No hangover, man-flu got the better of me so really didn't have a lot to drink. Food was excellent, even not being a fish fan, the salmon steak and monkfish starter was pretty good. The main course was fillet of beef. It was perfect, the pudding was Seville marmalade ice-cream in chocolate pouches, which had a nice tangy taste to it. Got home just after 2, and for life of me could not get to sleep.
On the awards themselves, our boy did good and scooped the young technician of the year. So well done to him! Sir Ian Wood of Wood Group got a special lifetime achievement award for services to the Oil & Gas industry.
Then there was the nut job. Yes the woman who won the mentoring award went of on a bizarre acceptance speech journey. I think there were a few who wished a ceiling light would fall from the sky and knock her out. If she mentioned Shell of Mentee's one more time I think there would have been a murder.
