Exactly the same location as last year, I am once again sitting in my grandma’s guest room as I am typing these words. If you’re celebrating Christmas, I wish you the happiest of holidays, and if you’re not, well, Happy Friday. Wherever you are, whatever you’re doing, I hope you’re enjoying the food and your family, or have enough countenance to ignore stressful relatives.
I’ve been here since the 23rd, and later today my mum and I will be leaving for Paderborn to my mum’s place, where we’ll meet my brother and his family, and tomorrow there’ll be the big Christmas lunch with my mum’s side of the family. Same procedure as every year, basically.
It will actually be quite interesting, because the lunch is a big buffet that, as far as I can remember, has been fairly meat-heavy in its selection, and this is my first Christmas as a vegetarian. Bound to be a challenge, especially since I’m already a bit limited in my food choice due to my fickle gut. But hey, if all else fails I’ll just snack on pasta all day!
Now stop reading this and go stuff your face with food. xx
