    Holiday plans?

    It's our last few days, lessons finish tomorrow, pupils leave on Wednesday lunchtime after spending the morning at the carol service. I am finishing then too, off to Budapest on Thursday for a few days and not back into work until 2nd Jan. Busy few 2 days when I get back but looking forward to the break.

    What's your plans?

    Don't finish till the 20th, my parents arrive on the Monday and stay till Friday (if they survive that long ) and have Mrs Teejays side of the family round Xmas day, so it will be 13 of us squeezed round the table :-)
    Second week will be out doing lots of hill walks as now I'm getting down to a sensible weight I'm doing the Yorkshire 3 Peaks challenge next summer, so seriously need to get fitter

    School finishes Friday but in till the 20th; have a few days leave left so I'll be done on the 17th. Home for the holidays up in Peterborough (eurgh) then back down here for NYE. Back in the office on the 2nd.

    I really need some sleep.

    Refitting our IT office as it is stupidly cramped with massive desks in. If I can get hold of them, fitting a couple of replacement IWBs, few machines to rebuild and that is about it.

    I finish on the afternoon of the 13th, take my son to a birthday party that afternoon. Then on the 16th go down to bristol childrens hospital for my son to have his cystic kidney removed (not going to be fun ), hopefully back home by the 18th or 19th if all goes well. Possibly back in work for a half day to install new photocopiers on the 20th, then off until the 6th of Jan

    Expecting a quiet xmas overall, thoroughly looking forward to my parents cooking as always on xmas day.

    Finish on the 20th. Bus, train and ferry overnight on the 22nd/23rd (only 13 hours travel, to go about 340 miles). About 4 days with my parents, then staying with a friend until the 3rd when I get the ferry, train and bus back again.

    Wish I could justify flying, but the cost is ridiculous.

    Finish here on the 20th, back on the 6th. School closed for entire time. Two weeks off w00t. I might be in 23rd/24th.......maybe......if I feel like it or something crops up.

    Lots of sleeping late, indulgence, grandkids, indulgence, toys, more indulgence, then probably a couple of days of Destroy-It-Yourself at home before we go back in January.

    Then it's all downhill. That's what I always think when we go back in January. Midwinter passed, days getting lighter, weather getting warmer, short, short term until Easter, then it's all over for another year, basically. Roll on July

    Finish around lunchtime on the 24th, back in on the 2nd. School's shut on the 27th so we've all been told we have to book a day's holiday for that day anyway so I'm taking the Monday and Tuesday off as well.
