I stayed at work then donned my xmas jumper and shirt at the last minute. I walked to the bedford and Strand which was just off the strand whilst walking around hacking portals. I was pretty early when I went downstairs to the restaurant. Ross was in the xmas suit top. All the folks arrived and there was a good selection of xmas jumpers on display. I sat next to Leo, Claudia, annabelle, alison and Alan. I had turkey and xmas pud to keep things simple both of which were good. Some folks arrived later including Claire who was very self conscious in her xmas jumper and Ree. We moved on to the porterhouse and went downstairs where it was very crowded and a band was playing. Unfortunately it was only open till midnight. We looked at the Roadhouse which had a big queue then folks moved off to the Adventure bar, but I decided to catch the last train home.
