Well now you're turning into a bah humbug. I'd normally be against forced fun like that too but we had one last year and it was actually a bit of craic. I won a bottle of wine for worst jumper for my polo neck/cardigan combi. I missed this years one though so didnt have to get one

The ultimate dream is to be a musician for a living. It'll probably never happen, but a man can dream.

I got news that I got a promotion just before Christmas. I'll get more money but my terms & conditions will change so I'll work 2 more hours a week and get less holidays :(

I've still to figure out if there's a net gain.

I've 40 days this year. 34.5, plus 5.5 carried over.

When I get married they'll give me 6 days more for that year.

EDIT - 41 actually, Stephen's day is on a Saturday so we only get one day off for Christmas but a day added on to our days off

Nice. Kinda puts the lack of job satisfaction in perspective.

Yep. I'd 30 days, will now have 25. It was one of the better perks of the job. I work flexi time as well but with the extra hours those days will probably disappear as well.

I hate it more than ever now.

My new year's resolution is to get a new one, but to try and find something I'd like over something that pays well. Not that this even pays well enough.

Is that because you don't work full-time, though?

I get 25, plus bank holidays, xmas eve (usually), good friday (occassionally)
could get up to 11 days time off in lieu up last year too, had to give it up for the promotion.

although looking at my holiday report here, i'm carrying 11 days into this year, so i guess i didn't actually get to take those 11 days last year anyway!

I like my job! I'm finally doing what I want. The only problem is theres a couple of people I work with who i know don't like me.. i overheard someone say they hated me the other day lol

I'm not hurt or upset by it, it just means the job is a bit trying at times
