Weekly Stills #4

Hello everyone, I hope that you have all had a good week. I have been away again, and those of you that know me through Facebook will have seen that I celebrated my Wedding Anniversary in London over the weekend. The Hotel organised a little surprise in our room for our arrival:
It was such a nice surprise for me anyway, and not the only surprise that I had that weekend. My OH had also spoken to the restaurant, who presented my dessert on a special plate!

We had a jam packed weekend, visiting St. Paul's Cathedral, somewhere we have tried to visit several times, missing the opportunity, due to a busy schedule in the cathedral.

En route to another part of London, we stumbled across a bronze statue dedicated to the Jewish children who came here during the war, it captured my imagination:
On Saturday, we went to Spitalfields Market, a really bustling area, full of lively stalls and lots of great gift ideas. We spent several hours wandering through the market and looking at the perimeter shops, grabbing some lunch along the way:
We then headed to Winter Wonderland at Hyde Park, a huge German style market with an ice skating rink and all sorts of Christmas related things going on. It was very busy, and sadly, we did not have time to even see a fraction of what was on offer:

We headed off to our main destination of the evening. We had to walk, as the tubes were so congested, and took lots of photographs along the way:

We finally made it to the theatre to see a performance of 'Dance Till Dawn' by Vincent Simone and Flavia Cacace who you might know from 'Strictly Come Dancing'. The Show was fabulous, fantastic dancing, beautiful music, and brilliant costumes.
It's a grey November day here, but at least it's not raining. I've had a wander around the garden, and along the street where we live, (not that you can see our house as we are tucked away).

It's very quiet in my village, apart from the occasional tractor!

This coming week we will be visiting some Christmas Markets, and as we head into December, our thoughts will be turning towards Christmas preparations. I tick another Birthday off the list, and have a couple of meals to look forward to celebrating the event. So, I will be back next week hopefully older and a little wiser!

Thanks for stopping by,

Looks like you had a wonderful weekend Judith, Markets, Meals and the theatre. I saw Midnight Tango with Vincent and Flavia a couple of years ago, that was an amazing show, so I'm sure that this one was too.

I love seeing what you've been up to & I can imagine there was quite a contrast of experiences during our week from the bustle of London & the markets to the lovely stillness of your village. Your special anniversary surprises are lovely memories to cherish marking the occasion.
