back again

Hi everyone, break's over. So now you'll be subjected to all my trivial thoughts again... Did you miss me? (no, don't answer that - I'd rather keep my little illusion, that you did, intact hehe)

Haven't been doing much over the last month. The usual stuff at work, Chickie's doing great at school and I've been playing a fair bit of World of Warcraft (good to lose yourself in, when you don't want to think too hard ;) and I've made some very good friends there).

I'm totally hanging out for December though. I will have a whole month off. I can not wait!

My mum and dad will be visiting for a fair chunk of it, and then the rest of my family (3 sisters and their families) is coming over for Christmas. I haven't seen some of them in years and some have never visited us here. I can't wait.

J and I are also trying to organise a quick trip to Melbourne to see Spamalot. I just love Monty Python and I've heard this is really good. Will be a bit of a rush but I hope we can organise it for when I'm on my holidays.

Now I plan on visiting everyone's blogs soon, but I'm going to just mark everything in my bloglines as read. It's just overflowing. So if I miss anything important, I'll apologise right now. Congratulations, commiserations, good luck etc for anything I miss. I hope you've all been well.

Oh and I don't know if I mentioned this but I'm really looking forward to my holidays in December...

Was going to say welcome back, but then I read the part about the month off... ;-)

Thanks guys :) Very nice on the ego to hear you missed me.

December is good for annual leave - with all the public holidays, I'm actually only taking 17 days of annual leave (carefully saved during the year so I can have a proper break).

Though I was talking to my mum and dad last night and it looks like they may not be able to spend as much time as they were planning. Dad was retiring on the 1st of December but now the company has officially made him redundant - BUT haven't given him a date. This means he's not able to give us an actual date that they'll be here. They're still coming but I'm not sure when now.

Yay! You're back!! I was just thinking yesterday I wish I had your email so I could check in on you since your break seemed to take forever. But it sounds like you are so refreshed. I love the way you wrote that sentence in rainbow! It conveys a lot of happy emotion that way! :-)
