This evening...

This evening was good. Good food, good company, good conversation.

I don't know if you remember me posting /ages/ ago about how I felt hurt that I seemed to be excluded from work social events? This was well before I moved up north. Well, the same thing seemed to be happening here. I've seen numerous examples of other people (within my team and in other teams) going out for drinks/food after work. I spoke to someone this evening about it, and - as I suspected - it was a case of them thinking that I wouldn't want (or be able) to make it, so I didn't get asked. Needless to say, I set /that/ straight.

But the crowning moment of this evening was when one of my fellow team leaders stopped to talk to me as I was getting ready to leave. She looked me straight in the eye and said (with, I believe, full sincerity), "It was really good to see you join us on a night out, Dave"

Now that one comment really meant a lot to me, and I told her so, although I did have to battle with myself not to go into the reasons why I'd not joined them previously... that being that I'd never known about the events until /after/ they'd happened. But I didn't say anything about it, responding instead with a warm smile.

Maybe I got it wrong? I don't know. I hope I did, and I apologise if I did.

Anyhoo, it's bedtime.
