Friendsmas

Merry Christmas Eve!

Tomorrow is officially Christmas — are you ready?! I literally just finished my Christmas shopping yesterday. Since finishing work up for the holidays, I have eaten a ridiculous amount that it’s no wonder that I don’t look like a small whale, right now. I mean as I am typing this, I am eating ๐Ÿ˜‚ That’s my favourite part of Christmas, not that I need an excuse, but the amount of food consumption. To be fair, I should be careful though because I have definitely started to feel the effects of eating too much… At the moment, though, can’t stop, won’t stop!

This week, I’ve had three Friendsmas gatherings and they have been so wonderful. On Thursday, a few work colleagues gathered at our friend’s house and we cooked, drank and ate and it was so nice. We had a whole feast going on including: roast beef, potato bake, mac and cheese, honey roasted parsnips, brussel sprouts, pigs in blankets, quiche, fried chicken and lumpia. We also had sticky toffee pudding and custard for dessert, which was so so yummy. 

My Secret Santa at work got me a framed picture of Rick from Rick & Morty with Szechuan sauce and some drawing pens. ๐Ÿ˜ญ๐Ÿ’•

On Friday, I went down to Dirty South in Lewisham for me and my friends’ annual Secret Santa dinner. We originally wanted to go to a place for actualy Christmas dinner, but most places wanted you to put down 50% deposit and yadda yadda. I suggested we go to Dirty South instead where they do Other Side Fried burgers. If you follow me on Instagram then you would have seen me posting quite a bit about these burgers. They are soooo delicious. I went for the Honey Butter burger (fried chicken, smoked honey butter, bacon, pickles, lettuce) and Dirty Fries (bacon, parmesan, hot sauce, ranch sauce). Nom, nom, nom.

My Secret Santa got me Harry Potter socks, a Harry Potter mug and a Doctor Who mini calendar which I will definitely be using at work. Thank you, ๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿพ ๐Ÿ’•

Last night, a few uni friends and I gathered and again we cooked, drank, ate and played Cards Against Humanity to show everyone just how depraved we are. Our feast included: turkey with stuffing, pigs in blankets, yorkshire puddings with gravy, sweet potato hash, mac and cheese, vegetables and lumpia. We also had gateau for dessert and there was plenty of wine and rose flowing, as well. It was such a lovely evening, and I was absolutely shattered by the time I got home.

Do you have any special gatherings with your friends during the Christmas period?

    I love that you hang out with your friends so close to Christmas! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ I donโ€™t do anything like that, itโ€™s mostly with the family. Most of my friends are too busy or go away/on holidays around Christmas time. And when I was younger, my family would go overseas around that time too, because it was the only good time to go see our family in Indonesia. So I didnโ€™t always get the opportunity to spend time with my friends anyway.

    Both your secret Santas got you really good gifts, I must say โ€“ they know you really well ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Cards Against Humanity is such a good game haha. I didnโ€™t play enough when I was younger, I think I just wasnโ€™t aware of the game. But if I did, my friends and I would have had a ball ๐Ÿ˜† Nick and I get bored occasionally and play with just the two of us but itโ€™s not as fun ๐Ÿ˜ข
