Graham as Santa
At lunch time the group from work, or most of us anyway, pootled down to Bistro Pierre, for the first of my christmas do's for the day. The food was exquisite, i went easy on the wine, i did not get gravy down my top and i avoided sitting next to anyone who bores me. :)
It was a fun lunch, we even tried not to talk too much shop.
I then headed back to the office for an hour, before hopping on a train to Sheffield. From sheffield station i got a cab to the Holiday Inn, which is a beautiful old building, i should have taken photos of it, the architecture is lovely. The room was, well, roomy, and the shower was excellent. I changed into a dress (hey, it happens) and boots, and we headed down to the residents bar.
It was a huge room, and ewen engineering had three tables, and a tonne of wine. Mark's dad couldn't make it coz he was poorly which is a shame, but other wise it was all excellent. The people we sat with were lovely and i had a fabulous time, got very drunk, but not tooo out of control, and the food, was nice.
We finally headed up to bed at 2am ish, chatted for a while and passed out.
Saturday morning my conversation skills consisted of, "leave me alone my head hurts", "i'm dying", and "coffee, bring me coffee and lard". :)
A large cooked breakfast, juice and coffee late i was almost human and we visited Marks fam.
We got home saturday afternoon and dissapeared to the bedroom where we watched movies and slept. Emerging late sunday morning to get ready and head off with Tammy to a chinese in town where we were meeting Q69 and some friends for lunch. :)
A lovely if tiring weekend. Now i want to sleep.
