Christmas done and New Year to come

Hello again World!

I hope you all had an excellent Christmas. I certainly did. I was working on Christmas Eve which caused Christmas to pounce on me the next morning. I usually have a few days to mentally prepare for the festivities but not this year.

I spent Christmas with two friends from work. Sam and Doug are excellent people to be with as they too are away from their families at the moment. Doug's family are living at home in Argentina and Sam's are up in the North (of England).

Our Christmas day - Boxing Day and day after boxing day was comprised of eating and watching films. On Christmas day morning we went to Church and there was only a few of us so we sang carols and shared thoughts it was very pleasant. We finished the meeting with communion. We retired to Sam's house after Church.

Interestingly we only managed one meal a day, this was due to the immense amount of food eaten during that meal (we did snack though). The turkeys in Morrison's were split up into weight range. Which meant that a 4kg turkey was the same price as a 6kg turkey. It would be silly to resist such an offer. So it was a 6kg bird for 3 blokes. This was accompanied by roast parsnips, carrots and potatoes, mashed potatoes, pigs in blankets, stuffing, sprouts, gravy and a reverse trifle for dessert.

We were pretty much immobilised by the meal, so we sat down and started on the Christmas television and DVDs. Over the three days I completely lost track of what day it was, what time it was and how many films we saw. To be fair it was a good few!

So that was my Christmas, very relaxing and spent with good friends.

At the moment I am at home. I will be here until New Years day now. I am greatly looking forward to it. I have missed my family and friends. I have two options though. One is to spend it with my family and another to go and see my group of close friends that are here in Wrexham still (may be).

I'll report back in a few days time to tell you how it was. Also in the same post, I'll also give you my Evangelical Christian's moral opinion concerning the adoption of a child by Elton John and his civil partner. I know that this has caused a lot of emotional uproar from people opposed to it and from people who are even more opposed to people opposed to it, so I will express a Christian's point of view.

I'll catch you all soon,

I hope you have a happy New Year everyone.
