My Boss is on holiday for the next two weeks. I mean how dare people take holidays, that's what I do!!

I promptly put in my entire holiday request for 2009/10 into the system, hey future planning!! They'll take place beetween April and October. I haven't actually booked anything mind just the time off work. I have printed some accomodation for hols with Dad and I'll show him them tonight.

As the boss is in Ireland I wasn't expecting approvals to the new year but they came back approved within an hour. WEY HEY!!

I was sitting in the office yesterday lunchtime reading when a colleague came up to see me. Of course reading in ones lunchtime is no great sin but I guess when you are a middle aged manager you can expect funny looks if you are reading the Judge Dredd Megazine (a comic).

I decamp to Dads tomorrow evening for a few days. Plans? uhm to do very little, I'll take the camera and may take some local pics over the few holidays.

The telly looks rubbish, still there is a new Wallace & Gromitt and a Dr Who special.

Out of interest why does every North American wish me Happy Holidays? or Season Greetings? It's Christmas!!! Muslim and Hindu colleagues have no problem wishing me a happy christmas and can't see the problem either.

hey ho.

It's pc gone mad Pete!

Exactly, if Jewish people are more than happy to have Christmas trees up (not every Jewish family, but some) and Chinese people too celebrate Christmas without being Christians then what's the problem with wishing someone Happy Christmas??

I'd wish someone Happy Hanukkah, Happy Chinese New Year and such without being offended.

Personally I don't see myself as Christian, but I do celebrate it as a time of year to spend with loved ones, to take the time out and cherish what you have. Therefore I steer clear of things like angels, nativity scenes and such.

Yes I've been to Carol services, one was held at Uni, I just didn't join in the prayers unless it made sense and could be applied to anyone (some were about peace, respecting, helping and caring for others. Nothing about faith, God, Jesus etc)

I hope you have a nice time with your dad, and yes tv does look very poor.

*kisses sky plus*

We're efficiently killing two birds with one stone so we don't have to come all the way back here next week to wish you a Happy New Year as well.

Ingenious, isn't it? ;-)
