I am working over Xmas apart from Xmas and Boxing Day
pettsey Just means my wife making Christmas dinner all by herself this year result my dinner in microwave when I get home unless my son in law brings in to work for me in his car 😜
r29ssy Only good things I like about it is not being involved in the annual arguments plus double pay result lol 👍
pauldunbar1234 I did, when I was a hospital porter. Married men with families used to fight to do the morning shift. Treble time... out of the way while their wives did the cooking... then home for the afternoon of eating and drinking.
r29ssy 'Not looking forward to the two night shifts'
I hated night shifts when I did them one week out of three. Plays havoc with your digestion and sleeping patterns.
I struggle sleeping past 3-4 hrs after a night shift , and after 2 days followed by 2 nights my body clock is all over the place .
pauldunbar1234 I'm not sure yet.
pauldunbar1234 I'll get a few days off other wise working
r29ssy I know how you feel
I'm volunteering over Xmas. I think that counts.
Christmas eve. Christmas day. Boxing day then home it is.
theashcooper Well done you what you volunteering for soup kitchen or sumat 👍
The local OAP luncheon club is putting on a dinner for those with no family, and I have been roped into being a taxi, as I can drive a minibus due to having an older driving licence with the correct rights. No sherry for me until the evening I am afraid.
pauldunbar1234 i will be working
pauldunbar1234 its a No for me.
pauldunbar1234 a couple of hours on christmas day and new years day off.not too bad for me
