Snowy Sunday and central London shopping

Alright guys, I gotta make this quick, because when we leave the house in two hours, we're gone for the day and we all know this isn't going to happen at 9 this evening (notably since that's when I plan to go to bed). I need a run at some solid sleep if I have a hope of kicking this cold.

But we're in luck, because IT'S SNOWING! I've been listening to it precipitate outside all morning as I half-slept, but assumed it was raining, which would've been the worst because we'd have to carry an umbrella and that's the last thing you want to do in central London, where a million people are crammed into an inch of sidewalk with their own, all the spokes and edges bumping and jostling and snagging on each other. It's a terrific way to lose an eye. Then we opened the bedroom curtain and lo and behold:


People in Scotland will laugh at the quantity, but it's been years since we've had a dusting like this that actually stuck. And it's still coming down! What a dream.

Our plans today involve lunch at Chick'n Sours to try their Christmas burger - which was my favourite one last year - followed by some Christmas shopping in Covent Garden (I know, it's like we hate ourselves), and then we're meeting an old friend from SF, who happens to be in town, for dinner (little does he know, but I booked us into a place that has another Christmas burger). 

Time to get dressed and head out - hope your day is full of joy and charm!

Big hugs,
