But, anyway, essentially my plans will involve me having three (possibly four) other 'Christmas' days with friends, before the main actual Christmas day. One will be at a delightful restaurant named The Hungry Horse not too far away from my home, and will be had with all of my closest friends from Corsham (who I otherwise don't get to see too often), one will be at the Nando's in Bath (a place I have been to for many special occasions) and will be had with all the friends I made at Bath Spa University (and a couple of assorted others who don't fit into either category) and finally I should hopefully get a chance to see my friends David Tubb and Naomi Brennan too. That's pretty much every person who has had a significant impact on my life.
So, I was just getting to bed the other day, when I started to think about how nice it would be if all of that went smoothly. If everyone actually turned out to be available for these events, and I had three days were I saw all of the people I wanted to just before the incredible Christmas Eve/Christmas Day/Boxing Day trilogy. That would probably be the best week of my life. I shouldn't get my hopes up, of course, because doubtlessly at least one person will end up not making it and it won't go perfectly, so I shouldn't build it up so that I will be disappointed, but it will almost certainly still be very nice even if I end up only seeing a few people. It's a nice reminder though, that the people you know are the most important things you can have in your life. I just couldn't get to sleep with the excitement of thinking of it all.
