#SoCS Dec. 16/17 – Contrast

Linda’s prompt for SoCS this week…

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “contrast.” Use the word “contrast,” or talk about contrasting things. Enjoy!

In Contrast…

I’ll be off soon to get my Christmas nails done!

It’s been a while. They are looking terrible at the moment, but, what with life, I haven’t had a chance to pamper myself as I usually do.

And I need to get them done today as Hubby Dearest and I are off to his work Christmas Party tonight. It’s a ‘Ball’ of sorts, and the company sent invites out to the employees and partners.

I love a good party, and it doesn’t phase me in the slightest that I have never met any of his colleagues since he started at this company just before the summer this year. All the more new people to talk to!

His previous company also had glamorous ‘plus one’ Christmas parties at various glamorous locations, like Whitehall Palace, Madame Tussauds and London Zoo, which we attended as a couple. It’s always lovely to dress up and be all ‘fancy’ if you know what I mean!

In contrast, my work party, which will be at the end of term, is very much an event just for the staff. There is never an invitation stretched to the partners of the attendees! And it only occurred to me the other day that none of the places I worked, have ever had a party where partners have been invited!

He always asks whether he can come, and I always have to say no! I think we all really need to let off steam after the long Autumn term, and having partners there can sometimes mean that you end up babysitting your other half if they don’t know others, instead of relaxing and enjoying yourself.

Mind you, I’m not sure I’d want to be in a room with 40-odd school and teaching staff, after all the assessments, observations, and Christmas productions, if I wasn’t one of them!!!

Now I need to decide what do do with my nails… Sparkles and glitter? Chrome? Contrasting feature nail (yes, that is a thing!)? Let’s see, eh!




Happy Saturday Peeps!

    Shiny nails sound lovely, but then so do rich, bright “holiday” colors….

    Having done both types of parties as well myself, I hear you on wanting to keep your work party intimate, but then… who knows, maybe some of your other coworkers wouldn’t be opposed to stepping out for an event on occasion.

    It’s the difference in workplace…. but it’s also habit.

    My work party is tonight too and my plus one is Lulu. My hubster does not like parties so he would never ask to join. Now that Lulu just turned 20, she is old enough to attend, well for the last 2 years she has attended with me. Makes for a nice girls’ night. Have fun tonight!
