I don’t know why my new work put off their Christmas party until February but I was grateful for the opportunity to get to know everyone outside of work yesterday.
I was unsure if I should wear my black dress so I tried it on in front of Helios. He said I looked great and when I asked if he thought it was too low-cut, he simply said “boobies”! The dress nearly went back in the wardrobe! I knew that everyone else would be dressing up so I decided to scare the natives with the sight of my cleavage!
We had nearly a full day at work – we all left the office and caught the 3 pm train into London.
We started off at Brown’s in London with “Afternoon Tea” which consisted of a choice of tea (I chose Rose – which was delicious), finger sandwiches without crusts, scones with jam and clotted cream, and a variety of pretty finger cakes. This wide variety of carbs arrived in a tower of plates that were replenished accompanied (in my case) with a glass of pink champagne. It was all terribly civilised and frightfully English. I really enjoyed myself. I don’t often get to behave like a lady and do something that I would consider to be “refined”. After we couldn’t possibly eat any more, we took a short walk to another hotel for cocktails and water.
I knew I’d be suffering a bit today. Of course, I am. Not only do I have a little headache, I also feel even more dry and hot vaginally than I have done over the past few weeks. I will have to be doubly strict with my diet over the next few days to feel more normal.
I’ve been told that the vaginal pain comes because I have low oestrogen levels (which is related to my PCOS problem) but my most recent specialist insisted that my birth control would give me more than enough oestrogen – but clearly that’s not entirely the case… I’m starting to think that the only answer I’m going to find is that there isn’t a balance and I have to decide which symptoms I can most easily live with on a day to day basis.
It’s not good enough, is it?
Sorry, I started off this entry bragging about a Xmas party in February and I’ve ended up having another moan. I’ll have another glass of water now and go back to bed.
