1 hour delay due to inclement weather.
13.5 hours on a full flight.
1 hour to clear customs.
15 minutes from the airport to Paddington Station.
6 hours hanging out with 2 grumpy, tired kids, 1 especially prone to hissy fits.
6 hours behind in local time and severely jetlagged.
2 chirpy birds up and awake, tinkering around our AirBnB apartment at 4 in the morning, local time.
My jetlagged babies woke up at 1am, 3am and then 4am for good, London time, and now they are doing this in the quiet of the morning . The korkor has no problem sleeping through alone in the living room though 🤣 . #kaosgotravelling #kaofamilytravels #londonwithkids #kaokids #siblingfun #sibling❤️ #finallyvacay
1 superbly supportive and strong spouse, tirelessly making things happen, like breakfast at 5am with only 5 hours of sleep.
1 sensible child (which makes me feel very strongly that from age 8 onwards is the age to bring any child on a long trip) who has been channel grazing across 4 British home shopping channels all morning. Hurhurhur.
We are here in London, in awesome midsummer weather where the sun rises at 5am and sets at 9pm and where the Kao kids can get their fix of rolling hills and vast expanse of spaciousness and rich culture.
Where it’s also the much needed time I need to reconnect with the family and be fully present.
Hopefully, we will be returning with 5 hearts full.
