Festive greetings from South America
Hello and good morning (or afternoon for those elsewhere in the world).
I just thought that I'd wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a happy New Year. I'm really going to miss the UK since this will be my first proper Christmas away from home. All that turkey and all the trimmings, alongside meeting up with the relatives and of course the legendary Boxing Day down at John and Jacqui's.
Tonight we're off to Ale's sister's house for a knees-up. although I don't think it will quite match what I've come to expect of Christmas. Here, there is more of a tendency to celebrate on Christmas Eve (BuenaNoche) rather than Christmas Day as we do in Blighty.
I've not been able to send any presents this year due to a) JB still being out of work and b) not having the necessary faith in Uruguay's postal system and/or Customs (Aduana).
I sincerely hope everyone has a great Christmas, and as you all know - I am ready to field any support calls over the festive period. I'm sure people will be getting lots of tech gifts ;-)
