So here I am back in the office.
I am the first one in (lazy buggers are probably grabbing those last few seconds of freedom).

There is no milk for tea (remedied by nipping round the corner to the shop), and I have to make it myself (no elves have arrived to prepare the first cuppa of the year).
It is freezing because the scrooge-like proprietors have turned it off over the break.
The pile of post by the front door this morning is immense, there are mountain goats leaping from ledge to ledge and I will need a damn sherpa to get to the top of it. (Started opening it, but wish I could hand this tedious job over to someone else).
Now the bloody phones have started ringing and I am wondering how quickly I can get my finances sorted so that I can afford to retire.(Being only 45 it may take a few years).

I will be fine by next week, but the Curmudgeonly Old Git in me hates coming back to work after the XNY break.

I will never again mention that I was the poster of the One Millionth Lounge Post, nor that it was complete drivel. Dalek Dave
