Trolls and Trumpets

On Thursday the first Moomin Shop in the UK opened in Covent Garden Market, London WC2. It’s a bit hard to find as it is on the first floor rather than street level, but the Finnish Ambassador Mr Pekka Huhtaniemi was there to declare it open and Sophia Jansson, niece of the Moomins creator Tove Jansson, made a very heartfelt speech about the Moomins links with London.

and to round off the week those of us racing through Waterloo Station on the way home on Friday night were cheered by the rousing sounds and seasonal tunes of The Lambeth Wind Orchestra in the concourse by the underground, I was still humming Jingle Bells when I got back to my flat!
