I’ve been finding it really hard to continue writing – I am using the time of year as a scapegoat! Friday was my first work Christmas party held in the HAC Royal Artillery Rooms, London. The venue itself was amazing, themed like a circus/fun fair with dodgems (one of which I flew out of because my friends think it’s funny to come at me from 3 separate angles!!) old school photo booths, a candy floss stand, a random school bus, show-girl performances and the whole venue was decorated with millions and millions of lights.
The night started with a champagne reception followed by apple and raspberry cocktails. Drinks were paid for and an hour after arrival we were served a three course meal, which hardly anybody actually sat for for being on the dance floor and at the bar, but at some point I went back for dessert (milk chocolate mousse with white chocolate flakes, raspberry sauce and caramel snaps – happy girl).
I would definitely recommend for corporate events/Christmas parties. Although such a prestigious venue, the evening was very relaxed but exquisite and glamorous – perfect for such a magical time of year! Jay Gatsby eat your heart out!
I met someone through work yesterday that introduced me to London College of Spirituality, had never even heard of it before http://www.meetup.com/londonspirituality/
I think it basically involves the use of self-help/attribution/development and teaches techniques for improvement in seminars around London. From a psychological point of view this could be really interesting. It’s free to attend and they are often looking for volunteers so anyone can go along and help with upcoming events. Check out the website!
I was supposed to meet a friend for lunch but got distracted…
I’ve only been to borough market a couple times and that was for grissini but I was passing through London bridge and thought fuck it. I couldn’t walk past this without stopping. (Not the first time my sweet tooth has got me in trouble.) I didn’t have enough money on me for a box, but I joked and said i’d mention him and the stall on my blog if he set me up…he took me seriously and gave me 1/2 kg for free:) (if you see this then thank youuuu your Turkish delight is amazing) So I shared with my friend for lunch instead, which I think made up for being late.
