Welcome to Grace and Leo Jay who joined us for the first time.. you are very welcome!

So 13 of us went to Pack more Christmas boxes for Project Shoebox!

the focus this time was for boys, teenage girls and men. We knew what we were doing this time so some speeeedy boxing up occured :).

Trev forced us to wear jingle bells, santa hats, beards and Chrismas jumpers.. which I personally feel added a lot to the run up to headington. We made a sleigh like sound as we passed by the houses of people trying to forget that Boris Johnson has stollen all of their Christmas cheer.. not yet we say.. NOT YET!! and as the full moon peaks as i type this there is an optimism that maybe, just maybe, this Christmas will be a GoodGym one!.. yes, yes it will!

Thanks to Rachael who organised a fab Christmas meal for us at the Oxford Blue!

We ate all manor of rich food, shrimps in a fancy butter, pots of turkey, home baked Pizza and Baklava.. I'll let people comment if they have more food info!! We had crackers, Trev tangled up the yoyo and got told off for threatening to use the Water pistol. Stu made an overdue and welcome return and we talked about dating and politics, amongst other things! There were about 2 cracker jokes which I wont repeat here.. (There is still time, the whatsapp group joke book is now...OPEN!).

Angus reminded people that we needed to vote tomorrow as we paid the bill.. and we all laughed because like no-one would forget that.. right?!..
