Whisky Society and A Party Overrun by Small Children

Posted on 2009/12/25 16:26:19 (December 2009).

[Sunday 13th December]
Quite a lazy morning slobbing around the flat. In the afternoon, after hearing via Twitter that the Whisky Society's London bar would be rarely open on a Sunday I dashed out to have a very quick dram, and take advantage of a special offer on some "cask end" bottles.

After that, towards the end of the afternoon Chie had arranged for us to go to "Christmas drinks" at a colleague of her's house. I hadn't been particularly briefed on what sort of party it would be, and it was only after arriving that it dawned on me that this was the sort of party where almost all the guests were parents, and all with numerous small children in tow. So naturally all the conversation was about parenting, and it was hard to escape the smell of poo. Not really my scene - we made our excuses after an hour or two and headed back home.
