The annual SSU staff Christmas party is one of my favourite events of the whole year. Glammed up for an evening of laughs, drinking and dancing-dancing at the Christmas do is the best, most fun dancing I’ve ever experienced-, the night away with wonderful friends and colleagues, old and new, celebrating Christmas and the end of another year.
Last night was another fun, memorable eve. I can feel the effects today but oh my it was worth it. I thought last year might have been my last SSU staff party and though I know I’ll leave the University soon, no idea how soon, to pursue a more meaningful job, I love these people and the Christmas party will always be one of the highlights. And if this was my last one, it was a great one to end with.
I didn’t take many snaps but thankfully my lovely Helen did, some of the photos I borrowed from. So here’s a little flavour.
The set up at Novotel was beautiful…
I sat between two of my favourite not just friends, but humans, Helen and Chris…
and at the same table with more wonderful friends (one of my top three snaps of the night, hah)
…and laughed and danced with this wonderful lot.
Shoutout to DJ Tracy (not real name, if anyone does know her name please comment!) who we all adored!
Special thanks to Helen, Jamie and Lou for organising another incredible Christmas do.
Now, time for Love Actually and chocolate!
