and it wasn't bad at all. I was up in Gloucester with my brother and his family, and it was fun. It actually snowed on Christmas day, which was pretty cool.
I used Megabus.com to get up there, which was a bit dodgy, customer service is non-existent, the buses can be cramped and a bit uncomfortable, but hey, where else could you get a ticket to Glouscester for Â£3 ? (Â£1 if I had booked a few weeks earlier!)
Anyway, I'm back in London now, and I've got 2 days to relax and recharge my batteries.
