it’s the most wonderful time of the year…Posted: December 2, 2006
The cutest nativity display in the cutest shop in the world (Cath Kidston).
Everyone was in such a great mood today…
… and everyone was so cute!
Insert your favourite quote here:

Christmas sweeties from the Covent Garden Market,
nothing better to prepare you for the chocolate marathon in a few weeks time. ;-)
Lunch time was busy in Covent Garden…
Couples were getting all sweet and romantic, too…
Trust me he was flirting, but badly. :-D
She was very glamourous, and standing in a very glamorous light.
Speaking of glamorous, if anyone wants to put a good word in for me to Santa…
Aren't they gorgeous?!
It's quite amazing that you can still eat outside, if you want to, in December.
He was the only one however, and really struggling to get the service in this restaurant.
I didn't have the lens for the optimal shot of this.
However I found the scene very amusing.
And that bar must have changed names and owners more often than I change my clothes! :-D
Lots of people were choosing to "eat out" today actually…
The scariest mime in London! :-D
I just loved their reflection…
And now for the obligatory photos of people lost in London:
(I know I seem to spot a lot of them these days…)
In the end of the afternoon I was walking home, but decided to pop in to the Somerset House. It hosts an ice rink every winter for anyone daring enough to try skating. I find British people on skates amusing. Coming from a country where everyone learns to skate at a very young age since moving to London it has provided me the biggest belly laughs ever. One year I went ice skating with friends to the ice rink at Bayswater in West London. There was a group of young adults there, including a 6'4" big black guy. He was going around the rink holding to his dear life to the railings and shouting "Man is made to walk! Man is made to walk!" :-D Somerset House didn't fail me this afternoon either:
Poor little soldier! :-D
He did really well, regardless of all the wet patches on his trousers from falling.
It has been unseasonally warm the past few weeks and the ice rinks have actually had to close due to melting.
I'm glad the Somerset House was open today though it was quite soggy.
This scene really puts a smile on my face.
Hope you're having a lovely weekend!
