London, Were-Rabbits, and Pea Soup…

… in that order: I went down to London on Saturday to meet up with some fellow Essex graduates. Philippa and I travelled down on the train with Simon, Matthew, Sarah and Jon. The first thing we did was go to Hamley’s and have a look round all the toys – that was great fun! Unfortunately, it means that I now really want to play with Hornby train sets. I used to have one when I was younger, although I think it was more my dad’s than mine…

After lunch Andy B joined us and we went to the National Portrait Gallery, and the Tate Modern. I was quite impressed with the Tate Modern – the building, that is! I really like what they’ve done with the old power station. In the evening, Naomi and Ranald joined us and we went for dinner at Yates in Leicester Square. Then, most people went off to watch “The Woman in White” – as I’m not massively rich at the moment, Phil and I headed off back to Colchester. It was a good day out though!

Yesterday, Phil and I went to Fordham in the morning, and then went to the rectory for lunch. In the evening, we went to see “Wallace and Gromit in the Curse of the Were-Rabbit” at the cinema. It was absolutely brilliant! I would thoroughly recommend anyone to go and see it, especially if you’ve been a fan of the shorter episodes (A Grand Day Out, The Wrong Trousers, A Close Shave).

Anyway. This morning, there was a thick fog outside. Probably the thickest fog I’ve had to drive through! You could hardly see anything! Although, I don’t know where the expression “pea soup” fog comes from – it didn’t look anything like pea soup! It did look pretty thick though – very low visibility. First time I’ve ever had to use fog lights!

That’s all folks 🙂
