Happy Christmas to All

Well, I am leaving for Ireland a week from Wednesday, so thought I would get a short xmas note off before then. The build up to Christmas has so far included a trip to the German Christmas Market with the expats, and tomorrow I’ll be having a small gathering at my place for my classmates before we head off to have tapas at a restaurant one of the girls works at. (Hopefully have some pics to post later). I’ve bought some Christmas crackers and drinkies for tomorrow, and put up a few decorations. Many of the classmates don’t celebrate Christmas, I don’t think, so it should be fun to share experiences. I’ve completed two of my assessments, so only four left:)
modified to add: If you’d like to see some pics of the city centre in Leeds:

In case you didn’t click on it, the story behind the Christmas crackers is interesting. Susan, did you enjoy some good German food at the Christmas Market last Saturday? Reading about that made my mouth water!!

Oh, you know I did. First, had a bratwurst that was like 12 inches long on a 6 inch bun. Next, went to the beer tent and had a German beer and some mac ‘n cheese with onions, mmmmm. Then, bought some stawberry and kiwis on a stick covered in milk chocolate. Went back Sunday for a crepe and may go back tomorrow for lunch if there’s time. I could go for some more of that fruit. It was gorgeous.

Ah yes, my 25th birthday. Doesn’t seem that long ago really and here I am, about to celebrate 30. Big party in Leeds, folks. All invited…

You would drool over the macaroni, I’m telling you.

Is it just the onions? Do they use cheddar cheese? Mac fanatics want to know!!!!!!!!

Oh man, I don’t know. I would guess it’s a mix of a few different cheeses. Stopped by on my way home from uni today to get one last crepe (should have got the mac ‘n cheese instead). It’s fried onions on top…you know, kind of like you have on top of green bean casserole. The only other mac ‘n cheese I have had that compares was in the Belfast Hilton, believe it or not. Man did they have killer grub. That and the eggs benedict were out of this world. (On that note, I can’t wait to get to Ireland tomorrow and have some good food….yummmmm)
