Dec 29, 2012
We didn't end up leaving till 4:30pm and it had started to rain heavily. We drove home, gave the kids an easy dinner, then settled down to watch the 2012 British Sports person of the Year show - with cheese and bikkies for dinner. No one felt like much after our all-you-can-eat lunch.
Had a rather late start to the day - rising at 10am. Oops. Well, if you can't do it on holidays, when can you? Had a few quiet hours still catching up before we all showered and headed over to Woking for a pub lunch with a group of our old friends. There were 12 adults and 7 children. It was so lovely to see everyone. Especially since we hadn't seen some people for 6 years since we'd left, and one person I hadn't seen since our wedding - almost 9 years ago! It was like we'd never left and we all chatted and swapped our stories for hours. Some had married and had kids since we'd left. One friend brought his new girlfriend, and another friend whom had been seriously ill 2 years ago (and we didn't think he'd make it) came along - and is in remission! It was great to see him doing so well.
