I’m spending Christmas loitering on the Essex/Suffolk border with TractorGirl and her family. The aforementioned TractorGirl landed in MK on Tuesday, and I’ve really enjoyed having someone to come home to after work. Yesterday, we travelled to the lands of chavs and turnips (nothing like crude stereotypes, is there? 😉 ), with a surprisingly smooth journey given all the recent weather issues. We’re staying in a pub-come-hotel in Sudbury, which is pleasant enough, and have checked out the local Chinese takeaway, which was alright. This morning, we went to a quaint little parish church in Bures, and post Christmas dinner, am chilling on the sofa, next to TractorGirl, drinking Weston’s Organic cider. Good times 🙂 Oh yes, and the Queen was funny!
