Hello! We're back!! Alhamdulillah...we've arrived safely in London on Saturday. As much as I've enjoyed meeting family and friends and the good malaysian food, this place has started to feel like home too..home sweet home! i am glad to be back..alhamdulillah...look at Mia sleeping like an angel in her basinet on the flight..good thing i took the photo cos she did NOT sleep like an angel for very long! huhu...what a long flight that was! I was so tired i could've slept while queing for immigression check at Heathrow. oh but we got so lucky! the let us cut the Q! (UK border checks usually takes forever!) suddenly this big security guard called us forward...i think because of the kids..yahoo...i knew i had children for a reason :)
Yesterday I took Adam and Mia to Portman children's centre. I wore Mia in a wrap and held Adam's hand and then we walked there. It's about a 15mins walk, almost 30mins with Adam and his tedency to 'sightsee'. After the session, they announced a new campaign - Stroll not Roll:
Dear Parents and Carers,
We have started a new scheme to encourage you and your children to walk to Portman. Please take some time to read the display in the reception area which explains why we are doing this.
Walking is a great way to improve your health and feel good. You children will learn how to be safe on the streets. Active children are happy children.
-ask Drop-in staff for a Stroll not Roll card.
-Every time you walk to Portman ask Drop-in staff for a stamp
-Collect 5 stamps and choose one of the baby feeding gifts shown on the display.
-Colect 25 stamps and choose one of the toddler rucksacks shown on the display.
If you don't have a baby sling/carrier please tell drop in staff
Thank you for Strolling not Rolling.
The display in the reception.
They even provide slings for those who doesn't have one..
Wow i'm so surprised and happy that they're doing this.Now i won't be the odd one out, walking and wearing my kids! The people here loves using the buggy (stroller), even more than Malaysian, probably. Yay i can't wait to collect more stamps..hehe...
