It’s really hard to concentrate in the office with Christmas this week and the last day being tomorrow. Everyone’s kind of flitting about getting bits and bobs done, but not really focusing. It doesn’t help that it’s bloody cold (1°C or 34°F, though it feels like it’s in the 20’s) and dark by 3:30 in the afternoon. Most definitely am not looking forward to the commute home or the slow walk home from the station on ice. Ugh.
Looking forward to a nice break after tomorrow–as well as the move in closer to the city next week. I guess I’ve started the blog at a bad time, as we won’t have an internet connection until after I’m already back at work on the 4 January. Hopefully a neighbor will have an unsecured connection that we can leech off of for a few days.
