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 must admit, I am looking forward to going home next tuesday.
Yesterday I quarantined myself in my office, couldn't face the big new years day lunch, and just had the big screen down at the end of my office and had James Bond movies on Sky playing, then flipped it over to the music channels after.
The Aberdeen office is still closed today, so should be another quiet day
It used to be everyone's resolution back in 2008!!!
Then something happened!!! (What? I don't know!)
A train station is where the train stops. A bus station is where the bus stops. On my desk, I have a work station....
My programs never have bugs, they just develop random features.
Your resolution sounds similar to mine from last year, which I'm maintaining this year. At the end of 2011 I wasn't proud of the way I used the voting system.
I stopped voting on forum posts. If I felt strongly one way or the other about a post, I replied. If I voted on an article, I explained my vote. Interestingly, Chris turned forum voting off and relatively few people miss it. The atmosphere in the Lounge has improved immensely. The stench of burned ego from the constant sniping is almost gone.
Let it be known, however, that I despise the agist bigots(*) who decided that the dark gray text on a slightly less dark background for the search box was a cool idea. It's hard as the f*** to read if you're middle-aged.
(*) These are the same stupid f***ers at Microsoft that designed Expression Blend with a gray-on-gray UI.
After deleting the IE temp files after a link in a post here landed me at an infected page.
I had to log back in and a was greeted with an interesting picture of Evil Hamsters.
First time I have seen that one.
So I just had to save that picture and add it to my Holiday logo collection.
