So today is my last day at work before I go on leave for a week. Half of next week is practically Christmas anyway (Christmas Eve and Christmas Day) so it’s not going to be extremely restful. I tried to take my leave as close to Christmas as possible so that Rudi and I could be on leave together for a little while, but it will not be so. His tit of a boss is making him work till Tuesday, possibly Wednesday next week. His boss is going away today already and making the staff work until the last possible freaking day.
On the other hand, I won’t have to see my boss again till the 10th of January. Then…10 working days later, I’ll be on maternity leave and I won’t have to see him for 6 months. SCORE!
As per tradition Christmas Eve will be spent with my family. Everyone will come over to our house for something to eat and the opening of presents. Christmas Day will be spent with Rudi’s family. They still haven’t decided what they would like to do for Christmas. Rudi usually starts bugging them around June/July to find out what we are doing, they usually decide around the 24th of December. This arrangement has worked perfectly well for us in the past. We both get to spend Christmas with our families and I do see my family at church on Christmas morning before going off to the in laws.
Rudi hasn’t bought Christmas presents for his family yet, so I still have some wrapping to do. I also still need to get a present for Leebeesa. I don’t usually exchange Christmas gifts with friends, but she insisted and set a R20.00 limit for the gift. She used to be hard to shop for, now she is nearly impossible to shop for. Now that she is a vegan you can’t just buy her a box of chocolates or something…and to find something for R20.00 is damn near impossible.
So I have some data left on my bundle and I’m at home alone on Monday and Tuesday, so I’ll pop online (or spend the whole day online) to pass the time. Maybe I won’t disappear off the radar completely 🙂
