Yesterday the builders moved in to renovate my old and future office. This morning when I went in after my day off, the wall was down already and they were onto the painting. The new Marketing Emporium is enormous! And going to be so nice with the fresh, bright, paint, new carpet and furniture.

Today was the first time that the new Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences marketing team was complete and all in the same room at the same time. So we all went to lunch to the Brookes Restaurant

Winter squash soup
pomegranate salad with spiced molasses dressing and caramelised onion bread

Roast breast of Wiltshire turkey
pressed leg, stuffing, sausage and bacon with a port and redcurrant gravy

Chocolate Christmas pudding
brandied plums and vanilla seed ice cream

Managed even to get a new website live before lunch, and do some more work after! 🙂
