By noon time, London began to get really busy.
Our stomachs were rumbling by the time we arrived at Chinatown for lunch.
The weather was not very good today. In fact, it was mostly wet, windy, and cold.
It was pouring down when we got to Trafalgar Square, so we spent a good few hours at the National Gallery admiring and learning about Viennese portraits at The Portrait in Vienna 1900 Exhibition.
After indulging our visual senses at the gallery, with the sky still not brightening up at all, we decided to pop into another one of our favourite haunts:
Another few happy hours spent in the bookshop made me realised how very easy-to-please Tiger and I are: just leave us in a bookshop and we can entertain ourselves very happily for a long time.
While Tiger was deeply engrossed in his reading, I was happily sipping latte (we were sitting near the cafe inside the bookshop) and reading my own choice of book which I think is quite appropriate for new year's eve. This book has given me much food for thought and I couldn't have read it at a better time.
When Tiger next looked at his watch, it was time to come home. We just felt that it was getting darker, and many people were starting to arrive in London for the New Year's Eve countdown. We didn't want to get stuck in London for the night, so we headed home before the big party started.
Now, in the warm comfort of my own home, I am waiting for the new year to arrive in a few minutes. Here's wishing everyone a very happy 2014!
