Office Christmas Party Tonight!

No Christmas party attire, you wonder?

At 1800 hours we'll have a dinner at the office and after that, we're gonna play bowls. Not quite festive.

Because of that I neither wear a tie, nor a Christmas sweater (we don't have this tradition in Germany yet).

Dissappointed? I'm sorry!

Besides that, today will be the last day of work this year. Starting tomorrow, I'll be a husband and father 24/7 until the 5th of January.

But don't you worry! My posts will continue during this time. But there gonna be more Christmas related :-)

Business trip to Hamburg.

Yesterday, I had a nice client/agency meeting in Hamburg.

After a 3.5 hrs car ride, I arrived in one of Germany's most beautiful cities.

Here's my get-up:

Tweed jacket, a checked shirt, a cashmere blend sweater and a nice tie.

Herringbone flannel trousers. And a folded up sweater...

Brown Brogues.

Detail.

Ship cranes and dry docks.

Große Elbstraße. Weather could've been better.

Lunch: Matie filet with green beans and fried potatoes.

Big boat right outside our conference room.

Saint Nicholas Presents and today's get-up.

As you might know, we Germans celebrate Nikolaus or Saint Nicholas Day on the 6th of December.

Many children (every age!) put a boot called Nikolaus-Stiefel (Nikolaus boot) outside the front door on the night of 5 December. 

St. Nicholas fills the boot with gifts and sweets overnight, and at the same time checks up on the children to see if they were good, polite and helpful the last year. If they were not, they will have a stick (Eine Rute) in their boots instead.

This Nikolaus, my Mum had a special present for me: A "Piccadilly Tea Time Hamper" from "The British Shop".

It contains
  • "Shortbread Fingers" and "Belgian Chocolate Chunk Biscuits" by Walkers/Scottland
  • "6 Tea Cakes" by Tunnock's
  • "Chocolate Mints Crisps" by Bendicks
  • "Twinings Tea Selection"
  • a small bottle (0,375 l) Amontillado-Sherry "Los Arcos" by Emilio Lustau
  • "After Dinner Mints" by Ross's of Edinburgh
  • "Toffees" by Walker's Nonsuch
  • 4 small jars of jam and Marmalade by Wilkin & Sons Ltd.




Here's today's get-up:




Herringbone Tweed Jacket, Tattersall shirt and merino sweater vest. This get-up begs for a tie!

Wheat-coloured corduroy trousers

Half-Brogues

The Mirror Crack'd from Side to Side.

Last night, I was watching the first movie of the Miss Marple Collection: 
"The Mirror Crack'd from Side to Side".

Absolutely brilliant! And just like the novel I read during my Autumn vacation at Tegernsee lake.

Today I trust my cords, and OCBD and a cashmere mix sweater.

BBC's Miss Marple Collection (6 DVDs).

During my lunch break, I spotted this little diamond: BBC's Miss Marple Collection.

Quite a bargain for 19.99 Euros! (15.86 quid; 24.85 US Dollars)

The collection consits of 6 discs with 12 TV movies.

As I only know the 4 Margaret Rutherford movies, I'm pretty excited if this new collection will meet with my approval.




Scarf face.

Nights are getting colder with temperatures about -2°C/28.4F.

And it's a week of broken home appliances as first our hoover died and yesterday evening our dishwasher followed suit.

But I don't care! I'm wearing my red sweater!

Merino sweater

8 wale corduroy

Chukka Boots

Burlington over the calf socks. I'm glad I got plenty!
