Monday 12th January...Further Update.


CORNISH SUNSET SUMMER 2014



I'm hoping to get back blogging here this coming Spring.
At the moment I'm undergoing my annual hospital tests to make sure if  I'm still all clear of any problems.  I'm also trying to sort out lots of technical problems on this fairly new computer. Looks like it's going to need a factory reset after recently falling victim to an online scam.  So hopefully  I'll be back here for the next blogging season. Yep, we do seasons here, it prevents burn out. But I would like to try something new when I get back here but I think it's going to take a bit of courage. I guess I'll just have to wait and see how I feel in the coming Spring.

Hampstead Heath on a frosty Tuesday morning yesterday
while out and about testing my new camera.

So last weekend we managed to get out and about around London's West End
checking out the lights and festive attractions. Not always a good idea on
the final Saturday just before Christmas. You've heard of Black Friday,
well I think they call this one Panic Saturday.
But it was fun getting back to the Somerset House Ice Skating Rink.
I hadn't been there since before the distractions of the last few years.
After one of the skating sessions the ice was cleared and the ice rink
stewards brought out a young couple, and to the delight of the crowd
a marriage proposal was carried out.
I wonder if they'd dare allow a gay marriage proposal.

Will she, wont she!

London... The River Thames looking towards The London Eye
and Big Ben.

The London Eye Wheel.


The front of The Royal Festival Hall on The South Bank.

This must be one of London's hidden festive gems. It's a
giant illuminated wreath that covers nearly four floors of
a building just behind Tottenham Court Road.

My, what big balls! We found these gigantic baubles over at
Covent Garden.

We actually headed over to Covent Garden after hearing that there
would be some real reindeers there. But we couldn't find them.
All we found were these reindeers made out of Lego bricks.

This is the front of the Dominion Theatre in Tottenham Court
Road. They're currently showing a production of that Irving
Berlin seasonal classic White Christmas.
I was actually anticipating a much bigger and bolder light
show at the front of the theatre.
The show before it 'Queen... We Will Rock You' had just
about the biggest theatre light show and display in the
whole of the West End so I guess I was expecting
something a bit better than this in the above picture.

Oxford Street lights near Bond Street.

Looking very much like last year is the front of Selfridges
Store.

Also no change in Regent Street. They went for the same
lights that they used last year. They were also doing a big
promotion for the new 'Night At The Museum' film.

This year I thought I'd make another Christmas cake, well not actually bake
one but just cover one with marzipan and icing. The cake I had bought ready
made.

Looks tempting to have it as it is without all the added sugar of the icing.

The cake now covered with a layer of marzipan and icing.

The cake after I added a few decorations. The little house I made using a small
block of marzipan and a bit of icing for the roof.

All nicely finished and ready for Christmas Day. Hang on a minute, there
could be a Christmas card here!

CHRISTMAS AT HOME.

This year I set up the Christmas snow display using the full sweep of the corner
sideboard drawers rather than squashing it all up in the confined space of the
water feature.

Ah, it's that naughty Julian again. Or is it Evan as he sometimes
likes to be known.
