Had to pick up James from Uni this weekend so as I had got a great hotel deal we headed off to the big smoke.
James suggested a trip to Covent Garden to soak up some Christmas spirit - Look at the size of those baubles!
Of course there is always good street entertainment in Covent Garden too and this musician was certainly a good one!
As you can see even though it was early evening there were still lots of folks about.
and this is the stunning tree!
Our faithful tour guides James and Christi
Who took us on a wander down the strand where this fabulous theatre is tucked away!
We had a wonderful meal then returned back to the hotel after a wander along the Thames which is spectacular in the dark!
Come on even in the sale you don't think I would be staying at the Savoy without a lottery win do you?? I have to say the travel lodge did us just fine, comfy bed, warm and clean it was a bargain at £12 a night!
Now all my chicks are back in the nest for the holidays - the washing mountain has appeared again but this Momma is a happy one :0)
