I had my first grown up Christmas away from family this year. 5 other friends, Tom and I in a cottage in Devon. Goose, Ham, Mexican, Curry, Joyous food. Endless games and chatting. Playing guitar and singing badly late in to the night. Completely awesome, and so relaxing.
Since then we've been on the road having other christmases with family, and going to Lula's for new years.
