My dears, I am taking some time off to hibernate. I have been pushing myself beyond my limits for months: I can’t even remember the last time I took a full weekend off, let alone worked normal hours.
I need to eat good food; play in my art journal; have long lazy baths; read a big pile of books; watch some dumb films; hang out with my much-neglected family and generally recharge my batteries for the coming year.

If you’re celebrating, I wish you a joyous and stress-free holiday season. And if you’re not celebrating, I wish you a joyful and stress-free time anyway because I love you – look on the bright side, you’ll get to buy discounted biscuit selections and cheap cheese soon.
I will be back at work on Mon 3rd January 2011. If you’re waiting for completed work from me, don’t worry, I haven’t forgotten about you. Your work is scheduled (I made a database!) and I expect to be fully caught up by the second week of January. If you need to speak to me, I won’t be answering any email until the 3rd but I will be on Twitter intermittently.
