    Default Just seen my first notice outside a pub inviting me to book my Christmas party!

    Winner!


    Hmmmm. Better get them sprouts on this weekend just to avoid the chance of any flavour of texture remaining by the time the fat man comes.

    You just had to mention it didn't you?

    Now I'm fed up of Christmas even earlier this year than normal. Bah humbug.

    Went for a meal in one local to me on Friday. Saw a notice there. Was tempted to tear it up.

    TOH reported the first sighting of mince pies in the supermarket yesterday.

    Someone brought mince pies to a meeting yesterday. I'm still counting that as the back end of Crimbo 2017 TBH.

    Best before date on the box was 29th Oct.

    I've had 3 or 4 e-mails from hotels/restaurants inviting me to book my Christmas party/lunch/accomodation.

    Spotted a sign outside a pub two weeks ago recommending early booking for Christmas Staff Dinner.... bollocks to that, the sun is still shining and there is no snow on the ground.

    Last year TOH was tasked with making sure that the company Christmas dinner was booked in a Michelin star restaurant in Brum (Yes, they do exist), so she was on the phone booking in August. In November they phoned back to say a group had cancelled and would they like the chef's table, so she said yes.

    She left the company a few weeks after the meal*.



    * Not because of it obvs.
