So, in case you were wondering, London and I are going steady. We fell in love, and yes, like any relationship, we have our ups and downs. But ‘tis the season and I’m feeling all Christmassy, and can’t wait for a month of festivities with my city. Our first Christmas-themed date? A meander through the Southbank Centre Christmas Market. Mulled wine anyone?
