I'm having two Christmas dinners tomorrow, one at my best mates family home late afternoon, and the other at 1pm with a guy I met a month ago.
I've worked on some jobs with him, proper decent bloke, moved into town a few months ago, no family or friends local and I found out yesterday when we finished work that he will be on his own tomorrow.
I was troubled about it last night so bought two oven ready turkey dinner meals today and rang him to say "Get your oven at 200C for 12:30pm tomorrow I'll be round with Crimbo dinner and some cans".
The happiness in his voice was lovely and I'm looking forward to an hour or two of a few laughs. He's a rough scaffolding manual graft type bloke and I don't know what he's like after a drink so didn't want to take/invite him to the dinner I'll be at which will involve much drinking, maybe next year.
Either way I've never been alone all Christmas day and I hope we all try to fit in any folk we know in real life who are facing a lonely 25th.
I wish all members the best tomorrow and a happy 2016.
