The last picture made me laugh as I was directly my friend to take a picture of my shoes! I think she's done a pretty good job of these photos don't you? Are you around next week Jay?!

I said goodbye to London yesterday for a little while as my office is moving to Colchester the middle of next week. It was very sad as London is pretty much the centre of my universe, anyone who knows me will tell you I don't stop singing it's praises! I don't think anywhere else even comes close to it's charm. I love constant goings ons, the busy and noisy roads, the amazing foodie scene, the beautiful buildings and even the grubby backstreets that you find after hours of wandering around. I'm going to make much more of an effort to drink in all the sights over the weekends. I'll certainly miss my monthly travel card and think a pay as you go oyster will give me a bit of a shock. But saying that I'm ready to embrace the Essex move with open arms and looking forward to getting to know the area. I've never really ventured that far in Essex before so there will be lots of new places to explore. I'll have to get reacquainted with the countryside. After 18 months in the city I've forgotten what greenery looks like!

Tonight i'm having our annual Christmas get together with my friends and we're off to a Chinese with Karaoke! It will be so much fun and I'm practicing the spice girls songs to belt out. We decided to go with something a little different this year as you eat so much turkey over the festive period before you turn into one!
