What a week! I’ve left my current job, start my new job today, and the brother & I found ourselves a new flat!! Keep reading for the full details.
Last Wednesday I had a mini leaving dinner with some of the office guys. We headed to Las Iguanas after work for delicious tapas and yummy cocktails, which taste even better during Happy Hour!
Last Day at Work
Friday was my last day of working at Cygnet Hospital in Beckton. My colleagues surprised me with banners, a big card signed by everyone, and a £100 Ticketmaster voucher! I celebrated when I got home with some prosecco and sleep – it had been a hectic week! Today I start my new job with Expat Explore and I couldn’t be more excited!
Happy Birthday James!
It was James’s birthday over weekend and I celebrated with his family over a scrumptious spread made by his Mum. For dessert we had our choice of 4, yes 4 (!), birthday cakes! I also got to finally reveal my big birthday surprise for him; 2 nights in Dublin at the end of March! I’ve been before, but if anyone has any recommendations, send them my way please.
New Flat Secured!
On Saturday my brother & I viewed a couple of flats to rent South of the river. On Monday we got the call to say we had been approved for our chosen new home!! In just under 3 weeks time I’ll be moving to Sydenham. Here’s the crazy part; Erica Instagrammed this colourful shutter 2 weeks ago. Turns out my new flat is just through that bright yellow door and up the stairs!
Happy Birthday James Part 2!
James had Monday booked off so I planned (sort of, not. I just winged it) a day of post-birthday fun. We started with lunch a Frank’s, followed by Trainspotting 2. Then we headed up to the Queen of Hoxton‘s rooftop wigwam, Skye Halla, for warm cocktails, before tubing it back to mine for a takeaway pizza and Netflix.
So, that was my week. What have been your #HumpDayHigh5’s?
