I’ve just entered the seventh month of maternity leave. The London I have experienced since last summer has been at most times confined to Waltham Forest: Leyton, Leytonstone, Walthamstow. I have travelled farther, but it’s certainly easier to go places that mean just a quick run back home if accidents happen. I’m sure plenty of people don’t think London is the best place to raise children, but I’m not planning on moving to the country just yet. I’m looking forward to showing my son what wonderful city he was born in.
