Christmas Holidays 2010

On Tuesday we went to London, it was a wet and gloomy day but we had a lovely time, we visited Trafalger Square and saw the ship in a bottle on the fourth plinth which I later found out is a replica of Nelsons ship The Victory which he sailed in for the battle of Trafalger. If you click on the link (ship in a bottle above) it takes you to a website with lots of photos of the ship in sunlight and if you click here you can read up more information about the artist who made the sculpture. We went to Leicester square where almost everything was boarded up and the swiss clock had gone! still it might just have gone for a service/repair as the flag stand was still there. We went to Wong Kei's for lunch and had Won tun noodle soup and Beef chow ho fun with chilli and black bean sauce, all washed down with Jasmine Tea. After lunch we walked through China town and wandered around the shops. Later we crossed Charing Cross Road and walked up to Seven Dials. we found lots of lovely shops along the way. We took a Taxi to St Pancras station and saw a Christmas Tree made of champagne bottles. Finally we caught the tube back to Victoria Station then a train home.
On Thursday we went to Brighton and browsed the shops in the North Lanes, fabric, shoes, boots, clothes, T-shirts, fancy dress, guitars, jewellery, secondhand, modern, bags, toys, home goods, stationers, CD's & records, health foods, cafes, bars, and restaurants all catering for every taste imaginable. It was amazing and I could have spent a fortune! Tomorrow is New Years Eve, I would like to wish you all a very Happy New Year 2011 from me and the rest of the family at Crafty conundrum. Jane x
