So here it iiiiis…Merry Christmas 16/12/2007

As we approach the last stretch of the yule tide season shopping frenzy all us normal people are all slowly remembering that “one” family member we forgot to buy a present for! In the case of all the staff here thats not the story, we havent bought ANY yet! Though we say this every year “Ill start shopping in November” we clearly get hit with post summer amnesia and leave it all to the last minute every fec*in year!!!
One thing we didnt forget however (despite the sambuca), was The Avalon House christmas party on Wednesday!!!After a very civilised meal, classy wine and a joyful busride to Temple Bar all the staff let their hair down and danced the night away to all those cringe-worthy Christmas songs we all love to hate! There was even a staff rendition of the nothing-to-do-with-Christmas-whatsoever classic Eidelweiss led by choir-master Paddy!

So as its only 9 days til the big day-get a move on….Most of the good stuff is already sold out and no one is going to be impressed by a pair of crinkle scissors, a christmas jumper or vouchers on Christmas Day!Trust me!

In the wise words of Ms Carey … “Santa Claus won’t make me happy with a DEODORANT SET on Christmas day” (Original Lyrics, 1994)

9 days left baby!!!!!
