Shaw Farm

I am coming to the conclusion that the google map has gone mad - South Woodham is not near Crawley, it is in Essex, near Basildon.  And in SWF is a pub called Shaw Farm, where there are normally a few pub quiz enthusiasts and a carvery. But on Christmas Eve - you'll have to just trust me - it is the closest SWF has to the place to be.  It's where I meet all the sixth form friends that I only see once a year, talk about what everyone's been up to, struggle to remember the right names for the right friends-of-friends, and get a bit tipsy.  This year, it was a little quieter than normal.  We still managed to have a lot of fun, and someone got me started on vodka jelly which is never a good idea!  Unfortunately, my lift had to leave quite early, but Doug (my brother) had been making white russians (Kahlua, vodka and milk) at home with my mum.  So we sat up late, mum with a sherry and Doug and I with our cocktails, and talked rubbish until Mum pointed out that Santa would never be able to deliver any presents if we didn't get ourselves to bed!  :)

I've given up trusting Google maps; before the nice people at TravBuddy admin sorted it, the map for my meet-up blog showed United Kingdom>London as situated somewhere between Salzburg and Linz!
