This year I went to my in-laws house for Xmas.
My boyfriend's mum lives in England in my home town - 400+ miles South of Glasgow.
My parents live in Wales - 300+ miles SW, having moved from our home town a year and a half ago.
Last year we went to see both families. It was too much travel for me.
This year I was apprehensive. I had agreed to spend Xmas at HIS mum's but wondered how I'd find it and whether I'd miss my family.
It turned out to be ok actually. It was odd not having a home in my home town, but Xmas at his wasn't so different.
We drove on Xmas morning, leaving at 6am with clear roads down.
We arrived & shared gifts around lunchtime.
The dinner (4pm) was turkey & ham with trimmings (delicious) followed by fruit pudding & cream.
By evening-time his sister was drunk so games were off but tv-watching was in order: Dr Who special, Eastenders special... Then bed.
On Boxing Day we met old friends and played games with various family/friends' offspring.
It was VERY nice catching up with people I had not seen for some time.
I would do it again.
Hope you had a great holiday. Happy New Year (when it comes)!
