Ready for Christmas….finally!

Those I.T. issues at work that I mentioned in my last post pretty much carried on throughout the week and at one point I think I only managed an accumulative 8 hours of broken sleep during a period of 72 hours…and that was after the 24 hours stint (yep, poor StiGGy 🙂 ). I think we’re pretty much back to normal now but man am I ready for some downtime. The end is in sight because it ends at 8am tomorrow morning when the rota flips over to another technician and I can finally switch off my works phone, have one final day in the office and then the Christmas holidays can begin….yaaaaaaaaaaaay!

Of course, with all the to-ing and fro-ing and keyboard bashing there’s been absolutely no time on the last week before the holidays for getting everything ready for the festivities. Thankfully, and all credit goes to my lovely wife for being so organised, we’d completed our gift shopping at the end of November so at least we don’t have to hit the crowds again, have the cards written and despatched, drinks and party food shopping done and probably the latest it’s ever been, our tree is finally up and the house is festooned with seasonal decorations.

T-minus 18 hours to go until 8am….in the meantime, mince pie anyone?

  1. Christmas cards? Wow, you are really in the old school stuff StiGGy! I wish to have the perseverance, but it is always so late when I realize Christmas is coming. Actually it is always a surprise. What? Really? It is end of December? Jeez.

    Mince pie? Sure, why not. Never tried before.

    And yes, wifes rock! 🙂

  2. In today’s world of digital communication, I think it’s just nice once in a while to get back to good old fashioned pen on paper and mail them by hand instead of clicking send.

    I’m a sucker for nostalgia 🙂

    One mince pie on its way sir, be careful there’s a generous glug of brandy in it.
