This morning we woke up to see this green woodpecker hopping around in the garden, feeding on insects (hence his muddy beak!).

Siv was supposed to be heading home to Norway for Xmas today. However, due to the 'adverse weather conditions' in the UK today, we got to Heathrow, but after a few hours it became obvious not a lot was going to happen as they shut the airport....so began the long journey home. When we did get home we saw how much snow we had in out garden, only about 3 inches, but enough to make the Country grind to a halt!

Siv met up with Lise and her friend Henny who were in town for a few days. On Saturday afternoon they went to a concert of Benjamin Britten Carols at St. Paul's Cathedral. After that, I met up with them (having just watched West Ham lose to Manchester City). We Then went to the Spaghetti House in Covent Garden, before going for a few drinks at The Crown in Seven Dials. As we walked in we noticed that everyone was dressed in Santa outfits. It turns out this was a break away group from the main SantaCon 2010! After a few drinks Lise and Henny headed back to their hotel, and Siv and I got a tube home.

A group of us went down to see Fi and Grae for an early Xmas celebration. Grae cooked a huge Turkey, while Bernie brought the potatoes, and Anne made the desserts!
