9 days to go! As of about an hour ago I finished my Christmas (and multiple birthday) shopping. Phew! So there’s been a lot going on in the last couple of weeks. At Slimming World I put on 3 and a half pounds in one week then promptly lost it the next week. It’s a funny time of year where there’s all of the food around. I’m being good but treats are not being denied.

My parent’s came to visit and we went to Gino D’Acampo’s restaurant in the Corn Exchange in Manchester. I had the seafood spaghetti and it was delicious. Topher and I also split a chocolate fondant cake which was pure heaven. Another meal out was for Topher’s birthday meal. We went to Red’s True Barbecue which I can only describe in one word as “meat”. Definitely not a vegetarian friendly place! It was really nice but I didn’t enjoy it as much as I thought I would. It was pretty much my fault due to my eyes being forever bigger than my stomach. Oh well! Lesson learned yet again. The rest of his birthday was pretty chilled. He just wanted to play his new Final Fantasy game so I just let him get on with it. And of course there was cake.

We went to Topher’s work Christmas do which was interesting to say the least. Let’s put it this way, it was in a snooker hall which is based in the car park of his work. Enough said! I’ve actually got a couple of Christmas do’s myself which I totally wasn’t expecting being freelance. But the Freelance Friday co-working meetup I go to most weeks is having both a meal next week and drinks tonight. Score! I can’t say enough how happy I am that I found this group back in April. It’s been the key form of support I’ve had this year where I’ve met amazing people and I now have an awesome career path.

How was your fortnight?
