Last day at work in 2012…:)
Christmas lunch with seven work colleagues at The Village Inn pub, at Park Gate…
The Birthday/Address Book was a works raffle win yesterday, and the train ticket took me from Swanwick railway station (near The Village Inn) to Fratton…with more than an hour to wait for the train because of flooding in Hampshire…
…so I passed some time taking photos from the footbridge over the railway line at Swanwick station, this is one of a Southampton-bound train…
With all that flooding, luckily it was your last workday! 🙂
Yes, andelieya, I don’t return to work now until the 2nd January, so it gives me a bit more time to devote to the taking of photographs for this blog :).
Ah! That answers my question on your previous blog ~ haha!
I hope you had a lovely lunch!
Nice bit of train spotting thrown in today then. It’s a tad damp around these parts too! The school fire alarm went off just to make things really ‘fun’ ~ and we had 200+ shivering coatless, soaked children stood in the middle of a muddy field in the poring rain, waiting to be allowed back into school! Heads will roll no doubt, when we find out why it went off! 🙂 Oh well ~ at least it was our last day too!
Those poor kids! And I guess some of their parents won’t be too happy about it either ;). Anyway, as you say, at least you all now get a break until the New Year :).
What, no embarrassing photos from the office Christmas party? ;-). If you’d been at Swanwick later you might have bumped into Tim, that’s his work station. Dave came home from uni today, and had to get a replacement bus. Spot of rain, and it all goes to pot!
No, I kept my camera in my pocket, until we’d left the pub :). I never realised that Tim worked so close to Swanwick station, and I definitely would’ve been surprised if I had bumped into him there! Yes, I gather there were a lot of train services affected by the heavy rain in the south-west today. In fact, there were two quite stressed women at Swanwick station whilst I was there, trying to get (cancelled) trains to Gatwick Airport, for late afternoon flights :(.
