Freezer freezing again. We won't need to buy a new one this year, yay!

Today is our building holiday party.

The menu includes almond crusted salmon, apricot brandied roast pork loin, teriyaki marinated chicken breasts, barbecue flank steak, potatoes, fruit salad, dinner rolls and assorted desserts, plus beverages.

Next time I post my keyboard will be sticky.

Mail me some of that salmon, will you?

We have our party tomorrow...go to one of my co-worker's house. Boss Boss buys beer. Hilarity ensues.

Would you settle for fish bones and wish bones?

We had our department party last night, and our firm party is tomorrow. I'll skip the firm party and go home to trim the tree.

There's something vaguely Freudian about that last statement.

That's what she said.

In addition to lots of good food, I just had a Coke, a piece of chocolate cake, and now I'm having a Dr. Pepper. So much for reducing sugar intake.

But I'm happy.

I have had a wonderful three days (Monday 08.00 til Weds 21.00)
And I will focus on that.

Empty house Monday. I cleaned it top to bottom, felt fantastic.
Despite not flushing, the porcelain of the toilet is pure white and gleaming thanks to half an hour hard scrubbing.

HM finally accepted my apology for a disagreement we had Friday (I apologised Saturday so it was a relief)
Met friend from Leicester off the train on Tuesday and showed her London for two days. Had two lovely meals - Italian and Chinese buffet. She bought me a cool hat (look, she wanted to buy me BOOTS, I was lucky to barter her down to a 10 hat!) Lots of talk and laughs and friendship.

And we saw Crowded House on the last date of their tour (tickets booked back in Sept). At the Albert Hall, which has the most incredible acoustics - Neil talked to us without mike to prove it although I knew having sung there. It's also a great place for flight, so he encouraged those in the gods to make paper aeroplanes and there were some spectacular flights.

They were fantastic. Of course. Made me laugh, cry, sing my heart out.
And afterwards I talked to two men who had originally been seated next to us (but had the wrong seats) who had followed them the whole leg of the European tour. And it was fun talking to real fans, but the real delight was afterwards Tezza saying my face really lit up when I talked to them - it seems I am healing after all.

AND all day Tues I had 1 pint and one glass of wine, despite more being offered and available.
And all day Weds I had 2 pints, see above.
I can control it in the right situation and with the right people.

And we walked for miles and Tez couldn't stop remarking on the improvement in my appearance, health and my happiness.

Lovely, lovely, lovely.

Oh AND (I have had such a lucky time!) I am going to get on a six week alcohol counselling course either 31 December or the week after (1st week of Jan, whatever date that is). So I will get to do it within my current signed off period and can give the Job Centre a specific date for me being ready, willing and able to seek work and attend all their workshops and course etc without having to get another sick-note.

Free coffee in the cafeteria for Christmas. Sometimes it's the little things. :)
