Bah Humbug!!

I'm sat here on a friday afternoon, (no POETS Day make & mends in the NHS), sun streaming through the window, surrounded by catalogues from Catering suppliers trying to sort out a Christmas menu.

P1ssed off or what! Only 90 minutes to go

Many years ago, at HMS Forward in the early 1990s, I was Killick of the Mess. The JR Mess at the time had a tradition of having Mess Dinners twice a year. One year we decided that we'd do something different and for the summer dinner, Christmas came early - turkey, pud with brandy sauce, crackers, decorations, tree, cards, the lot!

Our caterer really came up with the goods and supplied everything. We'd managed to keep the theme a secret from everyone so the reactions of people when they went into the mess to find Christmas were brilliant - a great night!

The sun is streaming through the window as I sit typing this during my very, very late lunch break. Outside is the Treasury. Inside icicles are suspended from the ceiling (bliss) and I'll be leaving at 1600, having left at 2030 last night! :D
