All Quiet on the Christmas Front

You know, I've achieved more in the couple of days since I finished work than I have in the past few weeks.  Apart from writing and posting a new story on The Sleaze, I've also completed the first of what, hopefully, will be the first of a new series of podcasts for the Overnightscape Underground, which should be posted any time soon.  I'm already editing together a second which, fingers crossed, should get posted this weekend.  I'm also hoping to get this year's Christmas video edited together and posted tomorrow.  Exciting times!  Otherwise, it has all been nice and quiet for these first couple of days of my festive break.  Which is how I like it.  Indeed, my aim this Christmas is to see as few people as possible.  I've got my seasonal socialising out of the way already - I met a friend for a couple of festive pints last night. I've only got the family visiting on Christmas Eve to get out of the way now before I can lock my front door and install myself on my sofa for the duration. 

All of which are yet more arguments for reducing my working hours next year.  One of the problems I have now is that I spend so much time at work having to deal with arseholes that I'm left with no desire to interact with anyone when I'm not working.  It is also so draining of my strength that I just don't have the energy to do much when I've finished work, either.  The long and the short of it all is that I need to be spending more quality time with my model railway, my Tassimo coffee maker, watching schlock movies, anything, in fact, which isn't work.  Because it really is sapping my strength.  The degree to which my unhappiness with my work situation has come to dominate my every waking hour is witnessed by the number of times I've mentioned in my posts here during the run up to Christmas - something I do apologise for.  Hopefully, now that I'm off work for a while, I can start steering things back to their normal subject matter.
