Sitting here in the office, waiting for the nod from the boss that we can go home. 12:30pm is the magic time some are saying, others are saying 3:30pm.

It's been a long morning.

I know the feeling. I've finished all my work for the day by 10am, we've had about 6 powercuts since then in 10 minute intervals. Its getting pointless being here now as no one is doing anything!

I'm scheduled to be here on support until 6pm! Most departments are off by 1pm, so I may be allowed to slope off early... then again there is absolutely no xmas cheers in our section, so 6pm here I come..

I get off at one, so far I've been eating Chocolates :)

Then it's the pub, beef dinner, pub, sleep, wake up, open preseants, bacon sandwiches, salmon starter, pub, cook dinner (more booze), eat, veg out in front of queen, tv, probably go online, play xbox, more beer, sleep.

Not necessarily that order though :)

I'm in work too - going at 1pm. The rest of the team are off.

TBH I could have slipped off earlier, but my daughter is coming here and she is excited to sit at my desk and have a go of my PC - so I stuck around.

Xmas day will probably be up at 6am, going to mums at 10am, back home for 12 - the missus' folks are coming for dinner. Have a hyper few hours until my daughter conks out, then relax and watch some festive crap.

As a reward, boxing day is my gaming day.

:lol:

Be weird though, this is the first year I'm not spending all day at my mums.

Spending it with my mum and dad, opening up the nice new laptop they've bought me and immediately installing MAME on it :lol: then we're going round to my sister's place for Xmas dinner. Later on, will sit and watch The Dark Knight and Wall-E again on DVD (my sis has bought them for me for Xmas).

Is it likely someone's going to put the Queen's speech on UKN or similar?

So lots of surprises for you from Santa then? ;)

I'm in work today till 3:30, then will be going home and me and the missus will follow our usual Xmas Eve routine of watching Die Hard (that's our kind of Xmas movie! :D) then maybe go the pub for a bit...

Tomorrow I'll be getting up, opening presents, lazing about and then off to my other half's parents house for Xmas lunch.

Boxing day much the same but going to see my parents, sister and her four kids...

Not very exciting really! :roll:
