Today is the start of our family christmas…

What you ask…

A family Christmas…

You see, there are 6.5 of us here now…

and our parents are back there.

So the 6 of us are having our own christmas early.

Just us.

And then 2 head away (hence why we have it together early).

So this is our family – 6 of us on the other side of the world.

This is not christmas as we are used to it…

as regardless of who is here,

both of our parents are back there.

So this is christmas with family… but not the same family we are used to.

Its great,

but its also a reminder of how far from home we are.
