Me looking brave before taking to the air (and the wing) of the plane. Wow, it was cold !! But the whole experience was totally exhilarating.

Jan's Blog

Computers and the internet are amazing things. One of my concerns with putting together this site was that it could remain current, yet with all my travelling I've often much to say, but little time to say it. Years ago when reading the news it would take me days on end to reply to the kind letters people sent. Now, with the magic of the modern age, I can keep you up to date with what I'm doing and other events in my life.

FROZEN FOUNTAINS IN TRAFALGAR SQUARE

Date: 8th January 2010

FROZEN FOUNTAINS IN TRAFALGAR SQUARE

I had to do some filming for 'Come Dine with Me' on Friday 8th January.  In view of the inclement weather and the possibility that had I managed to get home to Kent, I might not make it back again, the CDWM team put me up for the night in an hotel close to the Theatre in which 'Calendar Girls' was playing. 

Sadly I usually arrive late at hotels and have to leave early before I can fully utilise and appreciate the amenities.  However the Royal Horse Guards Parade Hotel was lovely with a huge and impressive ground floor housing the Reception and lovely lounges with open fires.  The Dining Room was called '1212' - as it was previously the home of Scotland Yard - and the phone number, for  those of us old enough to remember the days when a phone number actually had a place name, was Whitehall 1212.

I had a few hours to kill before the filming so I took my camera into Trafalgar Square and captured a few interesting images which I will put into the Gallery as I can only get one picture to accompany the Blog.  Thought this one was amusing - the little lost bird and the sign behind him.  Will put more into the gallery - icicles on the statues in the fountain etc.
