December has flashed by, spent mainly on the Algarve, dividing our time between Albufeira, Manta Rota and Silves. The weather continued to be kind to us. I finished the first draft of my book and then we had a great time meeting up and going out with friends. At the end of December we travelled back to the UK to see Mike's family in Hull and mine in London for Christmas Day. For the New Year we met up with our friends Jon and Linda in Oxford and stayed in their van which is big enough for sleepovers. There are a few photos below taken during December in Portugal and the UK.
