"Girl's weekend away" would connote an wholly erroneous impression of how we spent Women's Day. Although I certainly pulled my weight in terms of giggling and frivolous mirth (and thanks to Erica for the wine), for the most part, my team were exercising their abundant gifts of pragmatism and task-focus. No thanks to me, we successfully achieved our objective. A sample pasted below - for the rest, see facebook (I'll put them up as soon as I finish/give up on Villette). If you'll permit my sentimentalising, I'd like to add: I feel could not have found myself with more pleasant company... I even cherished a moment of two quiet (!) Contentment.
