Tonight was my Welcoming Home party, as Gemma put it.

It has been a couple of days now, since Gemma and I have had lunch, and now I was getting ready for the party held in my honour.

I'm not the type of person that likes a lot of attention. Growing up I was quiet reserved, hence why I had limited friends.

I would never flaunt myself in from of boys growing up, even now I don't really go out if my way to make sure guys notice me. Yes, I have had boyfriends through Secondary School, and Uni. While traveling around Africa, I had a few flings but nothing too serious.

I guess, I don't know how to do relationships. That's why the ones I did have, didn't work out.

Even now, I'm not really looking for a boyfriend. I now need to find a job here in London. It's going to be a little hard because I doubt any schools will be looking for any teachers at the moment, it's in the middle of the school year.

For my outfit for tonight I didn't want to dress up too much, I showed, washed my hair, blow dried it, and I got my curling wand to give my medium short hair a bit of a curl. If curling wast such an effort I would curl it all the time.

With my makeup, I wanted simple. I prime my face, them put my Maybelline cushion foundation on. I then use a little bit of my Maybelline contouring kit. I wanted my eyes a little smoky so I use I black pencil eyeliner and smudge that around my eyes to give me a smoky look, also adding mascara.

It was nearly time to go meet everyone at the pub. I booked an Uber, now I just wait for it to arrive. I was a little nervous about tonight, I was meeting Gemma's boyfriend Michael, having all the attention on me didn't sit well with me.

I receive a text about the Uber being at the front of my apartment building.

I get my bag, my keys and take the elevator down to the Uber.

By the maps it's going to take up hour to the restaurant.

The restaurant that Gemma booked was called Marianne. Named after the chef Marianne Lumb. According to Gemma she reached the finals in MasterChef the Professionals series 2, and she said she has a cookbook.
