So last night was host to 89's pre-Christmas celebrations, a joyous celebration filled with stuffing, roast pork and crackling, pigs in blankets, a little Bucks Fizz and yes, you've guessed it, a didgeridoo! We had all been speculating about what the enormous present that Ruth so sneakily crept into the house was and with baited breath we erupted into fits of laughter as Emma unwrapped her beloved didgeridoo! I cannot help but laugh out loud every time I hear a sort of mooing noise coming through my wall, an AMAZING present! Other gifts included a David Attenborough book, tea/coffee flask, mini finger football game and, wait for it...my megaphone! Trololololol! I have never laughed so hard, I don't know what possessed my house mate to buy me a megaphone or why he thought I needed to turn up the volume on my pretty voluminous voice anyway, but it certainly put a smile on mine and everyone else's faces to say the least, so thank you very much James!
We then enjoyed an incredibly delicious Christmas roast dinner prepared mainly by food and ego lover alike, Mr. Gareth Shute complete with Christmas crackers, paper hats and your typical bad jokes. We rounded off the celebrations with a glass of bucks fizz (classy, I know), and a hot headed game of Articulate. Fabulous.
After worrying throughout my year abroad about what my house mates would be like in my final year I could not have asked for a better bunch of lovely people. Last night's fun has just made me all the more excited to get my final two exams out of the way tomorrow and prepare to go home for even more festive fun!
