A very stress free Christmas

Christmas this year saw the first time jack and I were not with the family. We started with a vodka at 9.30am and continued topping up throughout the day. Breakfast consisted of a fish finger sandwich and then late morning we went to see the new Sherlock Holmes film. For lunch we both went to a Thai restaurant and ate some seriously tasty food and then in the afternoon we went shopping and then back to the flat to play computer games, eat mince pies, watch films and drink more vodka. Oh and Friday we went to Disneyland so attached are some photos!

Jack singing

With the gap students from England. In front of 50 people from the company. Oh dear.

When jack meets decorations

I gave jack a budget for Christmas decorations and came back to find that the sofa looked like father Christmas has vomited on it.

The dragons back

So today I took a trip to the dragons back. It is a chain of mountains that looms above Shek O beach and village. It took about two hours in all to complete the hike and it involved a lot of uphill walking, but the weather and views made it worthwhile. That and the amazing Thai food we had at the end.

Langham place

Right next door to my flat is the gigantic building in the picture below. It is called langham place and it houses a cinema, gym, offices, shops, bars and some pretty good food places too. It is huge and where jack and I spend quite a bit of time. Below are some pictures.

Yesterday was the company pantomime and that meant everyone in the office put in three consecutive 11 hour days to get the final prep organised. The show was a huge success though, with jack working backstage helping change the set. I'm trying to persuade him to take a more leading role next week as the company party by dressing up as father Christmas. Not sure if he can be persuaded. Below are some pictures.

Jack on campus

One thing that has changed since my last long post is that my brother now works for the company. Here are a few pics I took today of his posters, desk and the large room where he usually works and teaches.
