Hotpot after a cold day

The weather last week was slightly colder for October, and London had its first October snow in over 70 years. The cold weather reminded me of the days I have just arrived here.
We went to shop for Alex’s jacket last Saturday. In rainy weather and when the sky got dark by 5pm, there is nothing nicer than having a Sichuan hotpot for dinner.
