Hello all my readers (all 10 of you) :-), I do apologise for my blog being late, however I am currently in the UK. I’m here as I have a couple of Christmas Do’s to attend. Yep the Christmas feeling is starting to take hold, the Christmas songs are starting to be heard and the drinking and eating has commenced. Last night was my “agency’s” do, in York. Fantastic night was had by all, we started the day by doing a Great Escape (http://www.gr8escapeyork.co.uk/) – we did the New York room, it’s a huge amount of fun. Basically you are in a puzzle room (ours was based around an apartment) and we needed to find the puzzles, solve them and eventually find the Manhattan Diamond. You have an hour in which to do this. It was a great, we just made it with around 2 seconds to spare.
We then went on for a drink and to dinner which was lovely. Though my table were a little perplexed when one of the girls went to the bar after our meal and I asked for a peppermint tea rather than something containing alcohol. Which is part of the reason I’m up this morning, bright eyed and bushy tailed, as I didn’t drink too much, but had a great time. Only problem, where we were for dinner was loud and I really struggled to raise my voice above the noise – not because the noise was too loud – just because I’m still having issues with my voice from my operation.
So what else have I been doing in wonderful York, I’ve met one of my clients, the most amazing woman. I did some clothes shopping, however that did have to be limited as I only have a small suitcase to take back to France. But mostly it has been good fun. Today I head south as I have another Christmas party to go to. It’s one of my clients, and since one of the people I work with closely is leaving, I really want to attend to see everyone (and it has been a couple of years) and to say good bye to my colleague.
I must admit, as I was waiting for the plane to leave at Limoges and watching the snow fall (the first snow for the winter) I did wonder if I was going to get to the UK! It has also snowed here in York, but thankfully by yesterday it was all gone.
I do have to apologise for the lack of extra living room photos, I thought I had taken some before I left France, but I must have done so on Pat’s camera. He does have a good set on his blog from last week. But here is a photo of the River Ouse in York yesterday, where there was a rowing completion happening.
For now à bientôt and remember Pat’s blog next week – http://patblog.patbell.co.uk
