...and all that.
I've finished work for the year Apparently since the end of June I've managed to take just one single day of holiday, so I'm probably due a break!
Presents are all bought and wrapped up, I've made (and scoffed) a lot of mince pies, and currently cooling in my kitchen is a mincemeat and marzipan tealoaf. yum yum.
Christmas shopping has been a bit of a dangerous one this year. As well as sucessfully buying all required presents, I seem to have treated myself to quite a few bits and bobs. A book, some poi, and today I mostly-accidentally bought myself a new camera. Er, oops.
In my defence, I've been after a new one for at least a year, and would have bought it in the sales if Canon weren't ending their £50 cashback offer tomorrow...
Other than that, it's still not snowing Gloucester seems to have done a very good job of entirely avoiding all the snow. Venture a few miles down the road into the Forest and there's plenty of it, but none here. Rubbish!
The news tells me that the entire country has ground to a halt, but all that means is that London/the South East got some.
My current favourite source of info is the #uksnow map. Geeky. And bonus points for being a useful use for twitter!
