Monday is the last day for the staff until Jan 2. I will be in a bit during the break to get organized, as I'm on vacation for 2 weeks in Jan. I gotta get away from this snow and cold.

Officially finished today, but in tomorrow to do some deliveries.

Be in a day or two over the holidays to do a few extra jobs.

Really only had 5 or 6 days off this year as we've been so busy, so in need of a proper period of down-time.

Third year working with Kamran as 'AW Signs' and we've not killed each other as the dynamic pretty much works.

Sadly many of our customers don't believe that 'suppliers' are allowed time off...even the ones just back from weeks away in warmer lands.

Great to now be in a position to pick and choose who we do work for and no longer taking on any and all work to pay wages...even to the point of dropping ones throwing strops about my inability / unwillingness to work more than 12 hour days to get their low profit jobs done....bluff suitably called after they rant that they'll go elsewhere..."see ya"...had one guy actually BEGGING with pleading, pleeeeeease and sad eyes after being given the options "money, all the money up front today and it will get done....or it won't be. Cash is king...you pay, you join the queue otherwise don't even look at it."

Face tripping him today when we handed back his whole £100 deposit that's meant to motivate me into spending twice that on materials and a full day labour...

Were closing on Sunday at 17h00......


.....But I'm likely working until Tuesday Night sometime.

Wednesday at my mom's, and then me and the wife and kids are going on our first "holiday" in 3 years......from Thursday until Sunday :o

I'm going "walkabout " in the Namib desert. I'm praying that I will NOT see another human being. Four delicious days of drinking beer, and exploring the oldest desert on earth with my wife and kids. And me 4x4... :D

After that I hope the batteries will be charged for the year ahead.

I think I work to much. 14 - 16 hours per day, sometimes for up to 5 months on end 7 days a week. And then after 1 Sunday at home, it is 7 days a week again for a month or 2.

Some time ago my daughter told me "one of her teeth are loose" - Next time I saw her awake there were 4 or 5 teeth missing :o Is it worth it??

OK, Depressed rant over! Merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year to you all!

I'm finishing up at Midday on Tuesday. Then I'm off until after the new year starting back on Monday 6th January. Really looking forward to a decent break (though it will be a bit of a busmans holiday as I'm planning to spend a few days wrapping my beloved Capri during the holiday) :-?
