|This monkey might look grumpy and you might think he doesn't like the snow|
but he's just grumpy because I'm taking a photo and keeping him from his donut.
We wandered back to London Bridge with the snow freezing into our faces but utterly delighted because it was snowing so hard that it was almost a white out - you couldn't see Tower Bridge to the East. Snow! So much snow!
Then off to Trafalgar Square and a coffee (and mini rhubarb danish) at Notes, which is new and bright and lovely and one of my favorite spots in the centre. We sat at the benches at the back and C explained the Pink Panther movie that was on but silenced and we laughed and waited out the snow, which temporarily turned to rain.
|I like the lights at Notes. Also I have discovered Hipstamatic.|
Now my photos have vintage flair!
We stood in the cold, trying to decide which way to go, together or apart. I asked if C was hungry. He was. So we went to Dishoom for chai and lovely bits of comforting Indian food.
Chris went his way to buy me Christmas presents.

I wandered through Long Acre and heard a magnificient gospel choir in front of the Covent Garden Floral Academy. I shopped and then got on a bus heading home. I got off the bus and went to Redchurch Street because I had read on Twitter about a little pannettone pop up shop and that seemed like an excellent plan. I went in, tasted, bought, went back to buy a small slice so C and I could have a snack when we got home.
Then home and a quiet evening in with salmon, salsa verde and sweet potato wedges. Oh and we've some left over ice wine so we'll be eating that over ice cream while we watch a movie tonight.
