I spent Christmas with my family but also went to see my boyfriend and his family. Christmas is really big for his family and everyone had bought me a gift! I was in shock because I only bought something for his parents and his sister! They're all so kind!
I'm pleased to say that I am now on the road to recovery after being so bloody ill for the last week and a half, nearly 2 weeks! I still have a bit of a funny cough and my nose is still a bit blocked but i'm not coughing up blood anymore (ew) and my head isn't killing me much anymore which is great! I had to not go to work last week as I was so ill and I felt so bad, but I had gone in the day before and I went in the day after and I felt worse! Coughing on everything and all the customers..lol, but i'm still on a probation so I don't want to make any screw ups during this time! Only 2 months to go now, and then I guess i'll find out if they really want me there! Tom came to see me while I was ill and bought me 4 Hello Kitty plushies because I was sick! It was also an early XMas gift for me, which was so sweet!

Yesterday I met with Ingvild and Kei! Ingvild spends Christmas in the UK with her grandfather and because I met her in Finland, she now knows someone over here she can meet up with! She came on the 22nd and flies home today, and although we didn't make any plans to meet until yesterday, she came into my work the day she flew in to surprise me! I was like "AHH INGVILD!" when she walked in lol! I suppose a flight from Norway to UK is okay though, maybe like 1-2hrs max so no worries about jetlag or anything :D
Surprisingly it wasn't that cold in London yesterday, which was nice, but of course, you still have to wrap up otherwise you'll get sick..like I did lol! Here was my co-ordinate:

We went looking for somewhere to eat because me and Kei hadn't eaten and we ummed and aahed about several places and ended up going somewhere more expensive than where we were going to go lol but the food was nice and the staff are nice so that was fine. We met Ingvild on Oxford Street which is probably one of the worst places at this time of year because everyone is mad for all the sales and stuff and of course, it was crowded and horrible! I'm so glad it wasn't boxing day though as that would have been so much worse!!
Mind you, there was a tube strike all day, so like no lines were working, so how did anyone manage to get to shop in London at all? I was supposed to work but couldn't because there was no physical way of me travelling there! I ended up going to Brighton to see my Dad's side of the family. I really wanted to go to the Cyberdog in Brighton to see what it was like because it said we were only 15 minutes away by car and also because I don't travel there all the time, but I don't think it was open because I called them to check and they didn't pick up, and I tried 3 times and there was nothing :( Someone I know was in Brighton the same day and said that it looked like it was closed when he went past so maybe it's a good thing I didn't just rush over there to check it out lol!
I'm trying to save my money right now because i'm not used to being paid monthly so anything I get has to last me for another 3 or 4 weeks or so which is difficult but I really want to be able to not spend things! Obviously I have to spend for travel and if i'm out, then food also, but if i'm at home then it's okay, although the lure of online shopping is sometimes too great! I did buy some d.i.a. stuff for myself because hey, it's Christmas and I thought what the hell, and I still have money leftover so i'm happy! No more stupid spending now though! So i'm hoping that I will receive some nice looking parcels soon!
It's going to be New Year's soon! What is everyone doing?
