Merry Christmas from all of the team at Eurobuild CEE - and their furry, feathered and scaly friends

Eurobuild Awards
You might think that a fish cannot speak. But this is not the case in the Eurobuild CEE editorial office! Dogs, cats, rabbits and guinea pigs can talk too – at least at Christmas, according to Polish tradition. Today it is them who wish you Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year! Thank you for your cooperation. So in 2014 carry on building, leasing and designing and... send us the news about whatever you do! This is what we wish for you and ourselves.

Elmo – the owner of Zuzia Wiak, a journalist at Eurobuild CEE

I love you and you are the best mistress in the world. But stop working and look after me all day long, go for walks with me, cuddle me and stroke me!

Nathan North Holly Ivy Eurobuild

Holly and Ivy – the owners of Nathan North, deputy editor of Eurobuild CEE

Ivy: "I don't care if it is Christmas and we have to pose for a photo. If Nathan doesn't put me down right now I'll scratch all his books to shreds!"

Holly: "You did that last night, remember?"

Ivy: "Did I? I must have been enjoying myself so much I can hardly remember it.

Holly: "Anyway - shush! I'm only stood on his shoulders so I can see where he has hidden all our presents!"

Ivy: "He's bought us lots of presents?

Holly: "Well, he gave us Christmassy names, so I should think so."

Ivy: "I hope he's giving me a good book – Fifty Shades of Grey Fur or Scratch 22... something I can really get my claws into."

Holly: "How about The Scratcher in the Rye? Now, where's he hidden them? I know - I'll use my laser eye to find them..."

Dumbo – the owner of Renata Brudzyńska, conference coordinator at Eurobuild CEE

If I could say something on this special night, I would say that it does not matter if you are in a bad mood, if you do not let me chew your things, if we only go for three walks a day (and even that is just a short stroll around the house) and if you are angry with me when I walk with my dirty paws all over your clean carpet. But I love you best of all anyway because you are my master! Merry Christmas... and now where is my bone?!!!

Fish – the owner of Joasia Teodorowicz, conference coordinator at Eurobuild CEE

A Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! May each of you find a goldfish that grants you all your wishes! (another Polish tradition)

Zuza, Gucio, Puchatek and Muśka – the owners of Ania Ugniewska, the graphic designer at Eurobuild CEE

Actually we do not need a special occasion to express our expectations, because our home staff is good at reading and fulfilling them. Still, if we can present our wish list, here it is:

Zuza would like the staff not to fidget so much when used as a place to sleep

Gucio would like to be carried for at least 20 hours a day

Puchatek would like more mice, balls, rags, strings, etc.

and Muśka... just leave her in peace! And we address that last wish to all the lovers of cats, dogs, rabbits, hamsters and any other animals.

Pestka - the owner of Alex Hayes, a journalist at Eurobuild CEE

I wish everyone a great big sackful of carrots under the Christmas tree!

Foks – the owner of Rafał Gaj, senior sales specialist at Eurobuild CEE

Faithful reader Foks wishes everyone a merry and peaceful Christmas and lots of personal and professional success next year. May all your deepest dreams come true!

Melman – the owner of Kasia Matejuk, development manager at Eurobuild CEE

I wish Merry Christmas to everyone and less work for my mistress!

Barsa – the owner of Aneta Cichla, a journalist at Eurobuild CEE

Follow my example: love life, love people and enjoy every moment! And now give me something to eat.

I don’t expect Barsa to say anything more, so on her behalf I wish everyone some rest in a warm atmosphere as well as lots of challenges and even more successes in the New Year!

Ginger and Kropuś – the owners of Ewa Andrzejewska, editor-in-chief of Eurobuild CEE

Kropek: Ginger, posing for photos is such a nightmare! So working in real estate much be such hard work – all those immovables! So I hope that next year things start to get moving again

Ginger: and the year after that as well!

I agree with my pets. May 2014 be a time when business finally gets moving again – for good.
