recently photographed chocolate bear

Go to Walker for a very nice lunch with Ben, then (having forgotten my Oyster card and caught in freezing rain without an umbrella) go home via the bank (where I pay in a cheque). Cup of tea with recently photographed chocolate bear. Which is delicious.

Then I go out to get my last Christmas presents. The rain turns to snow, so despite having an umbrella now, it doesn’t do me a hell of a lot of good. Local wine merchant, then Tate Modern, then home. Wearing the wrong shoes – the soles have become so worn out that I’m sliding all over the place. In the end I only fall over once.

Anyway, collect and deliver final presents. Pack. Get pizza for dinner. Open presents. Watch some TV. Ready to go, I guess. Virtually ready…
