The area in and around Soho combines three of my favourite things: bookshops, Chinese food and rainbows. I’d love to have a photo collage here, but it was a horrible rainy day so any pictures would have just been rubbish! The fact I’m writing this for you indicates that I got out of Soho in the end, and just so you know, nothing untoward happened. I got lost looking for a restaurant, then I ate Chinese food, looked in bookshops and bought a bowler hat.
Oh, and I almost wandered down a street with lots of neon signs.
I’m not going to be allowed out on my own again, am I?
If you’re ever in the area, I recommend eating at Hing Loon on Lisle Street. I went there when I went on the Sci Fi bookcrawl on Hallowe’en (as well as on Saturday) and they have a £4.50 for two courses deal! Most importantly, the food is tasty and eating there gives me a chance to practise my mad chopstick skills (I’m sure the other diners thought me an uncoordinated idiot, but at least I didn’t drop one of them this time). After lunch I went and bought a few Christmas presents and was accosted in the street near Forbidden Planet by a very nice lady from a temple who recommended that I do some yoga and visit their vegetarian restaurant.
The rest of the weekend was given over to problem sheets – checking the ones that I had answers for and finishing some of them. I also wrote a bit of a story – yes, even now that NaNoWriMo has finished. I must be mad.
Recipes (with photos!) will come next term, when I need to cook again – I currently have enough meals prepared to last me until the end of term (I am both lazy and horrifyingly organised when it comes to cooking). We’ll be cooking Christmas dinner in our kitchen this weekend though!
