My New Years Eve

(viewed 2034 times)
So I've not updated in a while, mainly because my workload has gone crazy recently. I've got way too any projects on the go, and several presentations and the like coming up, but I'll try to stay more current too.These were from New Years Eve. We had a relatively quiet one round Sally and Simon's place, although we did manage to get through a significant amount of wine and champagne. It was pretty good all in all, but walking home at 5am in heavy winds, rain and snow was not so good.

Thank you sooooo much Dhamaka! I don't know what to say! I staggered home from the pub at the weekend to see this at my doorstop.Lisa was annoyed that I wouldn't let her try a jaffa cake until we were both sober the following morning, but I've now got her addicted :)Been too scared to try the 'heathen' flavours yet.Thanks again, it was a wonderful surprise! I'm guessing I have Crickson to thank for giving you my address as well.

Christmas Party.

So I don't normally use this site as a proper blog, but I thought it might be nice to write a bit today.

This has been my first Christmas outside of England and without my family. About a month ago I thought it might be a little bit crappy. A few of my fellow Brits were also here over the holidays so we decided to go snowboarding on Christmas to ease the pain. The weather was truly terrible, but there was still 3m of powder so we went anyway. I accidentally did my first black diamond run that day. May have been tempting fate a little bit; no visibility, snowing heavily, and it being Christmas day, but I got to the bottom with no broken bones (but a slightly sore coccyx).

Then in the evening I had a meal for all the other people I knew who would be away from home. My friend Julie wanted to cook the meal, with me hosting and making the desserts. In total we had 3 Germans, 3 Brits, 1 Chinese, 2 Quebecois an Aussie, a New Zealander and a 17lb turkey. It was a really nice evening actually, and the first proper dinner party I've ever hosted. Much more civilised than my usual parties. We did somehow manage to get through 16 bottles of wine and an entire bottle of port though. Anywho, hope everyone had a great Christmas however you celebrated.
