Well friends… it seems I have to deliver the disappointing news that I did not, in fact, complete my Christmas Break Bucket List in time to write this blog post… oops!
But I have good reasons, I swear! A) I was very ill for most of the past two weeks and am now on antibiotics for a chest infection, and B) I’m going to France at the end of January and so I wanted to forego doing anything that would cost money in hopes of saving for my trip!
I did, however, have an extremely rewarding and fulfilling Christmas break doing a few things from my list, as well as spending time with some pretty amazing friends!
I went to both the Natural History Museum and the Science Museum! They are awesome and I have to go back and spend a day in each because there is so much to see! I went with my lovely new friends Rob and James (they were mentioned in a previous blog post… they are wonderful!)
(I had a photo of them… I can’t find it on my computer…)
I went to Platform 9 ¾! The queue was ridiculously long though, so Lauren and I decided just get a photo of the cart going through the wall instead of me and the cart going through together… that’s still copacetic I think!
I went to Charing Cross with James and Rob… they told me what I can only assume was a made up story about it and then they posed for photos…
(Also had a photo of this which is not on my computer… it’s like my technology is allergic to Rob and James! So disappointing…)
Lauren and I visited the Prime Meridian! Well we saw it, but were too cheap to pay the admission to get photos and so we following the line onto the pavement and took a photo there! There was already a small piece of tape indicating the Prime Meridian and so I can only assume I’m not the only cheap person in the world…
I opened Christmas presents! That’s pretty self-explanatory!
I decorated my room… with Christmas presents!
So y’know… typical Londony stuff, et cetera, et cetera.
I’m sure there is lots more to report but I’m running on very little sleep so I’ve decided to include more photos than I normally do to make up for my dreadful lack of enthusiasm!
Oh yeah… New Years Eve in The UK is the same as New Years Eve in Canada except here I got like six embarrassingly platonic midnight kisses… C’est la vie xx
