Woo hoo!! (Say that out loud, if you please.) We've made it to the weekend and Stuart and I are officially off work until January 3rd! I know it might sound a little indulgent to be off for so long, but happily a major benefit of working in the UK are the bountiful holidays! We don't have too much planned for this pre-Christmas week and that suits me - I'm thinking lots of going for coffee, time to go to the gym, some festive baking and cooking and a sprinkling of errands like house cleaning and getting the water pump changed on our car (yes, the saga of the Mazda continues!) Oh, and blogging, of course!
Had a good time at my work 'Christmas Do' yesterday (translation Christmas party.) I enjoyed much more than last year when I had only just started the job because now I know everyone very well. The food was no big thrill (think dark and smokey bar serving Christmas dinner en masse - 'nuff said) but it's fun to have a chance to have a good old gossip and get out on the dance floor with work friends outside of work where we periodically gossip but seldom dance. I had a very good time but left at a respectable hour before things had a chance to degenerate too badly. Afterall, we do all still have to work together!
