Lovely family gathering at lunchtime at Vera and Robin's house, with Louise, Bec, Dave and Jessica. In the early evening we went to Usk to see the reindeer procession.

Decided to drive to South Wales for a change, so picked up a zipcar first thing, and spent the morning driving to South Wales. On the way to Abergavenny we stopped off in Penallt for a viewing of a cottage we were vaguely thinking about buying.

Erika went to visit Santa Claus near Sloane Square at lunchtime, I popped out from work to go with her.
