Off on me 'olidays…

Hiyas all,

I've been a bit quiet on these boards recently, keeping up to date with them but only commenting when they're blatantly wrong about me (see!

While at Deloitte, two times a week I was being bought drinks, taken bowling, bought meals at fancy restaurants or even taken clubbing, all on the company's expense of course, so was getting back at 11 most nights. This ended up meaning I was a bit lame the rest of the week, and was generally too tired to do much but collapse in front of a TV or play a couple of hands of poker!

The work itself was variable. I started by doing some interesting research on "hot" versus "freshly baked" food (don't ask…), but ended doing a lot of photocopying, envelope stuffing and other not-quite-so-interesting tasks. One day I was even sent on a walk to get a partner's bag as they couldn't take it in to the cricket.

It's over now though, and I celebrated by talking to relatives saying the same story about 40 times on Saturday for my parent's silver wedding anniversary party. It was interesting to hear what they were all up to, and to see that one friend of the family is now the spitting image of Austin Powers…

As some of you will know I'm off to the Trans-Siberian Railway tomorrow for a month long trip with Tim S and Andy R. Because of this I now feel a lot poorer than I did a week before: it's amazing how much you need for a trip like this, especially when your trousers are almost all jeans and your shorts all have holes or about-to-be-holes. I now feel I'm fully prepared though, with my 3 Sudoku books (3 for 2 at Waterstones!) and malaria tablets ready!

I'll try and post to this or e-mail out while I'm out there but this may be sporadic, especially while in the backwoods of Siberia.

I hope you all have a fantastic last month of the holidays, or more/less if you're going into the Real World, and I'll see you in late September,
