Ah! Can you feel that cool breeze coming off the water? It was lovely to feel it this morning after a weekend so hot and humid I thought I would be pickled.
On Saturday night we went to Hayden's work Christmas party. The theme was 'Tropical Paradise', and they definitely got the tropical part right. It was an extremely sultry night, and you'd sweat just standing still holding a drink. But very fun indeed - definitely the best one we've been to so far. At past work functions we've been sat in tables of ten through a groaning three-course meal before being dragged onto the dancefloor. (I hate being asked to dance by Hayden's work colleagues. Especially on a full stomach. So awkward.)
But this time it was a real grown-ups party with waiters and drinks trays, a wild range of hors d'oeuvres and a serve-yourself oyster bar. There were live bands, fire-twirlers and a mini casino where I won quite a bit of money playing poker. It was fake money of course. But still.
