Mel's Random December

It's the 31st December? Already?! Where has this year gone?!? Unsurprisingly December has been all about Christmas which a quiet family focused day for me. But I did enjoy have most of this week just gone off from work - especially as my cousins are over from Canada and I was able to spend a most of the week as a tour guide around London which included visits to the Winter Wonderland at Hyde Park and M&M World at Leicester Square...I love playing the tourist in my home town occasionally - especially as I can use the tube without consulting the map and I know where the nearest loos are! :-)

M+M World - every colour m+m!
