This Thursday past, Grace and I headed down to York for the “Ministry of Automattic’s” Christmas Dinner. In other words, the UK employees of Automattic.
Rachel kindly stepped up to organise everything.
I really like York, so it was nice to head back there; and even better because it’s fairly central for our geographical spread – so not too long a train journey.
It was really nice to see people again, although I always feel like you never actually get much time to properly talk to anyone at shorter meetups.
Simon is still rocking the beard.
We had plenty to eat and drink, including an ill-judged attempt to down an entire Yard of beer. I was doing fine till the very end…
The next day we took the chance to meetup with my old pal, the infamous Lee Jones – who took time out from his usual schedule of bothering the EDL in Scarborough.
and Jeffels, who is a York resident – though gearing up to move to London soon.
Trying to cure the hangover with some cider.
Merry Christmas and all that.
