New Year's Eve at Bernie and Roger's

Bernie and Roger held a New Year's Eve party for a group of us. It was good to catch up with everyone again after Xmas. Lots of laughs and cocktails courtesy of Roger who was in full Tom Cruise Cocktail mode. Ruby of course was hanging around the table in case some food came her way!

Xmas in Norway

We're just back from spending Xmas in Elnesvågen with Siv's Mum and brother. We spent the time relaxing and catching up with friends as well as having good Christmas food. we had quite a lot of snow while we were there, about 40cm (18 inches) in one night alone, which meant a busy morning digging the cars out afterwards. Some photos are below, but all of them are here:

The Blockheads at The Jazz Cafe

A group of us went to The Jazz Cafe to see The Blockheads for an Xmas get together. As usual in Camden at this time of year, it was pretty busy, and the Jazz Cafe crowded, but we managed to get close to the stage.

England v Samoa at Twickenham

A group of us went to Twickenham to watch England play Samoa at Rugby. We met up at The Crosse Keys for breakfast, before heading off to The Hole in the Wall at Waterloo. From there we moved on to The White Cross in Richmond, before a walk to the ground. Not a great game, even though England won....then a walk back to Richmond and a train back to Waterloo and a quick drink back in The hole in the Wall before heading home.

There's no elegant way to eat a Twickenham pie!

Trip to London

Siv and I took a small pre-Xmas trip into London on a nice sunny Autumn day. We stopped for lunch and did some food shopping at The Scandinavian Kitchen. We then headed on to look around the Xmas shop at Liberty, before winding our way through Soho and stopping off for a coffee at Caffe Latte Soho before heading home.
