Like Footski, Been there, done that and usually at night. No extra pay just your turn.

Thank goodness for all the nurses, doctors, police, soldiers, sailors and airman working on through the festive season and beyond.

Bless them all

Yeah, been there, done that, and worn the t-shirt! Don't forget all the services to your home too, electric, gas, water, and telephones, and doubtless others that we don't even think about. May they all have a restful Christmas period, and thanks to them all, no matter where or what they may be doing.

Me, at a university. But in China.

I can take the days off, but would then have to restructure my schedule to make up the missed lessons.

As my family won't be celebrating, I won't bother. I stopped putting the tree up after three years. I was only doing it for myself.  :((

This will be the first Christmas and New Years Eve in ten years that I have not worked, because I have RETIRED!, I was a care worker with Adults with Learning Dissabilities for 16 years.
Prior to that I was a Plumber and Heating Engineer for 35 years, now thats what you call a change in direction.

Happy Christmas all.
