I'm on holiday today, and all of next week!

I am not in the office till after Christmas.

The project managers do not have my number, and they cannot find me.

I can lie in bed at 4am listening to the cricket on Long Wave.

I can go to the British Museum and look at the amazing things.

I can talk to people in different timezones.

I can do housework, and put my accounts in order.

I can turn the two skeins of beautiful blue silk from fluffenstuff into something nice (a hat, I think, and something else).

I can go to a midweek milonga without struggling the next day.

I'm sure I can think of a few more things tomorrow.

I am determined that by the day after tomorrow I will have forgotten all about work.

Happy happy holidays - I am very envious and look forward to seeing you on the 27th for a little post-Christmas knitting.

Yes, I feel a bit guilty about not going anywhere for my holidays, but I like the free-form kind. I really need a rest, and to get some things done.

See you on 27th for some vaguely subversive activities ...

oh, the British Museum! My favorite place. Please go for me and give mea special post. Say hi to the mummies for me.

Today I've had two contacts from colleagues who have my private mobile number, so I'm down a bit there, but nothing too serious. I'm hoping there won't be any more.

You could do what my Boy "accidentally" did. He dropped his Blackberry in the toilet (don't ask). But it did stop the phone calls for a while.

Those things terrify me. Some people call them Crackberries.
