Merry Christmas for Monday folks! Hope everyone had an absolute blast, drank plenty of mulled wine and tackled that Christmas dinner to your heart's content.

I have to admit, within all the exhilaration of the Christmas reunions and celebrations I've not been on top form with my photography this last week, mainly because my camera becomes a prime distraction for me when I'm out and about and my communication skills fly completely out the window, but in spite of that, it's so nice to be home! I've spent a large portion of this week in Liverpool surprisingly, taking in all the festivity the city has to offer. My time there started off pretty foggy down at Albert Docks for some ice skating and progressed into countless ventures around the Christmas markets and shops.

Christmas day itself was very chilled; very much how I hoped it would be, not doing much except exchanging presents with family, scoffing our faces with turkey, roast potatoes and all the other glorious essentials to a Christmas dinner and finally settling down in front of the telly to watch some Christmas specials, although we didn't stick to our usual tradition of watching a Harry Potter movie this year. 

All in all, a great day with great company. 

2017 has been one hell of a year and one I won't be forgetting anytime soon. Hard to believe this time next week we'll be in 2018!? That means it's almost a year ago that I launched my how times flies. All the best folks as we proceed into a positive and healthy new year ahead.

WEEK 38 - 27/12/2017



After a very rocky few month's I made the long eight and a half hour journey back up the country. Starting at 9am on Monday morning I set off from Penryn Station and three changes later I arrived home around half six and ready for the Christmas break! It's honestly felt like an eternity since I've been home, and no wonder seeing as well I've not been back in eight months which for me is a long time without seeing family and friends. Don't get me wrong, Falmouth is practically my second home now and means a great deal to me, including all the glorious people I've met in the two and a half years I've lived there, but once a Northern, your always a Northern and that's that! I think its something we put in the pies??

Naturally, my body was completely drained as it would be after any eight hour journey, but it never fails to make me laugh getting off the last train to see my parents on the platform waiting for me, with my Mum looking all giddy like a child on Christmas day, waiting to open that first present. After getting all the latest northern goss I rested up and was straight out the next day to see my two best buddies as a catch up was thoroughly needed - drinks and all! 

All that's left now is to let the Christmas celebrations finally commence and the remaining reunions unfold!
