C – OMG, George is bringing his new girlfriend over it’s bloody 10.30 at night, (much too late to be receiving guests) and I have been sloshing back the white wine, you know how it is you have one glass and before you know it the bottle is nearly empty. So this is my dilemma – should I go to bed or try and do the meet, smile and greet; don’t want to look like the some old lush?
C – just thought of another name for our cleaning business “Above Par Cleaning Services”, it has a bit of a ring to it. What do you think?. It’s the only way out of this financial crisis for us. How are things in the office?
S – hit the hay early so just got your text – good name – we need those contract cleans to get the money rolling in. Office is nice an quiet.
C – ok, I think I survived the meet and greet and am sure I have got away with it. Think there must have been a guardian angel watching over me last night. George and his girlfirend wanted some wine and, to my surprise, I managed to find a bottle of Pinot Grigio lurking in the back of the drinks cupboard; next to the out of date pudding wine. I can’t bring myself to tip it down the drain, am sure I have a Delia recipe somewhere that I can use it for. I served the wine up to them with my usual witty repartee and departed swiftly to bed. All cushty as they say. 🙂
S – just having a cuppa, a snack and a read of the Echo.
C – am in Spoons waiting for the girls. Have been like a headless chicken all day wrestling with cows, sheep and work, so not had time to look at blog.
S – don’t worry I will put something together – have a good evening.
C – I will, nothing like a girls night out to cheer me up. It’s always a pleasure. Sorry you can’t make it – will text you all the gossip tomorrow. 🙂
