‘Tis The Season

My local has re-opened.  Which, of course, is a double-edged sword.  I have very very quickly got to know the new guv’nor – to the point of helping him install his wireless internet, and meeting his family the other night.  And – already being allowed behind the bar to help myself .  Even using the till.  Dangerous, dangerous times.  I’ve told him that I’m quite happy to jump behind the bar and help out when I see them getting busy.  And the other night, I think he was hinting that I do it regularly.  Had to re-iterate my position – I’m more than happy to help out, as long as it doesn’t mean somebody who’s actually getting paid for it gets less hours, or loses their job, or something

He and his girlfriend have made quite a few changes to the pub already.  Taken half the carpet up, fresh paint, that kind of thing – made the pub look a new place straightaway.  He’s going to start doing food soon.  TVs coming in.  Soon enough, I’ll never need to leave the place.  Have already done a spot of work from there using the wifi.  Bad precedent.

And other than that – it’s been work.  Worked up to and including the 24th.  Then it was little Nicky Osborne’s birthday.  Although I couldn’t make it to Spain to spend it with him – I went to Chook’s place for a day of festivities.  Food and wine.  And a board game, which I got tired of – so ended it by winning.  Also came up with an idea for New Year’s Eve, finally – and have managed to do something about it.  So, anybody else who doesn’t have plans yet – it’s Bangkok this year.  See you there.
