I've put a countdown clock on the side bar here to count down the time until New Year. This year has been horrendous for myself and my family, and I cannot wait for it to be over! The only other year that can anywhere near match (and actually beat) this one is 1992, which was Queen Elizabeth's "Annus Horribilis" too! I know it probably has nothing to do with the actual year, but (as the saying goes) New Year, new start...
It still feels strange to me having time off work. Having worked in schools for several years, and therefore only taking time off at the same time as all my colleagues, my being at home when I know everyone else is still in the office makes me feel quite guilty... I'm sure it will pass as time goes on!
