Happy New Year!
The Christmas tree and decorations have gone away into the loft, the house looks bare and lacks light and sparkle. We are back to school and work tomorrow the holidays are over. We did visit London last week on Tuesday with Ali and had lunch in the World Food Cafe, Neals Yard. The food was vegetarian with dairyfree options for Em which she loved and enjoyed, we all found something on the menu we liked too. We wandered around the shops in the Seven Dials area. Ali spotted a shop selling some fantastic cupcakes, so we bought a pack of 5 - They tasted as good as they looked and were on a special offer. In the afternoon we walked along Regent Street. It felt as though the whole world was out with us as well. The pavements were packed and it was impossible to stop! Quite scary really. Ali was delighted when we came across the Marmite shop which was due to close on New Years Day then it will apear somewhere else around the country. We bought the girls marmite t-shirts at greatly reduced prices. We admired the lights along the streets and window displays in the stores, and fought our way into Hamleys so I could look at all the beautiful bears before heading home. Ali goes back to Uni soon and is in the midst of writing her thesis. Happy New Year! back soon. Jane x
