Cherry just sent this in and here you are:
I kind of missed Christmas yesterday. I left London at 22:30 on Christmas Eve to fly home. My trip took just under 24 hours in total. But because of the time difference, I arrived in hot sunny Brisvegas, Australia at 8:30 this Boxing Day morning. I had just one 3 hour layover in Southern China but they don’t do Christmas in China. So it just felt like a normal day there.
However, it was wonderful to be greeted by my mum this morning at the airport after nearly 10 months on the road. It was well worth the missing of Christmas Day just to see my mum, hug my sister and to have a whole wardrobe rather than just a backpack of clothes.
I hadn’t lost the Christmas spirit either. I’ve been singing my Merry Christmas song for the last couple of days. It is rather simple. The lyrics are just: “Have a Merry Merry Christmas! Merry Merry Chris … Christmas”. And you just sing that to the tune of Happy Talk from the South Pacific musical. Feel free to sing along too, it’s catchy.
I hope your Christmas Day was full of great food, great company and great joy. I truly wish you all a very merry Christmas and lots of love for the coming New Year.
