Friday Favourites, 28 August

Happy Friday everyone, I hope you’ve all had a great week! I have had a jam packed week with work; we had a conference on for most of the week which has meant late nights with evening functions catching up with clients and other staff from the company.

The conference. Though the conference was for most of the week I only got to sit in on a couple of sessions, the rest of it was working on my normal work and catching up with clients, but what I did sit in on was great, there’s some really amazing stuff that the company is working on and the clients were really intrigued by it.

Seeing clients. It’s not often that I get to see clients face to face, conferences like these are maybe once a year, and we work with some really amazing clients so it’s always great to see them face to face and especially be able to socialise with them and not just talk shop all the time.

50’s themed dinner. Tuesday night in particular was pretty special. The company put on an official conference dinner which was a 50s theme and they really went all out. There was a 50s band with some 50s dancers, a photo booth, a pinball machine, one of those hammer strength test things, even the decorations down to the straws were 50s, it was pretty cool!

Hanging out with work buddies. There are a couple of people I work with that are based overseas, and one in particular that I met in the flesh for the first time this week, and that’s one of the things I really love about these conferences. One of the guys even had his partner come over, so we did a bit of an intimate catch up with partners last night and got to socialise a bit more outside of work which was so great.

Downtime at home. The whole week has been busy and tonight is the first night that I’ve had to just relax at home, as amazing as that has been, it seems equally as amazing to be having a night at home. So I’ve got some chocolate and chips and I’m just going to binge watch TV and not move for a while!

I hope everyone else has had a great week, let me know in the comments below what the highlights of your week were!

Talk soon,
