    THANKFUL FRIDAY #5

    So I need to start by apologising that I didn't get this post up yesterday. Life has been so busy lately so here's a snippet of some of the things I've been up to....just a day late!

    1. FDBLOGGERS SECRET SANTA
    Some delicious home-made shortbread arrived from my lovely secret santa this week! I also saw a tweet from my Secret Santa recipient saying that they loved their present which has made me very happy indeed! Such a good idea Loriley...thanks for organising it!
    2. ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK
    If you read last week's post, you'll know I was sort of getting into American Horror Story. Abort mission. I am not about that show. It freaked me out too much so now I've started on Orange is the New Black and I am flying through the second season. You'll notice I'm pretty late to the party with all these series.

    3. LAST DAY AT WORK/CHRISTMAS PARTY
    So after 3 years, I left my job on Thursday. Not exactly one for my 'happy things' list as I was pretty sad to say goodbye but my leaving do happened to fall on our Christmas party which was an awesome way to say goodbye! We had it at Skandilicious- a nordic themed pop-up which I highly recommend you check out if you can! They also got  me a Hakkasan voucher for my leaving present - result!

    4. SECRET SANTA WITH THE GIRLS
    I've had the same group of friends since I was in primary school. We don't get to see each other too much any more (life, jobs, boyfriends, commitments) but we always do a dinner & presents at Christmas. Aren't they a beautiful bunch....
    5. WE HAVE A WINNER
    I ran a giveaway this week where you could get your hands on a copy of the SOLD OUT Manchester Cookbook! A winner has been picked and I can reveal the very lovely Josie Brownlee has a copy winging it's way over to her so congrats and enjoy!

    6. I HIT 20!
    I finally hit a DA score of 20 in the latest Moz update! I've been lurking around the 15 mark for AGES and decided to raise my game a little in the last few months so it's really nice to see it pay-off!

    7. SUNDAY ROASTS
    Last Sunday Tom and I went for a roast dinner with my parents and my nan. There's a really cute little pub in Wooburn Common called the Chequers Inn which does the best roasts...I'll be posting about it on here very soon!
    8.  BEST CHEESECAKE IN LONDON?
    Date night last Saturday was at Blacklock - post to follow next week so you can read all about it - but I have to let you know that the cheesecake there is INCREDIBLE. Thick white chocolate cheesecake, buttery biscuit and rhubarb....*Homer Simpson Drool*

    9. 1D CARPOOL KARAOKE
    One thing which probably hasn't come across much on my blog is how much I love One Direction. I'm at that wierd level of superfan where I have a cardboard cut-out of Niall on my desk..Anyway I'm super sad that they're going on a break BUT this episode of carpool karaoke has made me realise how brilliant they are!
    10. MEETING MY NEW TEAM
    So yesterday, I went to meet my new work team at their Christmas conference at the super-trendy Hospital Club in Covent Garden. I was a mix of all kinds of nervous and excited but they were all really lovely and I'm feeling a lot more confident about my first day in the New Year....so wish me luck!
