OK, due to demand from some colleagues, here’s a review of the work Christmas party last Friday (the food side of things, anyway)…

I won’t name the place we went to for fear of embarrassing them. I have been there a few times before and the food is normally very good.

The Christmas dinner was done as a carvery. We would all queue up, like we were collecting school dinners to get our meal. Normally this would be fine, but school dinners cost £1. This meal was almost £25…

I wasn’t too impressed with the food. I was only given one sausage and three slices of turkey. The vegetables tasted like they were from a tin. For £25, I expect my peas and carrots to be hand grown by Hugh Fernley Whittingstall, not hand delivered by Dwayne at Radco. And I only got one sausage.

My stuffing was more like dog food, the turkey dry (although that’s probably normal) and I was only given one sausage (sorry, did I mention that already?)

The starter (tomato soup) was very nice; although as it was so spicy, it was more like a curry which has been put in a blender. Chris, who is yet to sample an Indian more spicy than Chicken Korma, struggled to finish his.

After the main course, I had ice cream. Nothing special, but to be fair, I could have gone for more exotic choices. Ice cream is ice cream, and while you can buy it in Somerfield, it made me happy.

Despite all this, a lot of people were pleased with their meal and we all had a good night. I suppose I’m just a miserable bastard who doesn’t really like Christmas dinner at the best of times. Maybe next year I’ll have curry, pizza or just stick this in the microwave…

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
