Well, I was going away, but now I'm at home. So it's a Lean Cuisine, a bottle of Pinot Noir and series 2 of The Tudors. Oh and I have a good book.

Err, neither really. Just want to get back to work, hate sitting around doing nothing all day and really can't understand how people are happy to live like that.

The only thing I'm excited about is the Euro / GBP exchange rate. Since accepting the offer, which is in Euros, salary increase has been 10% already! Awesome lol

I'll raise a glass to you then MH, and perhaps Anna can toast you with her Sancerre.......... I don't have any Revels to share though, but I do have some very nice organic dark chocolate if you fancy a bit!
