This year it’s actually been a truly happy holidays. I spent Christmas eve educating Daniel in all my favourite romcoms like Love Actually and the Holiday whilst baking Swedish treats, not leaving the flat. Then yesterday we were eight friends cooking a big meal, sharing presents and playing pool in our living room to Justin Bieber. Nothing extravagant, nothing stressful, just a bunch of mates all bringing a little something for the festivitues. Jared kept on calling it ‘the orphan Christmas’ because apparently that’s the north american term for when friends abandon family during the holidays. It just didn’t feel that sad.
I missed my family because I love spending Christmas with them. But I also have to admit that celebrating with friends took the edge and pressure off the whole thing. There just wasn’t room for disappointment because it was going to unconventional any ways.
I will show you more photos from it, but just wanted to say my hellos to you now and hope that you had a good time too. If you didn’t, thank god Christmas is over and there’s a whole year until the next one.
