I have not seen Love Actually YET, but last night, I did watch Forrest Gump and Steel Magnolias at the same time! I just kept flipping back and forth between channels...because I am trapped in my bed with a wicked cough.
The tree is up, we have to wrap presents today, and my work at work is pretty much done.
Our holiday party was Thursday at a small but elegant restaurant. It was crowded (200!) but wonderful. People seemed to have had a great time (did you know I'm in charge of the holiday party? I have the wonderful help of my friend K each year and, I must admit, this year I delegated more responsibility to her.
We had Wellfleet oysters and delicate tendrils of octopus with lemony potato and barley porridge in the loveliest setting a short walk from the office. Youngest joined us (wearing the antlers he's been wearing all month) and had a cocktail (he's five months from legal) and met one of his graphic design idols.
Two more days of work and then I'm off for the holiday.
