2003-12-31: "Christmas is over"
I have just spent a lovely week and a half with my family in Yorkshire at Mum and Dad's house. Simon was there with Zhao, Catherine, and her parents.
The Chinese family enjoyed their stay tremendously, and were very upset to leave. I don't think they had seen anything quite like Christmas before, especially not with a huge roasted turkey.
We went to Whitby on Saturday 27th, it was sunny but quite cold and a little windy. The meal was rubbish, three lamb joints were served still frozen in the middle, and my Giant Yorkshire Pudding with Chilli turned out to be a small baked potato.
I'm now down in London with my friends Linda, Alex, Chris, and Kim.
