Where I used to work, patients would bring in boxes of chocolates or biscuits in the lead up to chrimbly time. They would be stashed aside, then in the final week before chrimbly day we would do a raffle and get to take home a box of something. Any hoo - I had left a couple of weeks before the raffle to start my new job. It never even crossed my mind that I would be included in the raffle.
Then early on in the New Year I was summoned to my old job and with trepidation I popped in on the way home. Only to be presented with the most gorgeous box of chocolate biscuits. It never even occurred to me that they would still put my name in the hat - but they had.
S'funny old world.
