Jubilation

Today marks the end of the Jubilee celebration. We went in to central London on Saturday to do a little sight-seeing and catch the Damien Hirst exhibition at the Tate Modern. It started out rainy, but turned into a deliciously sunny day before the rain came back in the evening.

The Flying Scotsman came along with us, though we didn’t get to take as many pictures of him as he wanted, because my gorgeous union jack shoes from one of my very favorite shoe stores, busted open a healing blister on my heel, that is now the size of Texas.

So, that led to a lot of limping, almost some tears and a trip to TopShop for a pair of flip-flops courtesy of Mr. Michie.

After that we headed to The Diner for dinner and a beer and spent a good bit of the evening in there, eating, drinking, dancing and chatting. The 80’s tunes were just pumping Saturday night, so that made for a wonderful atmosphere.

We did manage to take a few pictures of the day and here they are:

Candyland

We are on Christmas break now and ready to enjoy the holidays. Today, The Flying Scotsman took me on a date to a Winter Wonderland.

We walked through rows of little chalets blanketed in lights and greenery. The smell of hot chocolate and fresh doughnuts and gingerbread filled the air.

We came to a little Candyland village and decided to walk through. It was so much fun. Foxy found his favorite: sparkling watermelon slices. I ate gummy bears and vanilla marshmallow milkshakes.

My wee Scotsman played Christmas music for us on his bagpipe while we strolled along. It was a lovely day!
