Last night we went ice skating at the Natural History Museum in Kensington which was SO PRETTY. But also insanely busy. Jenny likened it to walking down Oxford Street in ice skates.
And then today I went and met up with dear Katie O’Brien, a childhood friend who has grown to be much taller than I. It was lovely seeing her! I met her at Covent Garden, which was completely packed, and madness. I suddenly realised where all of my London memories are from having been to Covent Garden today! We visited the Dr Marten shop which is one of the most distinct places in my mind (the Doc Martens aren’t as cool as I remember though), and I tried to take lots of photos, but I had my new lense in, which I’ve discovered isn’t very good at taking photos of distances. I will get there though!
Then we wandered down Fleet Street to Trafalgar Square and the National Gallery (I saw paintings by Van Gogh, and Seurat’s, and Rembrandts, Da Vinci’s, dozens of paintings we studied at school!! I’m definitely going back when it’s quieter…. and it’s free!)
BUT! As we approached Trafalgar Square we started seeing a few Santas about the place. And then!!
A Santa Flash mob. YAY!
