Party time

Have just stumbled in after having had a whale of a time at our annual office Christmas party. Drank loads of pink champagne because a) it was free and b) you can't get hung over from champagne...or so they say. Didn't interact much with anyone from work, least of all that wanker Jobsworth (who wore a f*cking red blazer to a black tie party!), but had brought my own posse of three lovely gay men of my acquaintance (1 Dutch, 1 West Indian, and 1 Brazilian). Spent the evening drinking, eating (there was a brilliant buffet), dancing and apraising the waiters and the sartorial choices my co-workers had made. Was still pleased about my own outfit of frilly black skirt and red wrap-around top à la Sharon Stone at the Oscars, even after I'd come to suspect that they must have had those flattering kind of mirrors in the fitting rooms when I'd tried it on in the shop yesterday. Must now stumble out of said outfit and into bed...Night night!

I did, much to my surprise. Part of it was the company, part of it the location (miniature town Madurodam in The Hague), part of it the excellent food and part the fantastic soul cover band playing until the early hours. I've had a good time, but this morning I do feel it in my bones and the balls of my feet -- my age is catching up with me!

Nah, I think I'll just go back to using my trusty old Canon -- that one's never let me down yet. I don't know why I ever let myself be persuaded I needed a digital camera in the first place.

Hooray for a Christmas tree! I haven't had time to put one up yet, but I think I might later in the week...I just hope that this year, the cats won't consider it their new climbing rack.

It's always wonderful when dreaded nights out turn out good fun!
