Staycation in London

Yay, a whole week to do what we want – more or less.  We just need to get through today (and apparently some thunderstorm, hopefully not when we are out in the park.… edit: instead of going to the park, we took Micro to the vet: He was bitten by another dog yesterday and, after speaking with the vet this morning, we thought it would be safer if he had a look at it. Now we are home with antibiotics and painkillers and little Micro is snoring next to me.) And now let the fun times begin.

I started writing our do-to list weeks ago – it included things like ‘clean flat before the start of the staycation’ so I had to start early. Also, I had to switch my medication last week. The patent ran out and re-applying doesn’t really work out for Pharmaceutical companies as well as applying for a new ones for new medications, so new medication it is. I still have some problems re-adjusting, but it turned out to be less bad than I anticipated (famous lasts words). In order to somehow stay on top of things I had to work with big gaps in my schedule so an early start on my to-do list was in order.

Oddly enough we thought we’d keep to an early morning start (will report next week how that worked out), Micro is currently used to getting up at 6am, so we might as well get some breakfast at the same time.

Fun stuff for next week includes finally going to the Natural History Museum, and maybe having a coffee at Fernandez and Wells afterwards (if they are fast enough, last time it took forever to get a cup of coffee). Comment of the editor: actually planning on going to Roots and Bulbs and trying their coconut coffee shake (!) 

We hope to check this place out and get our nails done.

Get the bikes fixed and come up with a plan how to install a basket for Micro (several DIY options – some more practical then others)

Do some gardening – isn’t this one of the greatest transformations you have seen? We just would need to rent a saw.

Go out for food and/or coffee – I recommend the London’s Best Coffee app, which we have frequently used and found great places we would have usually overlooked.

What are your plans for this weekend? Are you doing something nice, combining summer weather (hopefully) and fun summer activities? What ever you are doing have a great weekend!
