You may have been tipped off to this by the word 'christmas' in the title and the date published being somewhere at the tail end of January.
I've been travelling pretty much constantly since the 19th of December and haven't had a computer so that's the explanation. But better late than never.
My holiday season began with a flight to Birmingham and a bus to Nottingham because it was cheaper than flying direct and I'm a student. I was going to stay with my sister, Lucy, before she took off for Tunisia for the 25th.
During the stay I dragged Lucy an hour down the road to Chatsworth House. This is an English manor house that was the inspiration for Pemberly in Pride and Prejudice.

Another day trip we took from Nottingham was in the opposite direction, towards the east coast and Norwich (pronounced, as I learned, to rhyme with porridge).
I have a great aunt there so we popped in for some lunch. We also went to see her daughter.
