Our 2007 UK and Europe Trip
One more sleep to Scotland
21 Dec 2007
Our trip to the shops at Welwyn Garden City took us past a large pond with its surface frozen over with a thin layer of ice for the first time. It was very funny to see the birdlife standing on the surface rather than swimming in the water.
I was reminded of Indooroopilly or Garden City Shopping Centres immediately pre Christmas with endless driving in circles for parking spots and once found fighting the hordes for the last “must buy” items and with selection made, joining the queue to the cash register to pay for it.
Last night we decided to dine out with Matthew, Renee and India at our local pub, The Crooked Chimney, which is literally just a short but nippy 3 minute stroll from home. I am happy to report a delicious meal was had by all and yes, the pub does have a crooked chimney.
