Last week I had a week holiday and took the time to fly back to England for the week. It was great to see everyone back home again, as it was the Christmas Holidays when we last saw each other. It was also a well-timed trip back home, as there was always lots to do. Upon landing I went and stayed with some friends who live in London and enjoyed the long over due catch up with them all. Afterwards I headed back home to see the family (and pets), not long there after we then headed to my uncle’s, who had was celebrating his birthday and had a BBQ at his home, where even more family came to visit.
After as very jam-packed first 48 hours back in the country, I then had some time to relax at home and spend the time throughout the following week meeting and catching up with old friends. The highlight being at the very end of my short stay in England, as the champions league final between Liverpool and Tottenham took place, which was great as I haven’t really had the opportunity here in Germany to follow the football as I normally would back home. (I don’t religiously support a football team but enjoy watching the games nonetheless) and to watch the game, we had a viewing party round a friend’s house, who hosted a surprise birthday party for a good friend as well. This meant that I had the chance to catch-up with a lot of friends who travelled from all corners of the country to be there for the occasion.
After a great week off in England, it’s back to business in the office here in Idstein for 4 more weeks then it’s time to head on my next trip away to Spain with a big group of friends. The weather is starting to heat up as we head towards summer now and everything is on the up.
