Over the years we’ve taken the kids to the science museum London. They enjoyed it as younger kids but didn’t understand much then.
Since the kids got a little older and started full time primary school, we haven’t taken them for a while, until it was science week at their school and they needed to submit a project. Time for a little adventure!
To keep the kids entertained on our tube ride, we picked up a tube map for them to navigate our stops. Being it was a Sunday, there were engineering works going on on the London Underground, which affected our journey.
The science museum London is a free entry museum (donations accepted and we highly recommend it), it’s easy to locate. To get there, follow the signs from South Kensington underground station, past the natural history museum on the left. The Victoria and Albert Museum on the right until you get to the end of the subway and then you turn to your left.
You will need to go through security check and then your adventures begins with locomotives and stem engines, many interesting things to see, do and discover on the ground floor,all the way to the top floor.
We went on a space tour learning interesting facts like how astronauts do number 2 in space and bring the sample back to NASA to analyse the content of their poo. Space is pretty but its poo business isn’t pretty.
Then we took the stairs all the way to explore more matters and materials. There is lift, clean toilet with baby changing facilities and a cafeteria (first floor) that sells hot and cold food. There is a gift shop on the ground floor.
Next we explored matters and materials.
By the time we had lunch and toured the second floor, we were tired. There was School the next day and I didn’t want to tire them up. So we had to go but we are coming back over the half term for part 2!
It’s a girl!
We are so happy to be having another beautiful little baby girl in 5 months time.
All my cravings and motherly instinct told me it was going to be a boy. I craved for very spicy delicious Western Nigerian meals, similar to the cravings I had in my previous pregnancy with my son. My mother also had a dream that it was going to be a boy. But as usual I was a little sceptical and didn’t go ahead to start shopping for everything blue. We wanted to get the confirmation from the 20 weeks scan. After three pregnancies, I’ve come to realise that babies sometimes have a mind of their own. Just as every child is different, so is every pregnancy.
I’ve always said to those closest to us that I don’t mind much about the gender of a baby. As long as the child and mom is healthy and both are home safely after the birth. That’s what matters to us. Besides we’ve already got one of each so we are very grateful for any additional child.
The more detailed 20 weeks scan not only should us our beautiful girls’ face but also showed us that she’s doing well.
Our daughter Victoria is happy to be having a sister she can play dress-up with.
While our son Daniel is happy to have at least one baby sister who won’t be bossing him about like his older sister who’s always playing the mummy.
Me? I’m just happy to be growing our family!
Autumn is one of the most beautiful seasons in London. It starts to get chilly and the leaves starts to fall but then you begin to see those golden brown colours come to life. Those heavy bushes making ways to see the beauty of the city more clearly.
It’s not too cold for full winter layering nor is is hot enough not to add in an extra layer of clothing.
This is perfect for a blazer jacket.
Jackets can be styled with jeans, leggings, dresses or skirts. Boots or court shoes, shoulder bag or clutch. The boots are from Next. They are thigh length but also slouches down to look like a standard length boots. I’m also wearing an over the bump black maternity leggings from Asos maternity. A T -Shirt from new look. It’s not from the maternity section, just sized up and knotted by the side.
This navy blue blazer is from Ralph Lauren and I’m surprisingly wearing a six 6. I had it a long time ago, pre pregnancy.
The blazer obviously won’t be able to button up but I got my scarf in my bag for added warmth.
