Today was my lovely colleague Victoria’s last day at work before she goes off on maternity leave. She gave me a little box of Lindor balls and very sweet thank you card to say thanks for helping to host her baby shower the other week.
I’m really going to miss her in the office as she’s always so lovely and smiley, and loves a good gossip about The Apprentice and Made In Chelsea (essential “water cooler” moments!) It will be a sad time on Thursday when she’s not there to discuss the ins and outs of The Apprentice finale! (Still can’t decide whether I’m Team Leah or Team Luisa!) She’s going to make such a lovely mum and I can’t wait for her and baby to come back to visit!
It was so sweet of her to give me some chocs and a card as a thank you, and I’m so pleased she enjoyed the baby shower myself and 2 other colleagues planned for her! We all really enjoyed it and played a selection of games including The Name Game (where you have a list of meanings for the names of each person at the party and you have to match the right definition to the right name;) Baby Scramble (lots of baby related anagrams – a lot harder than it sounds, particularly if you know noing about babies like me!) and the Baby Animal Game (a quiz to correctly guess the baby name of several different animals). We had a lovely buffet, including as many pink treats as we could find (she’s having a girl) including Party Rings and Pink Wafers (still delicious as an adult!) and lots of pink champagne (cranberry juice for our mum-to-be) yum!
