We arrived back in Saigon this morning after an excellent Christmas holiday. I saw so many people and ate A LOT of delicious food.
First we visited Gem, Mum, Sam, Tim and Rosie. It wasn't the best timing as we were totally jet-lagged. I don't remember much except that Rosie was so CUTE and Gem started a food fight and denied it! We had snow so the countryside was really pretty.
We then had Christmas with Gareth's family. I was amazed at what a fantastic lunch they managed to cook up for almost 20 of us! YUM... Gareth gave me a lovely new bag. His parents also adopted teo new cats. One was a cute little kitten and the other only just over a year old so still really playful.
Before New Year I caught up with Emma, Katie, Seonaid and Lex. I am definitely very lucky to had such brilliant friends. It's always just like we haven't been away when we get chatting. New Year was at Rob and Jenny's and of course was quite boozy but a lot of fun.
I can't wait to be back to the UK in the summer and start settling down. It will be so nice to have our own place and not always be visitors in our own country. I don't want to wish away our time here but am sure it will fly as we plan a wedding, get jobs, try to find a place to live and pack up our whole lives for shipping. What a year!
