For those that don’t know me too well, this is my all time favourite band. It’s a rare thing for me to settle on a top favourite, a number one, a pinicle of the best! But for bands, it’s The Cat Empire, no questions asked. I’ve had these tickets since April, and you might thinkContinue reading “10/12/2012 – I finally saw The Cat Empire!”
We’ve had this day planned for what feels like months now… A marvellously Christmas Day going around Winter Wonderland, and oh did it not disappoint! Sadly the ice skating was all fully booked up, but we decided to go on the big rides instead which we’re great fun! We drank mulled wine on the merry-go-roundContinue reading “09/12/2012 – Steph and Claire’s Christmas Day!”
I had a nice day today, finally got back into running and went for a 6k run!

This team building was a lot different to segwaying with the guys as we went out for a lavish meal instead atContinue reading “06/12/2012 – Team building, take two!”
It’s all getting Christmassy now! My manager whipped out the decorations today and I made my PC and bamboo festive! A resident snowman has also set up camp for the winter months.
There’s something so calming about winter. If you ignore the hectic delays the weather can cause, and the illness.. yadda yadda bah humbug. Then you find that orange glow a December morning brings, or the silence of snow – my two favourite things about this time of year.
Claire and I were reunited today at long last, and she brought Christmas with her in the shape of our small, yet beautifully formed Christmas tree and decorations! It now sits with pride of place on our table.
I’m back in work tomorrow and thus will have to man up, for now though, my bed is still my best friend! Here’s my view for most of today as I slowly watched the sun go around…
I’m still tremendously jet-lagged, marvellous! But hey, look at my fancy jammies, guess where I got them?! Oh and I still haven’t unpacked..
