This Christmas has felt extra special due to the stresses of uni life weighing down on me just weeks before I travelled home. Spending these past 2 weeks at home with my family was just what I needed before heading back to the lovable chaos that is university life. When you are a student living away from home it makes you very grateful for the small things in life that you once took for granted. Having central heating instead of relying on a tiny heater that you're too scared to use for too long, the never ending supply of food and having the ones you love under the same roof (even if they do drive you a teeny bit mad). Plus the endless cuddles with a certain tabby cat is an added bonus!
