A lot on today - we bought a car, the budget (thankfully nothing bad for me) and also it was Girl's Day in Japan.
Boundary Stones
Thursday 4th March 2021
In the interest of trying to make my walks to Hampstead Heath a bit different, today I went looking for the boundary stones I'd seen marked on the Ordnance Survey map.
Small Beer
Friday 5th March 2021
Tried "small beer" this evening. Thought it was quite good.

Brent Cross and Environs
Saturday 13th March 2021
Erika's Japanese school was back to having lessons in person today, so we drove her there in the car, and Chie and I hung around in the area until pick up time. It was a bit dull. Later on I headed to the heath.
Sunday 14th March 2021
Not much to report. Tulips started flowering in the garden.
Monday 15th March 2021
My birthday today. Took the afternoon off work, went for a walk to the heath, then when I got back had black forest gateau with the girls, and in the evening started building the Lego Harry Potter Hogwarts Clock Tower with Erika.

Took the afternoon off work and walked down to Lincoln's Inn Fields to meet Andrew.
Saturday 20th March 2021
Made a den for Erika in the lounge with one of my tarps.

Just one picture, checking on the state of the flowers in the garden at lunchtime.

Wine Deliveries

A couple of wine deliveries today - a mixed case of ESW from Waitrose wine, and a bottle of Vacqueryas from Tom the wine merchant.
To Bermondsey and Back Again
Friday 26th March 2021
My company had another global day off today, under normal circumstances I would have liked to go for a walk in the countryside, but frustratingly that relaxation of the ridiculous rules wouldn't come until the following Monday. So instead I did a long walk in London - all the way to the Angel in Bermondsey, about a 15 mile round trip in total.
Saturday 27th March 2021
Erika had her friend (who we're in a "childcare bubble" with) over for an extended playdate / sleepover today. I went off to the heath for a bit in the afternoon.
Sunday 28th March 2021
Checked up on the state of the garden in the morning. Walked down to Regents Park in the afternoon to see the cherry blossoms.
Sunny Heath
Tuesday 30th March 2021
Lovely warm spring day today, and with the easing of the stupid restrictions the day before, the heath was joyously full of people enjoying the weather this afternoon.
