This year’s Christmas is definitely the quietest of all the Christmas I’ve ever had. It was just me and Darren, while Marissa was at work. Unlike last year, I am not back in Brisbane and the entire day was spent staring at the computer screen. Darren did manage to cook up a bit of a feast, although only the two of us ate it.
I got Marissa a Oregon Scientific alarm clock, a VERY expensive and fancy one. For Darren, I got a basketball. That’s about it. Darren gave me a set of cuff links, which was nice. It certainly didn’t feel like a Christmas at all. I was on-call, Darren’s friends were all back with their family, and didn’t want to go back to Perth as he complains about it being too expensive. I’m on-call, while the rest of my workmates gets to have a holiday.
On the bright side, I am saving the holidays for our big trip to Vietnam in April. So that kept my spirit up. Besides, it’s time of us to move out of this little one-bedder to a new place in a few weeks. Hopefully I’ll get to have a white xmas next year!
