I got up at 8 a.m. and got ready to go to Johns. I started off with quite a heavy pack as I have bought them a big book of American trails. Luckily the weather was quite good and I made good time to the halfway Mark along Oxford Street which was quite quiet I was listening to podcasts on my hint after the halfway Mark it was all pretty straight but then he did start to drizzle a bit I stopped for a kid cuts and put my head up and put the cover on my backpack but it went pretty smoothly and I got to John's by 11:30 a.m. I will meet him at his parents and had a very nice breakfast of a bagel with eggs that Verena had made I then helped John to move the table and set everything up for the main dinner which was quite a sumptuous affair. I did do my fair share of scraping carrots and potatoes First and later Ellie and Lena and Mark and any came around and we all sat around table and had a great time the crackers had racing penguins in them which was quite fun we did have a few beers as well during the day to help wash the food down and then we went in the main room and watched strictly come dancing and a few other shows like Downton Abbey. We also opened presents and I got some beer from Rena and a great T-shirt for running in and a pack to make paper aeroplanes and a great coaster stroke fridge magnet. I was one of the last up when we finish watching the new Conan the Barbarian film then I went upstairs to the loft to sleep which was lovely and warm.
Got up about 10:30 and we had some croissants for breakfast with John's parents then we watched a bit of cricket and started cooking again for the main meal which include did bubble and squeak which was good and plenty of leftover turkey and ham which was great as well after that and a few beers I was about done so had to call it a day and came home on the tube
