12 days of Fluid

We’re proud to say that our excitement levels at Christmas rival that of a five year old. Show us a live reindeer, a sausage wrapped in bacon and an inflatable Santa and we’re there.

So naturally it’s been an exciting month full of treats, food and Christmas music. We thought we’d share the highlights and just maybe embarrass some Fluid staff.

All photos were willingly taken without duress. You all have yourselves to blame…

St Turner

Lee bah-humbug ‘turn that bloody Christmas music off’ Turner isn’t really big on Christmas. Unless it’s for the kids, he could take it or leave it.

But alas, what’s this, a LinkedIn profile picture of St Nick himself? Santa’s hacked LinkedIn and stolen Lee’s glasses!

Under the sea

The office Christmas do, a time for debauchery, over-indulgence and playing with crustaceans. Our Steph sung a rousing chorus of ‘Under the Sea’ after brutally butchering Sebastian. Cold.

We’re liking the strategically placed port holes there too…

Claire’s accidental Christmas jumper

You wear a red jumper and someone sends in a Christmas card with a beard on it, what are the chances? Incidentally, this lovely chunky knit is from Boohoo. The card was from Mustard Research.

Jo (background) is wearing a stylish red fascinator, as she often does in the office.

The hamper of happiness. It. Was. Huge.

A word of thanks is nice, several bottles of wine and enough gooey treats to last all year is brilliant. Our online marketing team received this beautiful hamper from the team at Illuminated Mirrors. Huge thanks to Jamie and Karl for sending it, it was a true ‘oohs’ and ‘ahhs’ moment.

After scoffing those ‘Marmite’ items (like Shiraz, Chardonnay, Christmas pudding and several chocolaty items) we shared the rest with the office.

Christmas jumper/onesie/Dominos/fish ‘n’ chips day

The brief? Wear what you want and find us a good Dominos voucher. After sipping cocktails and munching on lobster at the Christmas do, only a grease fuelled onesie day would do.

Don’t we all look nice?

Fluid staff Christmas

On the 12th day of Christmas, gifts from our MD…

A P45? Why you shouldn’t have! After putting in our orders for a night cap, Lee gave us all a bottle of our favourite tipple. We were very impressed with the level of alcohol preferences on offer, with bison green grass vodka and speciality rums bestowed on each team member.

Our Georgie got home and tweeted a pic of her Kraken before regaling us with wild tales of her Kraken drinking. NB: the flavour’s more robust when you mix with Diet Coke, not full sugar.

A big thanks to Lee for our Christmas presents…. They’re purely medicinal.

And finally…Paul’s daily pigs in blankets feast*

*We don’t have a picture of this in order to avoid offending the vegetarian community (and wider community) this Christmas.

This year, we’ll be on our holidays from Tuesday 23rd December (5pm) – Monday 5th January. If you have any urgent issues during this period, please contact us ([email protected]) and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can.

On behalf of everyone at Fluid, we’d like to wish you all a very merry Christmas.

Here’s to a prosperous 2015!
