We had fun in London, all went swimmingly. After a nice, very sunny comfortable journey, we got there in a little over 2 hours. Lunch time to be precise. Miss. Poppins especially loved the fact that our train travelled at 125mph. Here she is arriving in the capital.
After a little lunch sitting on a bench in the middle of Leicester Square, watching the world go by, we went to their casting. They were called in to the director's room with a small group of children and were in for maybe 20 minutes. I have to say I was quite a nervous Mummy waiting outside, Miss. Poppins would be fine but Master Poppins, well that was a different kettle of fish ;0) I was sitting there waiting for him to be thrown out for bad/rude behaviour ;0) As it was he was fine, Miss. Poppins said all the children thought he was very funny, he was by far the littlest there and the director when he came out was patting him on the head and saying to me " My, my you have a little character there don't you " ;0)
I know it is not everyone's cup of tea the modelling/commercial thing, hence I don't talk about it too much in RL. But, I have to say for social, confidence, fun and occasionally a little money for their piggy bank reasons, I have never looked back at signing my children to one of the top agencies for children in the country. We are all very grounded about it and have fun, we get out and about and as soon as one of my children does not enjoy, then is the time in my opinion to have a re think.
So after their little casting we went for a mooch.
We went here for a little culture. We walked past some lovely shops on Regent Street that I would so loved to have gone in, here and here but with two little ones on my hands, I wouldn't have felt comfortable dragging them round. Though of course it was perfectly alright for them to drag me around here. They were both wonderfully behaved, very good walkers, we walked from Leicester Square to Regent Street and back again, they deserved a little treat didn't they. Though the treat Master Poppins wanted was a little too big to fit in our bag.
And then a relaxing journey back home again, where we all had a little snooze and, almost, we arrived back in time for tea ;0)
I received a pretty little parcel from lovely Beki Beki had wanted to send me a little fabric for my kitchen project and also popped in the most delightful Romantic Country Kitchens magazine, sweet flowers for crafting, book and music papers for crafting and a beautiful homemade card. The fabric is a lovely sweet polka dot.
I was especially touched that Beki incorporated my name in her handmade card.
Thank you so much Beki, a wonderful array of pretties there for me to play with.
Thank you too, as I have found out I have won Kelly's special and wonderful Happy Monday giveaway. Thanks Kelly. What a fantastic giveaway I have won.
Thank you so much again for all your wonderful and very special comments on my post here I have some very good news, with your invaluable help and advice from the comments that were left, I wrote my
1 2 alright 3 pages of correspondence with the council, stating why I wanted my son to attend the same primary school as my daughter and awaited an appeal date. Well phew, I had a call yesterday explaining he now has a place at my local village school, where Miss. Poppins goes and I no longer have to go to appeal. THANK YOU, you know you really helped me out on that one :0)
