Going home to Somerset/London. Yayyyyyy! I booked my flights a couple of days ago and I can't wait. I'm spending the day itself with my family, but there will definitely be some London-stylee drinking with my friends at some point as well ...

I always spend it in Rome. We do Italian xmas eve dinner, and English xmas lunch (my MIL is a Londoner, here over 50 yrs, but still does turkey, stuffing, trifle, xmas pud). SO I get the best of both worlds.We open presents xmas morning not xmas eve tho..

Ooooh lizzie your so lucky lol i miss turkey for christmas! and all the veggie and roast potatos!! hmmmmmmmmm

We might be spending christmas with Jess's in-laws again as we got invited last year to Very Happy its really nice to be around so many nice people!

My BF's parents are dead and he has no brothers or sisters and his aunts and uncles are in the mountains (7hours away) or near milan so we never ever get to see them Sad so holidays can be a bit lonely.

I am flying back to the "lone star " state of Texas on December 2 ( gotta be maid of honor on the 5th.. oh texas ) .. and will stay until the 28th with a week in los angeles to visit friends. I sooo excited as this is the FIRST christmas in 2 years that I get to be near my huge and crazy family ( probably why i am as well ) .. tommaso has to work which I was super sad about Sad.. but what can you do when they wave around a "contratto indeterminato" for him around.. eh.. so happy to go home where people make TOO MUCH OF A BIG DEAL about christmas and having an "eggnogg" latte from starbucks.

katja ur from somerset? I was just there in november, my good friend Hannah Poole is from there ( she did an italian experience like you in Florence and we became fast friends over wine and randomness) and now she lives in London .. small world! great place somerset! I LOVED pub food, as soon as im allowed back into the UK i will be there again !

Sure am, Georgette! It's a beautiful place. Where in Somerset did you go? I went to school with a girl called Hannah Poole, but it's probably not the same one. What sort of age is she?

Ah, not the same one then - that really WOULD have been a case of small world-ism! Southampton's not Somerset, by the way, it's Hampshire. Somerset is MUCH cooler. Wink Twisted Evil
