Christmas Quacking Around London

 
So if you hadn't already guessed, last Saturday was my birthday, all of 32 years old.
 
Two years ago for my 30th we went to London, saw Midnight's Pumpkin at Battersea Arts Centre, saw Matilda the Musical at the Cambridge Theatre, did Winter Wonderland and went skating at Somerset House.
 
This year we stayed in the same place (Clapham Junction Travelodge if you're interested, excellently located within a stone's throw from the station and on all the major bus routes in and out of the city) and planned to do some tourist attractions instead. I took far too many photos to fit in one post so the Royal Albert Hall, the BBC Broadcasting House tour, HMS Belfast and Churchill's War Rooms will all have to wait till the New Year.
 
Instead this'll be mainly shots of too much food, Christmas lights, large baubles and me standing on one crutch.

  1. I love the way they've done the sauce over those eggs and tomatoes- so much more exciting than straight lines :) xxx

Thank you very much for all your lovely comments; I do have every intention of replying but sometimes life with a baby gets in the way...
