Because private joke titles are amusing.
Apologies for my long absence; though, I suspect with the holiday merriment most of you haven’t noticed my disappearance. I apologise anyway. I worked the whole of last weekend, all of Christmas Day and all of Boxing Day too (with no extra pay for the bank holiday hours).
I would, in fact, have been working Christmas Eve too if the restaurant hadn’t been closed that night. Yesterday, I organised a meal with friends and today I went to peruse the January sales with my lovely other half.
I say this a lot, but it strikes me that the end of this year is dramatically different for me than the start of it.
