The first was a lunchtime celebration for just our part of the organisation at the AB Hotel in Glebe which was excellent. The food was very good. The service friendly. And despite the rain, many of us spent the afternoon in the comfortable outdoors courtyard. The second was the annual bash at Ultimo.
“You’re a real trooper on the dance floor”, one of the DJ’s said to me at one point during the night. He had obviously noted a couple of us spent most of the night on the dance floor. Well, aimed to spend most of the night on the dance floor, since some of the earlier music wasn’t all that danceable for a 43 year old man with an interest in Swedish pop music. “It’s 9.30”, I said to my colleague when the first really good song of the night kicked in. And from then on, it was two hours of solid dancing. Great fun.
The theme for this year’s party was “hats or wigs”. We went through the cupboards at work and found some old baseball caps and came as a group. Unfortunately, we didn’t win the prize for best costume. Next year, there’s hopefully a prize for “best group costume”.
And in between time I actually did some work too!
