The sales conference has been held in Melbourne for the last two years and it means that I get to see some of the best people I've worked with and play with! So on Saturday we caught up with J-Cray, Kat and Karen at Gazi for a long, late lunch. They had been out partying on the Friday night so a 2:15pm meeting time seemed the right thing to do. We had a great meal...Bloody Marys, Espresso Martinis, wine, beer, souvlaki, doughnuts, roast chicken, chips, cheese...all those wonderful things gathered in one place for a few hours! And the delightful George Calombaris also swung by for a kiss on the cheek and a hello!
After so much food we needed to walk off the excess and as day turned to dusk we headed northwards and frequented a few rooftop bars, sat around a few heaters, drank a few jars before finishing the night with KFC!
I loved the enthusiasm everyone had for Melbourne and how easy it was to be in each other's company, Kat came and left, Louise joined in and brought Rachel whom we'd never met before, we saw Simon in KFC and it was all just so fun and easy. Pleasure to see everyone again and here's to next year...
I dragged him out though for a quick explore in the CBD as I'd read about a little craft market that I wanted to see and it was cute and worth the journey. We picked up some yummy home made cakes too before lunch and a supermarket shop.
Since then we've come home and just had a lazy day and now looking forward to roast chicken for dinner! Weekends are just sooooooo gooooood!
