During the past year my husband has worked for a large company. Last month we received the invitation to their Christmas party – a dinner on a boat – to celebrate the festive season. I was pleased to receive the invitation and agreed immediately to accompany my husband. What a treat it was to go out and experience a place we had not been to before.
When we entered the steamboat, we were greeted with a pleasant sight. I liked the casual and yet festive settings of the place where we were going to eat.
I loved the Christmas tree that dominated the one corner of the space. The lights on the tree sparkled and added to the simple, and yet effective, way the dining room had been decorated. The red baubles on the tree matched the colour of the table settings. When we chose a seat, I made sure that I could see the tree from my seat. My photo, unfortunately, is not a very good one – though my close-up of the tree’s ornaments did turn out a little better.
I sat next to the window so that while we were chatting and eating I could look out through the window at the lights of the city.
While I was taking pictures, my husband could not resist taking one of me. 🙂 I enjoyed the evening. We ate a simple buffet, chatted, and did a little dancing. Even though we had met because of dancing, my husband and I had not gone out to dance for 17 years. It felt good to move our dancing feet and dig deep down into our memories for the steps that we had learnt such a long time ago. This week I am grateful for the different dinner experience that I had on Saturday; as well as the chance to dance again with my husband.
