If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place...

If you get a chance,take it, If it changes your life,let it. Nobody said it would be easy they just said it would be worth it...

After our first Christmas in the uk my mother vowed never to experience another cold Christmas so we always went abroad to warmer places for Christmas. So even though I grew up in uk a warm Christmas seems normal to me.

Drinking rum before 11am does not make you an alcoholic, it makes you pirate..

In the last few years in England we opted for overseas holidays at Christmas.  Malaysia, Thailand, Australia.  It was the only time we could get 2 weeks off but it was ridiculously expensive.  Loved malaysia as they made much less fuss about Christmas being predominantly Muslim.

Now having my 3rd Xmas here since emigrating in 2015.

I love the heat but having being Raised in England you get used to a it being cooler at Christmas, just don’t seem to get into the spirit the same here. That said the kids do and that’s what matters. Must say Christmas on a whole doesn’t seem as commercialised here it’s not as in your face as the UK that probably contributes to the whole Christmas feel.

A white Christmas is great but the destination would be Canada or somewhere in  scandinavia where it’s not likely to turn to brown slush within 24 hours ❄️❄️☃️☃️
