Central Park, The High Line, Chelsea Market, Soho (first celeb sighting; Meg Ryan waling into Dean & Deluca as Edu and I walking out. Dressed very much like Meg Ryan... baggy pants and clodhopper shoes!), 9/11 Memorial, and the Renegade Craft Fair in NYC, and a fantastic view of New York from the Standard Hotel's Boom Boom Room (above) for a friend's 40th, amongst other things.
On top of all this running around, Edu and I are expecting baby number 2! We're very excited to have a playmate for Oscar on the way, but I've also been incredible tired and that's limited a lot of what I can do in a day. In addition, we have a slight complication with the pregnancy, which has meant lots of doctor and specialist appointments, resulting in a surgery planned in two weeks. I'm a little bit anxious about it all as there is a small risk to the baby, but I'm trying to remain positive and I'm sure all will be fine. Surgery is scheduled for next week, so fingers and toes crossed, people!
Dough just down the road, and so many playgrounds for Oscar. The area is nice and quiet and calm, the trees are all beautiful and in full autumn colours. I love all the brownstones, but I'm thankful we have a ground-floor entrance place with a pram, and being preggers.
Loving so many things here; everything being in English, I've eaten my body weight in Mexican food, and have to say we've had so many great meals since we've been here. A little overwhelming the choice you have when your menu's not limited to toasties! I had grits and fired green tomatoes last night at Edu's welcome dinner. Both amazing.
Ok, back to unpacking boxes...
