It was a fantastic day at work - I love my colleagues and the work I do. I don't blog about my 9 to 5 job at all, but today warrants a blog!
I work as an events planner/writer to enhance the social fabric and corporate engagement within my organisation. It is often a lot of fun and I work directly with and meet a wide range of great people. I think it's such a rewarding job. I have made wonderful friends, including some who I only talk to on the phone and have either not met or have only met once or twice. That's the beauty of working in such a large organisation.
The day started off with special end of year breakfast out at a cafe where I was treated to a yummy breakfast of field mushrooms, goats cheese and guacamole on sourdough with a side of salmon, and juice. This picture does not do it justice. The pink filter is on? My breakfast was soooo good!
Brownies - thanks S! So rich!
And asparagus and brie tart - a great way to use up my leftovers before the holiday...
At lunch (when we DIDN'T eat) my colleague M and I saw this performance at Melbourne Central.
A flash mob choir - the Skin Opera. It sounded amazing - unexpectedly because of the vastness of the shopping centre. It was pretty special to see and hear!
Cock Tales podcast - I had never met Anna but she recognised me because I am good friends with her podcast co-host Scott (as featured on previous blog entries such as this one). We hugged and chatted for a while, and decided we need to have a drink together.
I also received something wonderful in my mail box - hand delivered tonight!
Vogue Forums Kris Kringle gift from Esz at Kitty's Drawings. Sorry for the blurry photos.
When I returned home, I received a heads up that this video is now on YouTube
Thank you Peterdaicosisgod for recording and uploading it! It brings back great memories of my favourite gig of 2010.
And finally in other great news I received an email at work to say I've won an award, to be presented in January 2011. I am honoured.
Today was a wonderful day to end my working year. :)
I hope you all have/had great last days at work before the Christmas break, and that if you are working over the Christmas period, that your days are good. A special shout out to the emergency service workers and charity workers who forgo Christmas day celebrations with their families to help others.
PS: thank you to everyone for being so supportive and encouraging about my previous blog entry about sex. It certainly took some deep breaths and courage to write and publish! I am glad some of you can relate, and that it's provided a new perspective for others. Your comments have made me think a lot too.
PPS: this blog just turned over 100,000 visitors in just over a year. Well 11 months as I only started the stat counter in January. Thank YOU!!
