Retired!but in spite of having no Scottish blood but a large Pagan streak I've always preferred New Year. In the mob I had to take it as it came.

Finish on 22nd - it would have been Friday 19th, but someone bright spark in the estates department decided to do HV maintenance on the Sunday - so need to be back in on the Monday to reboot servers, thin out 12:00 and that's it until 5th Jan.
