Work Christmas Dinner :)

Hello again everyone! The past few weeks have been hectic, so much has gone on. What with it being the end of the term, I’ve had what feels like a million assignments to do, as well as attending Christmas activities, and buying Christmas presents for people (which I actually still haven’t done…) there just aren’t enough hours in a day!
What did feel like a million assignments is actually in reality only 8, which although might not sound a lot, but in total consisted of around 18,000 words! I have finally managed to get 7 of them done and out of the way and fully submitted, with only one left to go. I think the main reason that I managed to finish some of them earlier than the due date was due to the library being my home-away-from-home for the past few weeks.
Anyway, I shan’t bore you any longer with my dire tales of assignments! Last week it was the Enquiry Unit’s Christmas dinner, and the leaving drinks of one of the full time members. It was actually a really fun night, and the first time I’d ever been to Giraffe. The food was a bit out there, but it was actually really tasty, and the waitress was as mad as the rest of us. We also managed to convince people to go to Sparrows afterwards, and it was a really entertaining *ahem* drunk night, especially when it started snowing inside! On Sunday, the people in my flat, and the one below, had our Christmas meal. This meant cooking a Christmas dinner for 17 people! I shall leave that one to your imagination. It was a great night and we all ate far too much food.
As you all know, I go to Starbucks far too often, but when I go there, I always get given money off vouchers by the people who work there. This means that now when I go to Starbucks, I can get my normal drink that is a pumpkin spice latte, which is normally £3.30 for a grande, for £2.80! And that’s including the extra shots of espresso I get for free. Despite what has been said about Starbucks about the whole not paying their taxes fiasco, they still are an excellent company in my opinion, and for all the while they are still around, I will continue to take my custom there.
I hope you all have an amazing Christmas, and a happy New Year, and I look forward to seeing you all again in 2013!
