Eid Mubarak

Eid starts tomorrow and to celebrate, the powers that be at the office decided to reward us all with a lovely lunch. The carpark was transformed (well, the cars were moved out) and it was lovely to sit under the trees and enjoy the sunshine
It was also fun to admire the fantastic waiters, all of whom sported polka dot shirts and ties and fetching mustaches. But this guy had the best hair.
My lovely friends Loa and Naima posed while we waited for the food - which was wonderfully delicious.
And Louise and Martin joined in the fun too.

The national staff were given half the day off, so there was quite the party atmosphere. The rest of us churned out the last minute things that had to be done in preparation for a few days off - not that we'll necessarily be able to take all that time off, but there won't be many people around to provide information. It was a huge relief to send off two proposals today, and there have been a few announcements of new pledges which is very encouraging in my last two weeks!!

Eid Mubarak to everyone celebrating; I hope the next few days are joyous and peaceful.
