We are still in London, so writing this post again on the hoof and filling up on Christmas spirit. The Albert Hall was a huge success last night, see yesterday's blog post here And today we Christmas shop with the added bonus this year of also following the Paddington bear trail. Fifty bear statues to be found, so far we have spotted a couple and hope to add many more throughout the day.
As always there are lots of twinkly lights and those in Carnaby Street are modern and fun...
Oxford street lights were at first a disappointment but I confess to now actually liking their simplicity and end en mass do look spectacular.
I love that the shops will not be outdone and both the department stores Debenhans and John Lewis filled their walls with white lights, warm white and ice white. Both equally stunning.

Side street too in London light up and you really need to look all sound to make sure nothing is missed.
Covent Garden has the largest baubles I have ever seen, they are in fact the same decorations they had last year which pleases me and they have a beautiful gigantic silver deer statue.
We will continue today soaking up the spirit, ticking off the Paddington's we see and hopefully competing our Christmas shopping. Never forgetting that today is the last Sunday in advent and tonight on our return home we will light that fourth candle.
For those of you wondering , I have not picked up my crochet hook or blanket since the last post on it a week ago. I knew this week would be otherwise occupied. I am still hopeful to begin the border and complete it by the new year?!? Watch this space! Hope the last few days of Christmas preparation go according to plan for you all. Are you calm or stressed out about it all?
❤️ I can almost smell Christmas from here... ❤️
