We were manager-less in the office today, and it was the day before the last day before we finish for Christmas, so we were feeling rather like children let out to play (well, I was) and did some things we wouldn’t normally do in the office.
In the morning we did a bit of carol singing. There are some good singers in our office, who can do descants and everything, so we sang ‘Good King Wencleslas’ all the way through (with appropriate voices for the king and the page), and a couple of verses each of ‘O Little Town of Bethlehem’ and ‘Hark the Herald Angels Sing’ with descant on the last verse.
In the afternoon a most of the office were out at a meeting, so someone decided to play some music through their mp3 player…out loud. It was a nice, if eclectic, mix of music and helped that part of the afternoon pass in a relaxed, civilised manner.
Tonight, a group of us librarians went out for food and drink. So, altogether, it’s been a good day for spending time with people I like very much, doing things I enjoy. Precious times.
