Oh London, you are so magnificent at Christmas, I'm so glad I got to spend a few days visiting this year.
How does it do it? So twinkling and special that you almost forget about the tourists blocking your path as they choose which way to go, and the men in suits who think they are more important than anyone barging into you- HOW DO YOU IT DO IT, BEAUTIFUL CITY?!
The rest of the weekend was awash with squeezing into the shops among the throngs of people in search of the perfect gifts. A number were ticked off our list, but there's still a fair few to go. I'm usually so much more organised than this. I'm trying not to think about it too much; people will get something, I just need to brave the shops one more time.....maybe 2....3.
Monday was all about catching up with friends over cake (yes, it was a very foodie weekend, which I'm think is never a bad thing, even if my jeans say differently!) and catching the train back to sleepy Devon.
