    Finding it hard to kick my ass out the door this morning, last week or so I've felt burnt out just with trying to get as much done up to Xmas as poss and with also in mind not knowing what weather is going to be like, feel as if I need to grab as much good days as possible. Anyone else feeling gubbed yet?

    I have been the same, getting really ready for a break and feeling guilty knowing that I wouldnt get everyone done. I got rained off at 2.30 today and could feel the sense of relief. Its time for a break now. Sod the guilt. Lets enjoy and then hit the new year with a bit more enthusiasm.

    Now then.....wheres me beer??

    That is the thing the guilt is heavy but I couldn't have done any more than I have, today was forced to take a break as I was literally burnt out. Went and did some take aways this afternoon then collected. Going to finish commercial work tomorrow should be an easy couple of hours then that's me done as has been said let em moan.

    Thanks Mr Tay you know what there's some real kindred spirits around here and even though we may be scattered around the country we are together in the highs and lows it keeps me going because you can feel so alone out there at times so everyone's comradeship has been appreciated. Merry Christmas everyone.
