After months of gruelling prep and partaking in the most ridiculous interview process in the whole entire world (honestly, it’s been a joke) I am over the moon to report that my friends and I all have jobs for next year. Come September, we will be spread far and wide over the country in dental practices near you. Be afraid, be very afraid. I joke, I joke. It’s fair to say there’s been a lot of emotions flying around over the past week, a mixture of relief, excitement, nerves and the realisation that the real work now has to begin. It’s time to crack on and pass finals.
Before the work started again we took some time out to celebrate…in the only way we know how to, with food!!
On Sunday evening we found ourselves in The Grill on the Alley.
With all these 50% off January deals it’s very hard to say no at the moment…so my advice, don’t fight it. Just go with it.
We had a bit of a wait for food but the wait was definitely worth it. I went for a halloumi and roast veg skewer. I’m having a bit of a love affair with Halloumi at the moment. I can’t get enough of it.
With alllll the sides. Creamed spinach, garlic & pesto mushrooms and Poutine which is actually a Northern girls dream. It’s basically a posh way to say chips, cheese and gravy. Does it get any better?
Haze and Dad went for steak, which is actually Grill on the Alley’s thing. They have all different cuts and sauces to go with. Fran went for sea bass wrapped in lettuce which looked erm..different but she assured us that it was really tasty.
The food was actually really, really good so maybe one to add to the list of recommendations.
At first we weren’t going to have a dessert, then we decided we’d share one between us….but somehow we ended up with two..
Coconut Bakewell tart with salted caramel sauce & ice cream which was delicious. My fave I think.
Along with an incredibly rich chocolate and salted caramel pot. It was amazing but very, very chocolatey.
I’m so proud of us all but the more it sinks in the more it hits me that this chapter of my life is nearly over and what’s even more sad is that I won’t be living with these girls anymore. I’m not sure how we’re going to cope!
They’ve played such massive roles in my life these past 5 years. Sorry to get all sentimental, but I really do have sisters for life.
I’m not entirely sure why I’m talking as though I’m never going to see them again..100% we’ll be seeing each other every weekend.
But now let’s not get ahead of ourselves, we may have jobs but we still need to graduate!
Let the hard work begin..
