Hi guys! Hope you all have had enjoyable, relaxing, or at least civil Christmases :) It's been very quiet for me, as I didn't quite get enough days off in a row to make flying home feasible (4 days and $1100 when it takes a 4-hour flight and a 4-hour drive to get there means the 4 days don't end up being much... and the SO can't tolerate red-eyes which is irritating!). So I've had good times with a combination of church, work friends, and other friends, and have enjoyed... well mostly doing nothing. And the weather has not been too hot- I haven't turned on the air con yet!**
I would most certainly be up for a meetup, but in reality I probably have the least of a holiday shutdown***, so I think I should just get the ball rolling, state when I am and may not be available, and we go with what suits the majority. Alternatively I am more than happy to meet up with people in smaller groups or individually on a more casual basis. I have lots of coffee and shortbread to share at my place! :)
- Monday (tomorrow?!?)- available.
- Tuesday and Wednesday- limited service at work, basically I need to turn up in the morning, see if there is anything to do, and if it gets to early afternoon and there's nothing (50:50 chance), then I'll dismiss my team and we'll only return if something crops up.
- Thursday (bearing in mind this is NY day) I am free.
- Friday- same as Tuesday and Wednesday
- Weekend- available.
** This is not meant to be a 'share your badassity' statement, just a measure of how mild the summer is. My house despite being from the 50s or 60s has some decent design sensibilities such that the air-con can remain off for quite a bit of the time.
*** For those that know what I do, this is one of the busiest times for year for us.
