    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?????????

    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.

    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?

    Hello Brian,

    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.:)
