It was our work Christmas party in Dundee last Friday. I missed it, as I was down in London. I suppose I could have gone to the London office Christmas party if I’d wanted to as it was on the same day, but I dined with my parents instead. The work Christmas parties aren’t my cup of tea — noisy, loud music, lots of drink, and heading off to a club at the end of the evening.

Instead I appreciate our team Christmas meal, which we organise ourselves. This evening our team dined at the Pizza Express in St Andrews; our team’s first meal south of the Tay. We started the tradition two years ago with a team Christmas lunch at Braes on Perth Road, and thought it was such a good idea that we’ve had a team lunch or tea every month since. So this was our twenty-fifth monthly team meal; I think I’ve been to twenty-three of them.

We’re also organising a work children’s Christmas party, which will be held on site in Dundee on the Saturday before Christmas. This is our first year of it; I hope it goes well. Seeing colleagues with their children will be fun. Beth is looking forward to it.

[livejournal.com profile] kateaw’s birthday is at the end of October. But I’m more interested in her birthday next year — it’s a Significant Birthday, so deserves a bit of planning for the party. Time to starting thinking of ideas!

I’m looking forward to election day. Every general election, I host a party from 10pm — the time the polls close — to watch history unfold through the night as the results come in. As usual we’ll be watching the BBC all the way; familiarity with their correspondants and their ridiculous election graphics help to make up for the annoyances.

Kate is unimpressed by the thought of watching politics and politicians on TV so she'll be having an early-ish night, but I should be joined by Andrew, Emma, and Mary. And election-themed nibbles.

Does any one else fancy a night of politics in reasonably social company?

While watching the 2005 coverage, Beth, then a very small baby, put one finger around my glasses and pulled them apart. From that point onwards the evening was a blur.

Sunday morning party, originally uploaded by tobyaw.

We took Beth to Action Zone in Leven this morning — it was the
birthday of one of her new class mates. Lots of fun, lots of running
about.
