As of this moment, that will change.
So, keeping all that in mind, this blog highlights the main events I have lived through in the last 6 months...
Fortunately, we made it over without having our flight cancelled this time, although the same cannot be said for Chris' parents whose 3 day pre-Christmas stay in London turned into something of a travel nightmare, which can probably be summed up by their return trip: what was supposed to be a simple, 1.5 hour flight from Gatwick to Geneva became a train from London to Manchester, then a flight from Manchester to Zurich, then a flight from Zurich to Geneva.

I have to say, I wasn't overly keen on watching as my mum removed the neck and the bag of assorted organs from within the turkey, but I guess I'll have to do that this year when I try cooking the meal myself. My aim is to cook the full, British-style Christmas dinner, so roast turkey, potatoes, parsnips, stuffing and brussel sprouts. Wonder how much I will actually remember this year?
We also had a nice curry at the Raj Tandoori in Knebworth with my friends, including my mate Adam, a fellow expat who made the trip over from Heidelberg in Germany. I like to think he came back to England just to see us, but I imagine he probably spent a moment or two with his family as well. Knowing him, he would have flown over just for the curry.
