It's all change here at Avery Row! Over the summer we've been working away with the goal of launching some wonderful new products in time for the new season. Keep watching, we'll be giving some sneak peeks on social media and our blog over the coming weeks.
For me personally, this September is a funny one. Not for 20+ years has September meant 'back to school' but now my little baby is taking her first steps in to the big wide world and embarking on this wonderful new phase of life. I am excited for her, and she seems quite happy about the idea too. She's not going to bed cuddling her school bag like some of her friends, but she's not dreading it. I guess I should be happy with that.
We've had a fabulous summer and spent lots of time cramming things in before we're in a school routine forever (well at least 12 years...) including visiting every playground in West London, lots of picnics, a couple of very good outdoor theatre productions, swimming in (slightly suspect looking) outdoor pools e.g Ravenscourt Park, pond dipping at the Wetlands Centre, zorbing at Hobbledown Farm...the list goes on.
And even though our British summer redeemed itself towards the end, now it's time to settle in to Autumn. Crunchy leaves, conkers, halloween. We can't wait!
In addition to changes in our household, Fiona is managing spectacularly with a huge bump in the final weeks of pregnancy. Her world about to change forever!
