Back to work

5th January 2009 – 4.45 pm

Christmas is over for another year. The Company's enforced shut-down for the holiday week is over and it is back to business as usual.

I have had a wonderful Christmas. I had forgotten what I suggested people could get me as presents, leading to splendid, positive surprises as I got just what I wanted without knowing what I was unwrapping. My mum's Christmas cooking was fabulous, a hugely satsifying collection of tastes and textures.

I relaxed and indulged myself at home. I watched Iron Man and The Dark Knight on DVD, as well as already getting through most of the fourth series of The Wire. I ate Christmas pudding, mince pies, turkey sandwiches and cheese footballs, with a vow to return now to a more normal dietary intake. I played as much World of Warcraft as I could manage on my notebook computer and promised to get more involved again in EVE Online, taking steps that would encourage me to do so.

I ventured out both to local shops and those in London. Music shopping was unsuccessful, but I was able to pick up some new clothes, which included the most fabulous jacket, bought from a vintage shop. I am sure it is the same jacket I tried on earlier in the year, but it didn't quite fit before. The saleswoman suggested that it was the Christmas diet that made the difference. If so, I will be pleased even if the jacket only fits for a couple of weeks a year, it is that marvellous.

I even got an impromptu kiss on the cheek, perhaps with assumed mistletoe, from a perpetual crush of mine, which pretty much made my year.

Here's looking to 2009.
