Winter Wonderland 2016

I think I somehow managed to avoid going to Winter Wonderland last year. The mix of over-priced Christmas market and over-priced funfair in Hyde Park is a massive draw to the learning disabled residents of Westminster and I usually end up supporting some of them to visit and have their cash vaccuumed out of their wallets. Last year I managed to avoid it but this year I did not and I even got suckered in to supporting an 'after dark' trip for my guys this year - the lights being a special part of the attraction.
I am usually much more comfortable in the over-priced craft market section but tonight our guys had eyes only for the over-priced fun fair and over priced food concessions. I think they all had a good time though. I was lucky enough to be paired with my lovely colleague Lilia who is more than game for the funfair rides. Luckily now I don't think I will have to do that again, this Winter at least.

This week I have been mostly re-reading: The Black Jacobins by C.L.R. James
