Holiday Time


Just another five working days and then two weeks off, I cannot wait. Two weeks where I will not be abused by clients, two weeks where I do not have to clean up the mess of former co-workers, two weeks when I don’t have to wear shoes or trousers, two weeks of peace and quiet with Brian and my family.

Then just a few months later we will be off to China, Cambodia, and Vietnam. I really can’t wait for that. What a way to celebrate my sixtieth birthday, which is actually in November but we are holidaying early. I’m not sure that I will do anything else for the big “six o”, definitely not a party, maybe just dinner with my immediate family.

I don’t know why people get so upset about birthdays and getting older, it is far better than the alternative, and for me each birthday brings me one year closer to retirement, a big holiday. I would retire tomorrow if I could but we have a mortgage to pay off first. I am aiming for 65, I think that’s achievable.

In the meantime back I will go to the daily grind in 2018, more of other people’s messes to clean up, more abuse from bad tempered clients, and I suppose I will have to go back to shoes and trousers.
