This week has been a good one, mainly having consisted of food, drink, food, drink and more food. We had our department lunch on Tuesday which swiftly turned into an all day affair. All ten of us graced Hanover Street Social with our presence - somewhere I had never eaten before but had been wanting to try for a while and I wasn't disappointed.
It was also Christmas jumper day yesterday in the office, so as well as donning our outrageous knits, the payroll team put on a pretty impressive buffet and continued to ply us with liquor!
Last night the girls and I had a little festive gathering involving a plethora of prosecco and exchange of gifts. The lovely Laura played host this year, and provided tasty nibbles before the most amazing satay chicken I have ever tasted <3 That girl is a culinary genius! And if that wasn't enough, she also put together what is possibly the most thoughtful gift I have ever received for us all - a little hamper full of homemade treats - chilli jam, choc chip cookies, poached pears and piccalilli but to name a few.
In amongst the merriment I also continued on my search to find some more perfect pieces to help make a house a home - managed to find this copper floor lamp from Made and fell in love. And, in amongst it all I also found time to pick up the cutest little spruce for outside the front door this year.
I've been continuing with therapy which I'm actually starting to enjoy :) and I've even started getting into meditation - something that I didn't really think was for me up until recently. Whenever I start to feel a little anxious, I just take ten minutes for myself and try to zone out/think about nothing - originally it was difficult but I'm definitely getting better at it. Little steps in the right direction.
Like the picture says - 'focus on the good'. By doing that I think the things you want - and fingers crossed, even better things, will come.
