I finished my job today. No, I didn't steal the stapler, but I did leave with a lovely bunch of flowers, a couple of new friends and the confidence-boosting knowledge that my abilities are well regarded by others (more so than they are by me most of the time). Oh, and a skinful of champagne.
I also met the woman whose job I was offered in another department - she just happens to be leaving to join the same firm I'm going to.
A friend took me out for dinner tonight to Guiseppe Arnaldo & Sons at Crown. It was a beautiful balmy night and the windows were open on to the promenade. I had minestrone and steak with rosemary & garlic potatoes. I ate four whole roasted garlic cloves, which I squeezed out of their skins. I don't know why, but I like squeezing garlic cloves out of their skins. (Lucky I won't be kissing anyone tomorrow.)
To finish I had a blood orange granita with sweet cream - it was just like eating a Splice icecream. Yum.
* I've decided I'm going to do NaBloPoMo again. I've been posting every day for a few weeks and planned to keep going, so why not?
