After work most of our staff headed up to one of the local pubs for wings and drinks. Now, I usually decline. It is not easy to just up and leave a starving family at home while head off to the pub. And sure, they really can look after themselves but there is this huge guilt thing about taking off to a pub after work, let alone leaving my family foodless.
But, tonight we were saying goodbye to the student who has been with us for the last six weeks or so, and he has been good to have around the office. How could I not want to say good bye in style?
I am glad I went. The kids survived and I had a nice glass of wine and some delicious lemon pepper wings.
Now – off on my bike to work those greasy little things off!
