    I hope your eating well Martin. MrJudi went through periods of tiredness when he first started working away but he didnt eat particularly well which i dont think helped..... but being successful at it, and being rewarded for it, did loads for his self worth and confidence.

    Well done for being so successful, youve earned it!

    Firstly, congrats on all the hard work you do, in all spheres.

    Secondly, go and enjoy your holiday. You really deserve it. However, I hope you won't be taking your laptop with you and preferably not your mobile either (or at least don't keep it switched on) On a serious note, if you do 'keep in touch' with the office etc, then you never get a break and you really do need to unwind and recharge your batteries. We'll all be here when you get back and I'm sure the people at MoneySaving Towers will keep everything ticking over for you.

    Just remember the sun block, if you're going to be sunning yourself in the Caribbean or wherever :D Have a great Xmas, where-ever you are. :wave:

    Enjoy your holiday, I'm sure you got yourself a tremendous deal. Certainly sounds like it's well deserved. There will always be stuff in the intray, best to take care of yourself and switch off for a bit otherwise you'll burn yourself out. As my dad always says, your health is your wealth. Have fun and chill out, laptops and mobiles aren't suited for use on the beach...

    I don't log on very often but when I do I am impressed with what I read and it all comes back to you. I hope you enjoy your holiday - you deserve it - and if you don't you only have yourself to blame for thinking too much about the job.
