    The usual for me - lots of time with family and friends, and two awesome days at the races. Working a lot as well to save up some leave for my epic holiday next year.

    Whatever everyone else's plans are, I hope you all have a brilliant time.

    9 or 10 pints on Xmas eve, really tie one on. Hope to achieve the boozer's triple crown (that's vom, fight and curry for those playing along at home).

    Stinking hangover on the day itself, probably surface about three for her maj's speech. Top up with a few cans and dooze rest of the day away. It's a time for the family, tbh.

    I jest, will be round me muvver's. Doubtless trying to "tune in" her old fashioned "television" to the Boxing Day test because she doesn't have Sky.

    My boyfriend is Jewish, so starting Tuesday night we're hosting 8 parties in a row.

    I'm leaving for New Zealand during the third one though, but because of travel time and crossing the international date line I arrive on the 24th. Then I'll be back in North America on the 30th. Short time, but I'll get to be with my family for Christmas.

    Boult to Mathews, OUT, Caught at second slip! It was a length ball going across Angelo, who tried to hit it hard towards the leg side and got an outside edge that flew fast towards Guptill, who took a reflex catch in front of his face

    Normally I love Christmas day but it will be a bit different this year with mum just getting out of hospital the day before. I'll spend most of the Christmas and New Year time working. Good money though

    Gonna be going to the Lakes again between Boxing Day and New Year's Eve. Rest of the time I'm working at Loros again and getting through a ton of revision - exams start on the 9th.
