The Geography Department at work is very fond of Nigel, as he is always finding them little leftover morsels in the kitchen to pop into their lunchboxes before they go off on their many Geographical fieldtrips to look at things of a meandering tributary or perched erratic type nature …..
…… and as a small “thank you” they had invited him to their annual Christmas meal last night …… a little late for Christmas perhaps but when you do so many aforementioned fieldtrips, it’s hard to fit in an aforementioned Christmas meal!
Nigel was told that he should avail himself of the special three course menu offer …. and think nothing of having a starter, main and pudding, it was their treat ….. and as such he started with the lamb koftas …..
…… moving swiftly on to the haddock fishcakes ……
….. and finishing off with a crescendo of lemon curd sponge and gelato, whilst listening to the banter of fieldtrips to follow ….. Broad Haven and Blencathra sounded sooooooooo romantic …. but it was the tales of Iceland that had him putting his spoon down to listen and dream of seeing “live” volcanoes and geysers, bathing in the Blue Lagoon and lounging in hot tubs ……. he’d give anything to go on that trip ………and wondered if he should “up” his contributions in the lunchbox titbit stakes, just in case an extra space should become available that needed filling!!!!
