Dinner is served
Sunday 25th November comments: Today brought Farnesmas. The team have spent almost nine months on the islands and will be departing these mighty rocks in about a fortnight. Therefore we won’t be here to celebrate Christmas, so we brought everything forward to November 25th and celebrated Farnemas!

We couldn’t celebrate Farnesmas without secret Santa, a tree, decorations, lots of beer and plenty of food (cooked by the ranger experts Bex and Ciaran). And of course, we couldn’t forget Farnemas jumpers…special indeed.

The day was a huge success and the dinner had it all; beef, chicken and vegetables for England, whilst the evening was spent digesting the lot in front of the Muppets Christmas Carol. It was a great day and a nice distraction from work, as tomorrow we’ll be back in to the thick of it with the countdown to leaving now on.

Merry Farnesmas everyone.
