i am off from the 19th december to the 9th January. my office is closed from the 23rd to the 4th.
My office is only closed on the 27th and the 2nd?
as our office is open the whole time apart from the bank holidays and our team is quite important.
I've asked for the 22-26th off but it hasn't been confirmed yet.
I'll also be working New Year's Eve and day.
presumably the office'll be closed if everyone takes leave then
much better than last year when work didn't let me have any time off beyond bank holidays, so a mad rush to get the last train going north on christmas eve ensued
though we're being 'encouraged' to use a day's leave to take the 19th off too.
I was already planning on taking off the 19th plus the first week of Jan. so I'll be taking 3 weeks off, but will use only 5 days leave to do so.
awesome, isn't it.
Can't wait. Gonna go to London for the whole time and get fat(ter).
Don't need to use any leave for that as the office is closed the week of the 26th to 30th. I might book the 23rd and 3rd off too, so I'll have a week and a half off for two day's leave.
Office is closed from Christmas until Jan 2nd. 10 more days of work then a month off. Hell. Yes.
Back in on 4th January. I will be taking in the glorious sights of Wiltshire and Hertfordshire during that time.
I'm also covering the New Years Day bank holiday but its good because I'm the only one in the office so just pretty much chill out on double pay and get an extra days leave.
except I don't get double pay or time off in lieu.
I can :D
No. Can't even get youtube.
i used to only get christmas day/boxing day/new year's day off. didn't mind though, because nothing happened at Christmas and I got three extra days leave to use the following year, when it was sunny and fun stuff was to be done.
Finish work on the 19th, go back on the 30th.
Days off around Christmas are for the weak (or people with plans, I guess)
and then I'm off until the 3rd. Not too shabby at all.
Not long enough
as the university is closed from 23rd dec - 2nd jan. back to work on january 3rd.
I might take the first week of jan off though so I can go home for my dad's birthday on 2nd jan and hang out with him drinking Balvenie and playing with teh SPiderPugs.
3 days off that is as holiday, the office is closed for the rest of it.
I FUCKING LOVE CHRISTMAS!!!
and I might be working whilst I'm away. fml
and i think im back in on boxing day. havent seen my rota yet. Not getting home for christmas this year. First year ever!
as I used up most of my holiday on a month-long jaunt in May. Mum and Dad don't live too far away though so can still enjoy some quality time at home.
that'll be good.
that's it until i'm unemployed on new years day.
