Happy Boxing Day!

This has been a strange holiday for us this year, no doubt. It is weird not being home and surrounded by family. However, we ended up really enjoying ourselves with just each other for company. It helps that we are each others favorite people to be around. But, I’m sure the novelty of being abroad has a lot to do with it too.

We had a lovely Christmas Eve lounging in new jammies, exchanging our gifts and watching UK television show holiday specials (“Gavin and Stacey” and “Have I Got News For You”). Yesterday we went into London for an “Orphan’s Christmas” hosted by fellow Ex-pat friends for those of us not making the trip back across the pond. We enjoyed a fantastic ham dinner, the company and conversation; and even a bit of family time as our friends have a baby. The streets of London were strangely quiet as we drove in and out. Late in the evening we watched the new Doctor Who and Wallace and Gromit, also out for the holidays. Our US shows we watch go on hiatus in December, it’s nice to have something new to watch snuggled up on the couch.

I hope everyone had a holiday as enjoyable and stress free as ours! It’s back to snuggling under a blanket for me, happy Boxing Day!
