Whilst travelling from Devon to Essex, we decided to spend a couple of hours exploring, and introducing the Little One to London.
Whilst wondering over the Millenium Bridge, we found evidence that pointed towards someone’s romantic intentions.

This Friday, and it being the Friday after Bonfire night, we decided to go for a drive. We called it an “adventure” to find fireworks.
