So on Saturday we had the regional Christmas party at work, which is basically a big bash all the managers from our local stores go to. AKA best night ever, as I get to see people from my old stores. Woo!
We had a meal to start with. Vegetable soup was the starter. The main was chicken for the meat eaters and I had the vegetarian dish, which was a puff pastry in some form of basil, tomato and olive filling. Much better better looking than the standard chicken. It kind of tasted like pizza! Veggie win!
Dessert was profiteroles. I never eat dessert so gave it away.
As always, there was free wine on the table, a quiz for us to win more wine, a raffle I didn’t win and a lot of dancing.
It was lovely to catch up with my old workmates. After much wine, I switched to lemonade. But then my old manager bought me a jager bomb. I blame him for the hangover I had when I woke up.
I was determined not to get one and took many precautions. I even had a sports drink by my bed to drink before I went to sleep and had loads of water, but I still woke up at 7am feeling horrible.
I had to check out of the hotel at 11am, the drive home was not fun! I left at 10am and then slept a couple of hours. Sunday was basically a massive waste of time as I had a headache the whole day.
I’m never drinking again. Seriously. Alcohol ruins me!
On another point, I’ve gone from never staying in a hotel on my own before, to staying in 3 hotels on my own in a few months. I feel like a proper adult.
