I don’t know about you, but over the festive period my thoughts often turn to family. Searching for the perfect present, arranging to spend time together, and sending well wishes to those you can’t see in person.
One of the things I find most interesting about that time of year is seeing the different dynamics families have, the different ways they are structured and the traditions which are often individual to that group of people.
This was the second Christmas I’ve been with Ben and the way his family spend their day is very different to my own. Waking together and having breakfast, opening presents, cooking dinner, chatting around the table over turkey and all the trimmings, then playing games while drinking a cool glass of something refreshing.
