Advent 2021 day 23

 

Final day at work

Final day at work
Final day at work.

It's over.

It's done.

All those Saturdays. All those half hours extra. All the long slog towards the festive season push.

It's over. Done. Finished.

I am now on holiday.

I can watch Netflix all day while sitting in bed eating obscene amounts of chocolate, if I feel like it. ☺

But mostly, if I wake up and look at the weather report generated by my server and it says -1°C, I can roll over and go back to sleep.

Of course, I'm apparently 54.02 hours in hand (that's seven full days, plus five hours to carry over), plus I have three holiday days outstanding as this winter holiday only uses five days.
Will I take two weeks off at the end of March, or should I ask to be paid (the company usually pays for up to 40 hours). Even with being paid 40 hours, that'll leave fourteen plus three holidays, which is a week. Hmm, that might be a better option.
Well, the tax year finishes on the 31sup of March, so I have time to decide.

But for now... holiday!
Libéree. dérlivrére, c'est dércidé, je m'en vais!

Since I got married (in 1972) I have celebrated two Christmasses each year: a Danish one on Christmas Eve, and a British one on Christmas Day. The food for each is rather different. Yes, it is tough on the liver, but these festivals deserve to be taken seriously.  
 
Glaedelig Juul! Skaal!
