I have to do Monday the 22nd but then I am off until 5th January. YES!
Off to Iceland from the 28th Dec - Jan 2nd and then back down to earth with a bump for my birthday on the 6th.
And that your family grow to love you even more thanks to what a magical time they'll have.
off from 22nd
Re-open on the 5th
Read it and weep, mooks.
And my first full week since March 2013. I'm looking forward to it a bit.
well played Steved
Back on the 5th
School holidays off is great
Don't care about schools though
then off until the 5th Jan. Supposed to be working 2nd January but they'll say we're not in fo 'sho
working the 23rd and 27th
I'm talking 20th-24th out of my own hols. We'll probably get a half day on 24th and the 2nd off anyway.
just the dates yeah
but one of them is inclusive, the other isn't
Which is fine.
One if us is meant to be in on the week after Christmas, I went to book it first but they're trying to get it off as well, but it being a proper flap about it. Fuck it, I booked it first, I'm off from the 19th but back in on the 2nd.
I am almost certainly gonna be in though on the 29/30/31st! :(
You can come in late, leave early, long lunches/ shopping, office is dead so I can actually do a bit of work if I want to, the phones are dead.
and why i'll be dragging a few others in with me
Except my office isn't open then. And I'm off to a wedding this year on those days.
Why would anyone like an nice long break with their family and friends?
christmas because there's normally much to do and people are generally in a decent mood around then too.
First time I've had my birthday off in years
back on FRIDAY THE FUCKING 2ND. Not allowed to take leave both sides of Christmas. Fucking cunts.
then working until Christmas eve, before being off until the 2nd, when i have to be in to calculate commissions for the final quarter of 2014
i'm off 22nd to 28th. then in between xmas and new year but have the Friday after New Year's Day off. perfec
