So a 'committee' was formed this year to organise things (and wasn't that a great feeling to know that it took three people to replace me!?) and they've booked a really nice restaurant which seems to have met with everyone's approval and which we're all (mostly) going. And they've done the Secret Santa draw so that people get to buy each other presents.
When I was on leave.
So no secret santa for me this year... of course it also means I don't have to buy something for someone else either.
Bah Humbug, says I.
