Happy New Year!


We’re back home in London now after a marathon visit to see our families in the States last week. It was lovely to see you all!

After 3 days back in the office, we treated ourselves to Lebanese on New Years’ Eve. Then, off to fireworks by the river, listening to a live impromptu brass band concert after the ‘show’ and we finished the night by enjoying the rest of our Magnum of Champagne (thanks, Lottie!) on the steps of St. Paul’s as we waited for the congestion to subside.

We also had poppers (little exploding things that release confetti) and sparklers. Fun!

Yesterday, New Year’s Day, was a relaxing one. We lounged about all day and then ventured out for an off-westend show called ‘A Little Night Music‘. It’s hosted at the ‘Menier Chocolate Factory‘ and we were lucky to secure the LAST two tickets for the show. It’s entirely sold out until March–and for good reason. It’s EXCELLENT. Definitely one of the best shows we’ve seen since we arrived here. Truly excellent.

Though, it is a VERY small theatre. And to sell as many tickets as possible, the assigned bench seats allowances are quite small for some individuals–not necessarily the most accommodating of today’s super-size rears. Luckily, G & I haven’t torn through our massive stash of Reese cups and chocolate treats too wildly after the holidays so we sat comfortably–only minorly squashed. A couple more days of chocolates at home and I can’t promise we would have been so lucky 🙂
