SO same day, two posts... who'd have thought that was possible!?
I just wanted to wish any of you who are actually reading my blog, a merry Christmas!!! :D
I love Christmas so much!
The Christmas tree there is absolutely stunning, and the decorations surrounding this area were just jaw dropping, seriously GO TO POTSDAMER PLATZ... like right now. Go. They also have a huge Ice slide which you slide down with a rubber tyre with your friends. Loads of fun! I went down the slide with Martin and whilst I was having the time of life (being the smaller/lighter person) poor Martin was being slammed against the side walls of the slide and spinning uncontrollably hahah... oh my... he was so silent whilst being forced down the slide while I was woohooing all the way down! Was so much fun and it was 1.50 EUR for one shot. Imagine paying that little for such a fun Christmas activity which I think I will remember for a loooong time. In Scotland, we'd be lucky to be paying less than £10 for something like that, so we had struck lucky and did it while we could.

But Christmas is a wonderful time of year... The best if you will.
I came home early from Berlin (where I have been studying for the past 3 months) and surprised everybody, which was awesome! The reactions I got were amazing.
Our flight was on Thursday 18th of December and omg the nerves were real. We had a presentation to do in the morning of the flight which just added to the nerves, but it went rather well and we got a B plus for it! YAAAAY! then we had to figure out how to surprise everyone the first night.
I was planning to go straight to my boyfriend's flat and surprise him there.
Now one thing you have to understand about me is that I can never keep my own secrets to myself. I was so surprised I actually managed to keep it a secret from anybody for the two weeks I was planning the surprise but I kept spilling little hints here and there. I would be the worst at organising a surprise party. I just get too excited for these things and HAD to give a few hints. Plus Tama (my boyfriend) had actually been getting loads of extra shifts at the restaurant he works in due to it being Christmas season and I wanted to make sure he was not working on the Thursday night. I planned a very sexy entrance... wearing my new lingerie underneath nothing but a winter coat, and to ring his doorbell and very slowly pull the jacket off, throwing it to the ground in a nonchalant manner and walking in with my heels one in front of the other whilst pulling off his clothes. (Dont judge me, its very difficult to be away from your lover for a period of time)
However, when we FINALLY got off of the plane, it was raining (surprise surprise Scotland), and it was very dark. I was not sure how to get a taxi home from the airport to his flat so my friend had to show me the pick up point of the airport... after tromping about in the rain, we finally found the pick up point for the taxi and at that point my entire bag was soaking (lingerie and all) so decided against the plan of wearing that stuff.
Then I had to wait about 40 minutes for a taxi... and when i finally got to his flat I went upstairs and knocked the door- no answer... knocked again... no answer... I tried for the handle and it was open thankfully so i walked in and his face was priceless but the reaction was different as he just started laughing...
He said that he knew I was coming home early from all the hints I was dropping. DANG. I knew I couldn't keep it on the down low. Oh well, we had some fun and then fell asleep very late in eachother's arms. He worked the next day so I just stayed at his flat and made food, did some laundry and cleaned up whilst relaxing and having my first bath (don't worry, I've been having showers) in 3 months... with bubble bath. Holy crap. It was great!
Then the Saturday came and I knew Tama was working so I went home to see my family. Surprised the lot of them and their reactions were amazing because they genuinely had no clue that I was planning this. My sister actually cried bless her.
Anyways now I am home for Christmas... I purchased a Christmas jumper decorated with polar bears and its SOOOO COSY and fluffy i could die.
I feel so content and happy to be home with the people i love.
So merry Christmas everyone and I shall post very shortly. :)
Ciaow City cats.
