Merry Christmas

We have successfully survived our first Christmas away from family- and even seemed to flourish. Sharing the day with new friends for the first time meant that we not only continued our own Christmas traditions, but we gained some new ones. Champagne and croissants for breakfast (for example) is a new tradition for the Lewises, which we will undoubtedly wish to continue. Of course, being in England, we had no choice but to go the traditional roast dinner (we decided on a duck- turkeys are way too big for four).

And really, a Christmas day is not complete without a little bit of friendly squabbling over brand new and rather competitive board games. Monopoly and Settlers of Catan in one day? It is amazing the Lushes still like us.

Although it certainly was not the characteristic 'cold' Christmas we had been expecting, the constant rain made for a nice day to stay indoors and watch a few episodes of our new favourite show, Flight of the Conchords.

Who would have thought New Zealanders could be so funny (intentionally).
