well that's it. finish work for christmas today and 2 weeks to just chill with karen, the kids and charlie. i feel mentally exhausted from the year just gone but hope to find some clear head space with some nice long runs over the coming weeks. we popped out this morning for a quick one at 5.30 and it was fantastic. a crisp cool morning with stars and the moon (well ok 1/5 of it) lighting the sky. it fitting way to end my working year. the break will also mean firming up plans for 2009 and getting entries sorted. Happy Christmas!
