Woop, one more day of work!
Granted, I’m back again on Wednesday… but still, four days off – and not just any four days 🙂
We had our work Christmas lunch yesterday. I had a lovely chicken/leek dish with a cream sauce and although I had to suffer watching three colleagues make their way through the biggest mountains ever of delicious-looking banoffee pie (sample comment: “Sorry to say it Jonesey but this is EPIC” – thanks Adam!) it was brilliant.
We did our Secret Santa, from which I got this:
It was hilarious because nearly everyone (ours was just editorial) got alcohol, prompting lots of “what, journalists liking a drink, really?!” type comments. But the funniest was Mike.
He bought himself a onesey a while ago and although he’s never heard the last of it, he’s so pleased with it, he bought one, complete with hood, monkey ears and tail, for Andy the photographer. That would have been entertaining enough in itself – but Andy had drawn Mike and he bought him – a Father Christmas onesey! Genius, especially as Mike put it on. In the restaurant 🙂
I then met a friend for a couple of drinks in the evening – just to keep in the Christmas spirit – and when I got back, I found another present:
I’d seen a competition on Foods You Can a while ago. It’s a website for people with food allergies or intolerances and they were asking for people’s expeiences living with them. so I emailed off one of my typical rambles, forgot about it – and won!
A big hamper of free from goodies! Some old favourites, like Nakd bars and Rude Health, but also some things like the Nairns oat muesli and Booja Booja truffles, both of which I’d wanted to try… thank you!
And talking of Booja Booja, and the torture of watching my colleagues eat their banoffee pie yesterday, what sort did Foods You Can happen to send me?
Three sleeps to go! Are you off work yet?
