Signing Off

I am working all over Christmas, yet as I feel the need for a holiday I'm going to stop blogging until the new year. With one exception.

On Christmas day itself I shall be doing my 'mobile posting after every job' series of posts. No-one will read it in real time as you all have better things to do, but it'll give you a good idea of another regular Christmas.

I'll also be ignoring all emails until the new year – they'll be going straight into the trash.

Happy Christmas everyone, and have a good new year.

  4. Merry Christmas, and hope you get to njoy any time off you do get..I'll be bored enough to be checking in on Christmas day.. no plans on the day itself here, other than following your suggestion of last year and taking some home made mince pies to our local ambulanc station (LAS, but I think its a kind of “sub-station” as its a house and only has two or three ambulances running from it I think), and a bottle of my to die for real hot chocolate!

  5. Good christmas Tom. Just give us a shout when we are cool to start emailing you again and I will resent that email. LoL remeber, dont put the airway in the wrong hole. No matter how tempting it is lol.

  11. I probably be reading it too, since I'm still here working for another 4 weeks, 7 days a week 14 hours a day including Christmas and New Year.It's quite nice to be detached from the real world in the Libyan desert 🙂

  13. Have good one Tom! Here in Sveeden they “celebrate” Christmas on the 24th and watch Donald Duck at 3pm (so a day early and the wrong programme then……) plus it's not too much of an exaggeration to say that if you blink here, you'll miss Christmas altogether! My fiance and I are celebrating English style YEAH but no turkey (we have one as a neighbour)………/j&j
