Almost the perfect day. Slept till 1, ate tea and potato scones, cuddled cats, went into town, bought vast amounts of amazingly cool and much reduced clothes in the M & S sale (including a gorgeous green/brown mixture cape thing, and a black cashmere shrug set, and a turquoise mohair cardi), emerged just in time to see the torchlight procession with Viking longboat and thousands of torchbearers walking past at EXACTLY THAT MOMENT. And I'd completely forgotten it was on. What are the odds? Followed the procession up Princes St (no buses, so I thought I might as well) with opccasional side excursions into the German Xmas market where I counteracted the freezing cold by snagging some mulled wine and Aberdeen Angus burger. Took pics futilely on phone cam. Then home to eat duck remnants and get ready for [livejournal.com profile] lilitufire's party, which was v pleasant and adorned with very many LJers, including [livejournal.com profile] purplerabbits, [livejournal.com profile] ophelia_complex and [livejournal.com profile] cairmen who turned out to share an interest in foody-ism with me and Tokyo Mark :-) Shared a taxi home through picturesquely falling snow. How festive is that, huh?

And you'll NEVER guess what Lisa's middle name is!! (I saw her passport while looking for a corkscrew..!)
