One of the things I love about where we live is the sense of community. We know lots of our neighbours, and tonight went next door for Christmassy mulled wine and mince pies. I got to catch up with some people I already know, and got to know some people from a couple of streets away (who, it turns out, also have a small dog that rules their lives!!).
All in all, a nice relaxing evening with like-minded people. Not a bad end to a very busy week at work!
