To start 2013 we take a look at what the team got up to over the festive break:
Mike Scott was left broke after taking his family to Disneyland Paris over the Christmas break. Mike spent the rest of his Christmas break cleaning up the house after an invasion of 15 guests.
Rebecca Nash spent Christmas managing her sons expectations as he had asked Father Christmas for a dog for Christmas, but ended up unwrapping a plastic octopod on Christmas Day.
Freddie Jackson went to an 'End of World' party on 21 December and was quite pleased when it didn't!
Simon Jones and his family spent over 7 hours stuck in the Christmas traffic.
Miles Paffard spent most of the Christmas period serving drinks & nibbles and loading & unloading the dishwasher. He particularly enjoyed a 6.45am start for Christmas stocking opening on Christmas Day having gone to bed at 2.30am on Christmas Eve.
Amy Rogers attempted to travel to Devon by train. This was unwise.
Much to his delight Richard Housley received an ice cream maker.
Fiona Hillier attended four Christmas dinners (thankfully not all on the same day).
There were some weird and wonderful presents given and received this year but our top three must be: a butter dish, a lawnmower and a Michael Bublé calendar.
