The office Christmas party!


It’s that time of year again! The company I work for usually has a good Christmas event. If you’ve dipped into this blog before, you might know that I like dressing up (yes, take that idea and stretch it as far as it will go). For work purposes though, I think a Dinner Jacket and Black Tie is the most appropriate. One colleague has actually suggested I go as my female self, and while that’s an amusing option, I think it would just leave folks (?more?) confused.

As usual, I’ll probably be one of only two or three people who Tux it, but what the hell! It’s not often we blokes get a chance to get really smart, and a work suit doesn’t really cut it, does it?

Anyhow, it’s great because the kids are going to stay with their grandparents so D can come and join me. It must be quite daunting going to your partner’s company Christmas do when you barely know anyone there. I know it is…I’ve done it once before, a long time ago. I accompanied D and was surrounded by a lot of girls talking shop, quite literally. I did enjoy it, but I did feel a bit like an outsider.
