Anyone participating?

Yeah but I'd get to leave 30 min early.

Some people will have to make sacrifices for the good of the many, and I'm afraid you're it

Yeah, I'm meeting my mate for a drink when he finishes work today (I'm currently unemployed) and so I sent that to him and he said "I'm not staying late" :lol:

Nope. I normally finish around 4.45 but as my boss and his boss are both WFH today I may well celebrate the national day today too

I left Cyprus and I am going back to work in Lincolnshire....boooooooooo hissssssss. Still though I've had a very cushy six months of not much weather, more pay and lots of lovely free time.

I have drank lots of gin.

I have 2 weeks off now before I go back to Lincolnshire.

I often wonder this. I could count on one hand the times I've sent an email on a Friday and someone has actually responded.

Got my final exam result last week and I'm now a fully qualified accounting technician (level 4 aat). I can now apply for full membership to the association but the qualification alone should be enough to help find a new job for now. Spoke to my wife tonight and I think I'll be going ahead with my original plan and handing my notice in at the end of the month.

Will work the ridiculous 3 months they ask for and finish on the last day of December. Will likely start looking for a new job on December. I'm terrified but I feel it needs to be done for my own sanity.

So do GRCadians get a discounted rate on getting their taxes done?

You're giving yourself 30 days to find a new job? Including Christmas. :dread:
