Christmas plans

The boyfriend and I booked some flights last night. I’m actually going home for Christmas!!
This is something of a novelty. Last year I stayed in Germany because I had to work, the year before my flight was cancelled because London was engulfed in thick fog and they weren’t letting any planes in or out. So provided the weather doesn’t do anything nasty this year (fingers crossed please!) Jan and I will be arriving in Newcastle at around 10pm on Friday the 19th December. I can’t wait! Not because I’m a particularly big fan of Christmas. I’m just looking forward to the time off. And of course it will be good to see my friends and family, drink alcohol on (gasp) week nights and for once try to pretend I actually have a life outside of work (and the internet). It will also be an excellent opportunity to ignore the fact that the end of January is D-Day, with the D in this case standing for “decision”. You see, 31st January is the last day of my internship… that’s when the boss will be deciding whether to keep me on as a fully-paid employee or not. Waah, I get nervous just thinking about it!
