It’s the same scenario every year. It creeps up on you while you’re not looking and suddenly it’s Christmas party, Christmas shopping time and the boss’s birthday. Normally the seasonal change gives you a forewarning of the upcoming festivities but this year as we have just had one long rainy season it happened again. I woke up one morning recently to see Christmas, the company Christmas party and the boss’s birthday looming on the not so distant horizon. It is of course quite normal for the boss to celebrate his birthday at the Christmas party. Generally they are within a few days of one another.
This year was no exception. The birthday cake which came from Coll’s Cakery (a new company, they have a fb page under that name ) could not have been more appropriate. Made to look like a take away Applegreen “best coffee on the road” cappuccino it really hit the spot. We all know how proud the boss is of the ongoing success of the Applegreen brand so what could be more appropriate as another year passes than an Applegreen cake, a reminder of Applegreen’s further progression onwards and upwards. The boss himself is not much of a coffee drinker so at last he gets to enjoy a “best coffee on the road” cappuccino. All that remains as we hurtle headlong into the festive season is to say Happy Birthday boss!
