Is It Nearly Over Yet?

Bah Humbug, etc!

With our Xmas buffet and the Secret Santa at work over and done with (I got some nice toiletries from my Secret Santa, which was far more desirable and a lot less embarrassing than the Ann Summers nipple tassles that one of the girls got as a present...and yes, she did give us a twirl, fully clothed of course!), have a nice long weekend to relax, and then I'm back in the office next week.

I'm actually looking forward to it in a perverse kinda way - no traffic on the roads and time to catch up on my backlog of work. Well that's the plan anyway.

Ventured into Manchester City Centre today briefly and strangely, it wasn't as busy as I thought it would be - perhaps most of the people of Manchester haven't left all their shopping til the last minute. Although there could be a mad rush tomorrow?

Anyway, around this time last year, I bought my pink mobile phone. I didn't think I would want to upgrade it but a year later, I couldn't resist so I now have a very nice Motorola Krzr K1. Bigger memory, better camera, screen is smaller but sharper, and not as ubiquitous as the Razr. Shame I lost a lot of my archived texts when I transferred the sim card - could have done with being warned beforehand that that would happen.

Well, the day is fast approaching - I hope it will be Ho Ho Ho and not Boo Hoo Hoo...bah humbug!

  1. Ooh, the luxury of going to the Trafford Centre - haven't been there in, oh, five years? How's it going on then? Still have the Corgi shop on bottom floor from the Peel Avenue / McDonald's end? Or have they gone already?

    Anyway, merry pagan festival, pet, and see you ont other side... Wrap up warm 'gainst cold outside, and all that.
