SEPT Star Awards

Amongst all the birthday celebrations, at work there was also an awards IMG-20151118-WA0007[1]evening which my department were also involved in helping decorate the venue and helping out in the evening.

No one was really sure what to expect but all the crazy OCD arranging by those in the Communications team paid off as the whole event was a success enjoyed by all.

Dress Shopping

The evening dress code was 20151118_171654[1]black tie wear, I very rarely wear dresses, in fact the only dress I own was bright red! That didn’t quite fit in with the events or even staff dress code. This warranted a trip to Lakeside, most girls can spend hours shopping, neither me or my sister are one of those girls. So you can imagine how happy we were when the first shop we went in I tried on three dresses, liked two of them, bought them and they were in the sale! All that was left to get were some tights at our next stop not only did we find suitable tights but also a coat we both liked & fitted us perfectly. We both bought the coat in with the understanding we didn’t ย wear them at the same time when we’re together. That was it, shopping done in about an hour, off we went for dinner. Perfect!

Awards Ceremony

The awards evening itself was busy, the following day both teams involved in putting together the event were receiving thank you, no pay rise but we did get a box of chocolates ๐Ÿ˜‰

We all looked absolutely fantastic, in the words of one of the directors which was meant as a compliment I hope, ‘You all scrubbed up well’.

However I can honestly say I’m in no rush to go pixlr_20151119103838622[1]through it all again, the following day all of us who helped out looked like zombies. There was no amount of makeup that was going to help brighten us up. So you can imagine my reflief when the builders in the area cut through the water line to the building so we were all sent home early. When I eventually got home, straight to bed and that’s where I stayed until the following day!

  1. you got all you wanted in the first two shops you entered ?

    and you didn’t feel the need to check out another 2 dozen shops to be sure the same items weren’t on sale at a lower price elsewhere or another shop had a different dress and coat you liked equally as well, but at a lower price ?

    you’re a rare woman (or you didn’t have an auntie accompanying you on your shopping trip) ๐Ÿ˜†
