It was just myself for Christmas dinner this year. Jamie was supposed to be there at some point, but was recovering from a large bout of 'hangover.' That actually suited me fine and I was glad of the quiet.
In the evening I popped to Zest with Katie, Andy and their lovely family. It was nice sat in the square, quiet, without hoards of people, relaxing with a few pints on Christmas Day. Michael and Tim had arranged a few party games and made some food for the occasion. As usual, marvellous hosts.
After a turkey sandwich, we met Paul, Michele and Nia, their daughter, who had flown in from Canada, to spend time with Mum and Dad. She was a lovely young lady; it was a pleasure to meet her. It's good to see the 'No Wives Club', with their respective spouses in attendance. Just me now, waiting for Darrell to return home, on 28 February 2017!
We left Zest and continued to celebrate Christmas Day at 'The Pub', Masa Square, which was packed and had a live singer to boot. The atmospere down there was great. There were a lot of drunken expats, enjoying a rather warm Christmas evening, including ourselves.
Happy Christmas to the 'No Wives Club', wherever you are!
