Feeling cold, thinking warm…

Saturday, February 4th. 2012

Today we were supposed to meet friends for a visit to Whitechapel Gallery but they cancelled at the last minute because of the cold. This left us in quandary: what should we do instead?

We had intended to meet up in a cafe near Liverpool Street station and to have breakfast there. Now that that wasn’t going to happen, we needed to make other arrangements.

Instead we went to the Angel Inn in St John Street. Despite its name, this is a cafe, not a pub. We had breakfast there and thought about things to do with the day.

Just walking to the cafe, with a biting wind blowing in our faces, had convinced us that today was not a day for wandering about in the open. Even Tigger, who bears the cold much better than I, was reluctant to brave the winter chill.

It didn’t take long for us to convince ourselves that today was a good day for staying at home. It would be warm, we could take naps, drink tea, and generally relax. There would be other days when we could go out.

Back home we stoked up the heating and made tea. I fell to thinking of past days out and selected a few pictures at random to post here. Happy memories of past trips and – more to the point – of warmer weather! Now, let’s put that kettle on again…

    When you visited the Jubilee Clock, did you have a fried Mars bar at the nearby stall? I hope not!

    Hmmmm. Settling in with a lap robe, a good read, a nice pot of tea, maybe a bowl of Mandarin orange sections or some cheese and crackers, and a kitty to snuggle with. Sounds divine. Frigidly blusterous days are great weather for launching expeditions into a good book.
