On the Sixth Day of Christmas...

On the sixth day of Christmas my true love gave to me...

...6 Easter Eggs?
So I know the connection between Christmas and Easter in religious terms but in economic terms... today in the Canary Wharf Tesco there are Easter eggs!

We couldn't find the Kenyan crib at club, so this year's crib was made by the young people...
(and as a welcome change from other years - this year 'Little Baby Jesus' stayed in his manger!)

Random Acts of Interest & Niceness

Like rain - you never know when it could happen or what can grow from it or when it will create a rainbow or make you feel like a 4 year old in your wellies splashing in the puddles!

This all came about because Sue saw balloon animals on the hand rails of an underground trains and showed Tara, Thomas and me. ...This was a reminder of Anne Herberts advice to:

Practice random kindness and acts of senseless beauty

So we left on the DLR train seat - a clementine, candy cane, chocolates and a christmas card saying:

To whom it may concern - Happy Christmas...

We have done other such things in the past like giving out smiley faces, playing playground games outside Hackney Town hall at night and taking a large inflatable banana on a student march on Parliament Square...we plan on doing more...

Arcade Fire at the O2

Okay we could have been looking down from the sky , we were that far away from them and you would'nt want to be scared of heights...but other than that it was a pretty good gig (although it would be pretty amazing to see them in the Roundhouse in Camden - that would be a bit more up close and personal) . Saying that you got a really good vibe from these guys and didn't feel so bad about there being about 17000 other people there when told that £1 from each ticket was going to Haiti and then the evening was wonderfully rounded off by thousands of people singing along to Wake Up and still singing leaving seats and spilling out down the hundreds of stairs into the falling snow and still humming descending into the underground and loading onto buses...I hummed all the way home...
