Christmas is coming to London – and more

Signs of Christmas – we traveled to London for two days.  It was a belated birthday present for Heather – but I received the fringe benefit of attending a play, The Ferryman.   The play portrays the impact on an Irish family of ‘the troubles’, a time when Northern Ireland saw deep and violent divisions between Protestants and Catholics.

We also had a visit to the Tate Modern Gallery – a retrospective on the 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution.

CHRISTMAS GIVING IDEAS

We love stuffed toys — and you can purchase this cute stuffed toy snow leopard for only £2,400 [$4,154 Cdn].  Sorry – we did not get the price of the cute reindeer.
