Well that was Christmas and New Year again. Two and half weeks off work and only three days to call my own. Lots of family and friend stuff, major amounts of eating and drinking (though less than in previous years). I went to the zoo twice, to Tantallon Castle, to the Scottish Seabird Centre, to the local pantomime, exhibitions, shopping, big family meals - the usual stuff. It was all fun but not really a holiday, more a different kind of work. Back to the office tomorrow for a different kind of rest!
