New Years and day one, 2008

Bridget, Keryn and I had a quiet New Years at home watching the terrible coverage of the London New Years fireworks. Patricia and Sam braved the crowds and weather to be in London for the show, and even managed to escape London in reasonable time. Earlier in the day we had all gone in to London to potter around and visit a few stores. Bridget, Keryn and I went to Covent Garden for lunch and had good falafels and cookies.

Today we had a lazy morning and then a drive into London to visit the markets at Camden. Thankfully the markets were open, though they were about as devoid of people as I’ve ever seen. We wandered around and looked at a number of stalls, Patricia and Bridget getting a very late lunch along the way.

It got dark and started to rain as we left. Unfortunately the sat-nav doesn’t take into account the ending of football matches, the departure of fans from the Arsenal v West Ham match slowing our homeward journey by 45 minutes or so. Patricia and Bridget were asleep for most of the trip.
