- Exchanged small, meaningless pleasantries and seasonal greetings with the news stand guy at the station
- Gave the carol singers at Vauxhall a quid (they weren’t bad and it was for charidee…)
- Failed to give the man who attempted to strike up a conversation with me about Strictly Come Dancing the cold, dead, fish-eyed look of a Londoner whose personal space has been violated, but responded like a normal human being (he moved away hurriedly shortly afterwards).
It must be Christmas … and more to the point it was my last day at work. Normal service will resume on the 28th, or earlier if the Eurostar and Paris Metro service aren’t up to scratch.
