When I was just doing coding I used to work every day except Christmas day... though, I even went into work Christmas day when I was at Gremlin, but that's another story.

Thing is, after tomorrow I can't post stuff out to arrive in time for Christmas any more. So there doesn't really seem much point taking any more orders and having folk moaning at me because there is no physical way of getting deliveries out in time. I'm not going back til 3rd January, and this is the longest I've had off at Christmas since.... well.... forever. Even when I had a "proper" job.

I've got two more shifts to go (a Night tonight and a Late on Friday), then I've got 10 full days (IIRC) off. Best. Xmas. Ever!

Today is the office Christmas party, so really only half a day.

Then tomorrow is my last day for 2 weeks

Booted it up tonight, its an i3 7100 with 8GB and 128GB SSD.

Our old lappy is an i5 6200 4GB and 128GB SSD... looking at the benchmarks the old is still better and has a larger screen... so looks like new one will go on eBay along with the monitor as its only a 21.5"!

Still pretty good for free!

I’ll give you ten pound for it (including shipping), you’ll save a fortune on eBay fees!

Sooooo back at work today. Completely forgot I don't want to run payroll between Christmas and new year (because... well... banks), so I have to do that today. And consequently I have to do the accounts today as well to make sure everything's up to date.... oh, and a last-minute "OMG I NEED THIS DESPERATE BEFORE XMAS!!111+" order came in for some hi vis workwear stuff...

Long Christmas holiday gone for a fucking burton!

Last day here also.

Not really anything I can safely work on, seeing that I'll be away until the 2nd next year!
