Besides getting the last of the presents and then setting about the task of wrapping them the hubster & I ventured up to London to go to Borough Market. It really is a fantastic place to visit and I highly recommend it to anyone in or visiting London. There are stalls with all sorts of food, snacks and drinks. I tasted the most sublime mushroom pâté and by the time we had done a loop of the market and went back to get some …. yip, sold out!! I can't believe I've taken almost 15 years of living here before I made it - my life would have been fuller earlier if I hadn't waited ;-) We bought cheese & a Lithuanian Scalded Rye bread for Christmas day, and spicy sausage which hubby put into last nights Cassoulet (gave it a great warmth);
… oh and a selection of cheese cakes which we all shared and noshed on Saturday night YUM.
I will say that whilst we are having rather mild weather in London/the South East it is still wet, windy and miserable and waiting at Gatwick station on Saturday afternoon to change trains was DIRE!
What is your favourite Christmas tipple?
Mine is Baileys traditional - its one of the only times I'll actually drink.
Have you ever come back form a long break?
Me … No.
How did you structure/plan your return to running?
After a short illness I normally go for a tester 3 to 5 mile run for the first few runs then slowly pick my long runs back up.
2 more sleeps … not that I'm counting ;-)
