Christmas – working or not working?

How long will you take off for the Christmas period?



I don’t know about you but I get the feeling that the UK starts to shut/wind down for Christmas as soon as the last firework has fizzled out.


Asking around some of my self-employed chums (I love that word, it evokes aromas of ginger beer) – it would appear most of us will be at our desks up to 24 December and back at them on 29 December.

Some of us will even slip out of the family festivities – grandpa snoring, grandma sipping sherry, and head to the office (upstairs, in the garden, in the loft) and deal with ‘stuff’.

Apparently, ‘Three quarters of UK small business owners work throughout their holidays….’

My employed hubby  – well, let’s just say I have jobs planned for him!

Happy Christmas and here’s to a wonderful New Year

  1. Ah – I am making a very detailed list and scheduled for the offspring and their dad, all three of whom finish work/school this week. Me, with my busiest month ever, will be working as much as I can get away with… Certainly up to Christmas Eve lunchtime and then back to it on the Saturday – needs must. It is going to be a massive help having himself there to take care of everything else, though.

    Have a lovely Christmas, Suzie.

  2. You too, Barbara – and look forward to seeing you on the other side 🙂

  3. Two weeks. Oh yes. (seriously)
