Duncan was staying at our place for the night, so Tom took a half day and we met up for a drink at The Tankard. Tom pointed out the old site of the London Necropolis railway station as we made our...

Radio Alice
I've noticed Doughnut Time popping up all over London, and drawn in by the pretty neon signs, was tempted to try one out. It was so hard to choose with options like the Notorious P-I-G topped with...

Goose Island Tap Room
Duncan was in London this evening, so we met up with him down in Balham. We ended up at the Goose Island Tap House, which felt like it was a long way from Chicago. As well as craft beer and root ...

Light-Up Tube Map
We've been on the hunt for a cool neon sign to put on the wall above our stairs for a while, when I came up with the idea of making a light-up tube map to go with all of Tom's London Underground si...

Cha Cha Roll
For this week's Date Night, we tried out Cha Cha Roll in Soho. Cha Cha Rolls are big fat sushi rolls, similar to Sushirittos, but in even more interesting flavours. I had the Green Wasabi Prawn w...

Abandoned Euston Tour
As one of Tom's Christmas presents, I'd booked a Hidden London tour of the disused tunnels underneath Euston station. We met outside the old red-brick station on Melton Street where we were given ...

Gods Own Junkyard
We took Pamela for brunch at Palm Vaults up at Hackney Downs this morning. It was so hard to pick with so much tasty stuff on the menu, but I picked a lavender latte and Pamela had a pretty pale b...

Clown Museum
Pamela came down to visit for the weekend, so we headed out to explore East London, starting in Hoxton. We went for lunch at Arepa and Co, a Venezuelan restaurant on the canal at Haggerton.

Bobbin's been signed up for a four month subscription to KitNip Box and her first box arrived this morning. She couldn't wait to get stuck in, and after lots of chewing and clawing at the box, we ...

Japan Centre
We headed into town after work today and grabbed dinner at the newly relocated Japan Centre. The new shop has a cafe, so you can eat in, and lots of the dishes had been reduced, so we picked up a ...

Dead Dolls House
We picked up some super cute unicorn cookies when we were in the Selfridges food court last night. They cut their prices just before closing which is a good thing to know when you're nearby.

Word On The Water
Even though we still had the flu, our cabin fever had kicked in, so we headed up to Kings Cross for a walk. We stopped off at VX to have some vegan junk food for lunch. All the food sounded amazi...

Thursday
I was hoping to have a Burns Supper for my friends tonight but we're still too sick, so I celebrated by 3D printing a little Greyfriars Bobby instead. I've glued it to one of the jars in the bathr...

Fiesta Siesta
Not wanting to let my flu get in the way of my crafting, I've been playing around with my 3D printer and made a sugar skull pot for my hair bobbles and decorated it with my 3D scribbler pen. It ma...

Coolicon
Tom ordered a custom Coolicon lampshade to go above our little table upstairs. I love the teal colour and it's got a vintage tube map printed on the inside, giving you something to look at when yo...

Clapham South Deep Level Shelters
There was snow in the air as we made our way to Clapham South to meet up with the Hidden London team for a tour of the deep level air raid shelter. There are eight deep-level air-raid shelters bui...

Tom's picked himself up another London Underground sign for the house, this time a 1930's sign from Essex Road which used to be on the underground until it was transferred to British Rail in the 70...

Le Shuttle
When we were in Bristol, years and years ago, Tom spotted this Le Shuttle train teapot in the window of a closed charity shop and Jenny tried to get it for him the next day but it had already sold.

Tuesday
We met up with Jenny & Rin for dinner in St Paul's this evening. Yo Sushi! have a big sale for January, so we feasted on as much sushi as we could eat. We tried some of the new espresso mochi...

Wonderground
I got Tom some Wonderground placemats and coasters from LORIS&LIVIA for Christmas. They're made from the flooring of the Piccadilly and Victoria line tube trains and I love the design.

Burnt Toast Cafe
We went for breakfast at the Burnt Toast Cafe in Brixton Village this morning. The cafe is tiny with just a few seats outside, but the queue was long, so we knew it would be good. There were toas...

The Brits Are Coming
Tom got tickets to The Brits Are Coming at the ITV Studio this evening. It's the show where they announce the nominees for The Brit Awards and there were performances from lots of people I didn't k...
