The holiday problem has been alleviated to an extent. By special dispensation I've been allowed to carry over ten days instead of the usual five, and I'm taking a couple of days off this week. (It's the girls' half-term.) So, I'll only be losing five days - that's my best yet!
Still, I'm probably only postponing the issue. I'll probably find myself with thirty days to use up next February.

Why not take 3 weeks off and build a streaming media player or the like?
Worked for me!
Um, the holiday problem is only a problem if you don't take any holiday. It ceases to be a problem if you take the holiday. Solution - take your holiday. Am I missing something?
Ah, yes, but to do that I have to *book* the holiday. *That's* the problem - I need to work out *in* *advance* when I'm going to be doing things. That kind of organisational feat is beyond me now that I'm single.
Frankly, if it wasn't for Christmas and my mother and sister organising summer holidays, I'd probably never take any holiday at all.
Right - there's a challenge. I obviously need to do better.
How about you book the time off work and then book the holiday? That way, if you don't get round to organising yourself properly you still get the time off work. Win win.
Take some time off work you sad old git. You would be amongst the first to advise other people to to do it.
Ah-ha - taking a page from Tulna's book there Simon?
Katherine's right, book the time off anyway and then worry about what you'll do - at leats youknow you won't be at work.
And Steve's right too - you're a plum for not having booked something off, and would call anyone else who did tat the same! I remember you though Tulna was quite clever for doin gthe same thing last year....
