2 Days to Christmas!

The countdown is nearing it's end, and I'd like to thank those who have followed, and also commented on the Blog - some kind remarks received.

At work yesterday, I managed to hire a plasma tv for my department, and had a couple of films on the go, such as Home Alone 1 & 2, great films for this time of the year.... "Kevin!!??!!"

The atmosphere at work is very much ramped up now, with most if not all of the teams having now had their festive nights out together, with probably much fun and I daresay plenty of scandal going on during the nights!

Still on the subject of work, there is much talk of employers being scrooge on Christmas Eve - we all like to finish early, but the term "business as usual" has been thrown around, primarily because of the recession that we are in, but for god's sake, it's one afternoon, why can't all employers just say okay, it's a 12 noon finish across the board in jobs, and give everyone the chance to enjoy the Christmas build up with their family or friends, or both?

It surely wouldn't damage the world that much would it if the afternoon was made exclusively for the pre-Christmas buzz, and not having to stay in work, it's my opinion that these businesses that insist their staff continue to work through are playing Scrooge, and should not expect favours back from it's staff when asked.

Come on, get into the christmas spirit hey??

Anyway, let's not finish today on a low, let's have a sing-a-long...
