Well after posting everyday for the 18 days we were in Chicago I missed the tail end of August to give you all a rest from my ramblings. Then after just the one post in September where i chirped on about my eldest sons opening of his new restaurant Urban Burger Bar in Altrincham I’ve now decided to put a fresh post up.
Its now the Sunday before Christmas 2014 & all the gifts have been bought, wrapped & sent off to Father Christmas ready for the festivities in just over 3 days time. Will we have been good enough to be rewarded with gifts this year? I hope so.
Both Mrs C & I have had our work Christmas parties which i can advise went down very well indeed.
The following day at my office was a little quiet as several of my colleagues had already finished for the Christmas break, I unfortunately have not been so lucky as i’d used a large portion of my holiday entitlement when we were in Chicago. However I’ve only got 1.5 days left in the office as i finish on the 23rd at lunch-time. I’m not back into work though until the 5th January 2015 😀
The reason for finishing on Tuesday lunch is because we’ve got the gathering of the old boys for curry, chips & rice along with a couple of beers at The Rising Sun, just off Deansgate Manchester. Its been a while since we all met up & is long overdue. I’m sure we’ve got plenty of stories to pass on to each other so the gossip should be worthwhile.
Christmas Day this year will be a quieter affair compared to previous years as there will only be 5 of us for lunch but I’m sure we’ll have a blast. Boxing Day will be when the rest of us catch up as its Mums birthday so we are lucky that we get to extend Christmas Day over two days of exchanging presents, drinking & eating with the precious people in our lives.
So until next time have fun & stay safe
