    What’s the jubilee present exchange ? Sounds fun!

      It’s a bit of a tradition with my two best friends – we go to a cafeteria/restaurant called Jubilee in Malta’s capital city (Valletta) every Christmas (usually it’s on Christmas Eve or on Boxing Day) – and we take over a little corner of the place with ALL OUR PRESENTS to each other – it’s the best. :D

        I love this idea :) So you live in Malta? For some reason I thought you were born there but living in London. I must be getting my bloggers confused!

          Yes! I lived in Durham (North England) for a year (until last October) – so that might be why you got a teensy bit confused! I’m back home in Malta now (although leaving for Durham again in an hour for graduation!) x

            Oh I see! I like Durham, I’ve actually been there as my Great Aunt used to live in Chester-le-street which wasn’t that far away. So when I used to visit her, I’d often do a day trip to Durham. I remember loving a jewellery shop there called Claires or something :)

            That’s so cool! It’s a beautiful little city :D

Let me know what you think! =)
