A Special Date the likes of which will not come around for another 88 years, we chose it to hold our Christmas Lunch in the office. After five years we have become very slick at this and within 15 minutes the office is transformed into a ‘dining hall’ with a substantial buffet of savoury and sweet items.
Non-alcoholic punch from Mercy’s cauldron
Delicious salmon starters
But we have three new members of staff since last year and they also excelled themselves.
After lunch we had our Secret Santa gifts, always good for a laugh. And this year we had an extra gift for Judith, who is leaving us at the end of the year. It was the biggest non-secret of the year, having been plugged on Facebook, but she was thrilled with her Jaci Hogan table mats and says that she will think of us every day at breakfast when she uses them.
And our special visitor was Kalani
with 6 week old Edward who was as good as gold, and was passed around the office to be cuddled.
And then out into the garden, still glistening from the heavy overnight frost for a group photo.
A very Merry Christmas to all our members, supporters and sponsors and thank you for all of your support during 2012.
