I just found out I've been invited to the corporate marquee at the country races in Bendigo on Wednesday.
Claire is due one week today, but I am absolutely certain this baby is coming early. How bad would I feel, a few drinks in to be back on a 2 hour train, unable to drive her to the hospital as I've been promising I'd do for 6 months?
Then again, this will be the first real occasion I've had to hang out and get to know many of my colleagues at a job where those kinds of opportunities are key to a successful working relationship.
So it's dress up and drink or it's work and whine.
To be continued...
