leaked into the cushion hahah
    We had sandwiches for lunch
    Entertained him then fed him dinner. He loves Indian food because of daycare. Nearly inhales his purée.

    We played with him making him walk backwards and forward to each of us for ages, then a throw/bounce/catch/fetch game before putting him down to bed.
    He wasn't as easy to get to bed today but we got there :)

    This morning (on Wills watch 😜) he fell into a chair and has a bruise under his eye forming.

    More importantly....
    note the date:
    Oh my heart.
    We have obviously hugged when he had been hurt or when I have picked him up and made him hahah but never has he approached me for a cuddle and only that.
