How do you solve a problem like a lunch hour?

What do you do if it’s getting close to Christmas and you’re scratching around trying to find something to write for a blog post? Well you could go for a brisk walk and peek down a road that says is residents only by Amen Corner and snap a pic of what turns out to be the old back wall of Newgate prison. You could do that…but you’d have to pretend to look all lost as you wandered around and, quite frankly, that can be exhausting.

One of London's most notorious prisons? I was glad to see the back of it.

On a separate note, for those of you who want to belt out some carols at lunchtime and work near the City, check out www.cityevents.co.uk * for a list of concerts near you with the starting times. I popped into St Bride’s, Fleet Street on Monday for a rousing rendition of Once in Royal before nipping up to meet P for a coffee. Festively refreshing.

* (St Botolph, Bishopsgate specifically mentions mulled wine and mince pies, although whether these are free or not is not even in the small print.)
