Ho ho h-ozeki

It's our annual Christmas Meet Up (I know that it is technically in November) for dinner, drinks and the usual random and varied conversations.

We will be reading 'A Tale for the Time Being' by Ruth Ozeki, which was one of the books shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize.

In bookclub tradition, it will be fancy dress, for those that fancy it, themed around a book or character from a book during the year. There will be a prize for the best dressed.

You may also wish to bring a book with you that you have read & enjoyed this year wrapped up to give as a secret santa.

The festivities will be held at Vintage (where no 12 used to be). Can you please RSVP as soon as you are able so tat I may confirm numbers to the restaurant. 

Other than that it will be the usual good company (& no doubt a liberal amount of wine).

See you there.

    I am so SO sorry. I've been held up at work as the evening manager has called in sick so I'm the only safe key holder till (hopefully) a relief turns up. Am gutted! Have thought about my crayfish salad all day. Will try to come down for drinks.
