I spent a good few hours yesterday naked on the beach with some friends and it was the perfect antidote to the lovely but not relaxed time with my family over Christmas. Some other friends are down there today but I got enough sun yesterday that if I spent another day in the sun, I’d end up fried and very red.

Today I’m off to a bbq at some friend’s place and I’m a bit nervous. I’m sure I’ll be fine but I only know the hosts and possibly one or two others and all a bit vaguely. But I figure I’m going and widening my circle of friends is never a bad thing.
