Last 5 days for me this week.
what about everyone else?
I finished a year ago last August!
Last day of actual work at Canadapost , Nov 17,1998 retired sept14, 2012!! 40 year pin. JIM
Will still be working Christmas Eve till about 22.30 hope it's no later
Then back Boxing Day not too early in the morning I hope ......
But at least I've got Christmas Day off
All work and no play for me this time of year it's the business I'm in
But at least all the customers are happy this time of year ( well most of them )
Being self employed/freelance I shall continue working sporadically and at random times throughout the festive period. Gotta grab the cash when you can!
Keep working guys..... Got to keep the pension topped up!!!!
I retired about 10 years ago. Was very worried about switching off but it never really happened....
I work part time visiting supermarkets which gives me time to chat up the lady customers..... Life's good!!
Also have been working on cars and bikes for the past 55 years. I've got 6 bikes now in various states of renovation plus my Yaris (just failed it's MOT but I've replaced the rear brake shoes + drop links so should pass on a retest.) Bought my Z3 from a dubious character last March changed the engine, had the head skimmed, replaced the petrol pump, can't remember all the other problems but finally passed the MOT in November.
At 73 am I the oldest Z Roadster member?????????
Finally been sectioned Bad Boy?
Self employed , been there done that. It has it's ups and downs.
Join the club, did it for three years but due to cash flow, knocked it on the head.
It was not the small service company's that took months to pay but the big boys.
Hi BADMAN....like you I finish this week..Weds night and not back to Jan ..happy days
Good stuff, the funny thing is that I enjoy my job so much I miss it!

Yep, still haven't got round to meeting have we!
could be messy badman ( I mean with the same sense of humour)
Finish on the 16th back on the 12th
Some really nice long breaks for some of you, do you save your hols specifically for a long christmas break or does your job dictate a closure over the christmas period?
The Railway never stops, I have had so much on this year I've not taken much holiday so far.
It's nice to have a long xmas off but I'm one of those people (quite rare) that loves my job and being at work.
The best thing about being off at Xmas is spending time with the M. Dry winters day drives are great.
I have a very nice boss who lets me take 3 weeks unpaid each year since we've had the villa. 2 days left for this year so an afternoon off today with Shirl and grandson.
I love Christmas so take 3 of my six weeks
