It’s the week of office Christmas parties. I’m going to two this year.
This is the week of office Christmas parties. As I do two jobs, I have two to go to, which in theory is a Good Thing. However, I feel kind of guilty not working flat out when I only do three or two days at each one. Plus, of course, there is still the same amount of work to do. Combined with this is the round of school plays, carol concerts, pyjama and popcorn days [just found out about this one], maths and science master course, etc, etc. Apparently the pyjama day was for rebel daughter’s class being exceptionally good. However, rebel daughter has no pyjamas which could be described as a) respectable [ie not missing several buttons] or b) winter wear [she is currently in cut-off summer gear]. This means the projected date of buying her winter pyjamas may have to be brought a couple of weeks forward. As the pyjama and popcorn day is on Thursday, when I have switched my days around on Wednesday to incorporate an office xmas party on Thursday, this leaves a very small window tomorrow before bonkers daughter’s Joseph extravaganza to buy said pyjamas.
