Friday was the day of our office Christmas Do, each day I'd been checking the forecast for snow just in case I'd had to make some urgent changes to my planned outfit. I'm usually so organised that I've got my outfit sorted by November! This year, I bought a black lace dress, a bit fifties-style for the festivities and with no sign of snow, I was good to go.
The dress had a lovely lace pattern and I accessorized with red shoes, a black feather corsage and a sequin black shrug and of course, thick black opaque tights.
We had a gorgeous meal at a local restaurant Go Greek where the majority of us had Mezze which was lovely. It definitely made a change for the normal hotel party fare of turkey and the trimmings. From homemade pitta and humous, feta and spinach parcels to succulent roast lamb that fell of the bone (we have over seven dishes to try), everything was yummy, washed down with Greek beer and Rose wine.
Then it was off to Blackpool Town centre for more wine and a bit of dancing . . . then the snow came. We had to then stay in the bar a little longer for more wine and more dancing but who can argue with that!
After a couple of sambucas I was ready to brace the cold night, luckily there were a few taxis about so I managed to get home before midnight but unlike Cinderella I didn't manage to lose a shoe!
