Next to the red scented candle stands a photograph in a small frame, propped up by a stone from the river. It was a Christmas greeting from our friends that came as such a wonderful surprise. It was 1991 and after two years in Edinburgh we returned to London for our first Christmas as a married couple.
The photograph is a shot of Picadilly Circus at night. On the main advertising screen a simple message reads ‘Merry Christmas Xenia & Paul’. It made us feel at home.
