What I didn’t expect was to be dragged off to the pub, well the Harvester, for a leaving do at lunchtime. The person who is leaving is the same age as me but has been at the company for a staggering 32 years. Wow. Her leaving bumps me up the long service list.
I wouldn’t have minded but I wanted to go to M&S to look for a Quorn Roast. All part of the extra excitement that Christmas brings.
L says she wishes someone would drag her to the pub. She knows I’m always happy to drag her to the pub. So much so that I think sometimes she gets sick of me dragging her to the pub. No pleasing some people.
My evening is spent in the Brunswick struggling with the sea of dark beers that are available e.g. Barlow Ebenezer's Christmas Porter, Bradfield Farmer's Stout and Crate Porter plus their own beers.
I’m with four friends I’ve known since school although one of them is two hours late due to having gone out carol singing. All part of the extra excitement that Christmas brings.
