Gosh, I am just reading all the posts and I am the total opposite!! For the first year ever I am taking Xmas eve off!!! But going in on Sunday 23rd (I'm usually off sun & mon) at the moment I'm fully booked on the 22nd and 23rd. Only a few spaces left on the 21st!!!! So I'm off on Xmas eve, Xmas day and boxing day. I normally take the 27th off but I'm going on holiday on the 30th dec....clients in an uproar!!!...so I'll be in 27th, 28th, 29th and I'm full on the 28th and 29th....and it's only bl00dy october!!!!!
