Management here at the UK’s Leading Property Magazine (First Choice For Property Information) have decreed that tonight, we socialise. And where are we going to be socialising? Why, on a boat sailing up and down the Thames, of course.
At first glance, this might sound like an attractive concept. Free food and free booze on a boat, with some of the loveliest urban riverscape in the country on either side. Well, that’s true enough. However, journalists being journalist have seen through this veneer of pleasure and spotted the unpalpable truth of the situation. We have to spend five hours with our “colleagues” in ad sales and web databases with NO HOPE OF ESCAPE.
Well, I’ve got the digicam and a few magazine with me if worst comes to worst. Oh, and the voucher for six free drinks might ease the pain a little.
