The life and times of Sophia Cook and the Cookie's of Cook

Outside, the perfect tonic !

I came to Oxford Street on a Saturday to repair my smashed laptop. The parts weren’t available, all that way (south to central London with the tank like double pram)to be given a telephone number to call...

You can imagine my frustration levels, but there’s no time to bottle up that disappointment, so decided to walk it out in Hyde Park with the children for their very first visit. It’s amazing how being outside can help change mood and perspective. We waddled beside baby geese, ran through leaves, with me mostly trying to keep up. I realised that it’s unlikely I would have thought to do this on a chilly Saturday travelling up town along with the rest of London (it was so busy!) But rambling outside for a few hours with my two children, reminded me that being outside in one of your favourite parks with my loves is the perfect tonic to a day. I was exactly where I needed to be - outside! Perfect track too!

(Laptop still cracked can’t do anything until Monday!)
