Oh so sad to feel fall is here. It is like it was never here with this crazy London weather. Last year was not like this as I clearly remember calling the landlord and asking how to turn on the air conditioning since it was so hot & humid. He proceeded to tell me it’s not common for London flats to have a/c since it is only hot a handful of days and to just open the windows (oh so true!). Another thing not common to have are screens on the windows – not a big bug/mosquito problem here! 👍🏻
Anyhow, when I think of fall, I think of apples (although I haven’t gotten the chance to go apple picking). Now, throw in a 3 year old toddler and I’m thinking crafts and food. I love looking at Pinterest for ideas, but I do try to restrict the time I spend on there as my hubs keeps relaying I should be sleeping when the newborn is.
I found this amazing blogger named Kimberly and love her website with both crafts and recipes. She had exactly what I was looking for: apple crafts. I can’t wait to try some with my little on some of the rainy weekends to come.
OK, OK – it’s time to talk rain gear since we live in London. I couldn’t be happier with what we have for our first little. We went with Hatley since it’s popular in London with its stylish prints and terry cloth lining inside and of course I found an apple print. Did you know they’re based in Canada and ship worldwide? Now, time to find something for mama! Any favorite brands you have?
