i'm on annual leave this week. just one week off but a week away from the office is just what the doctor ordered. over the past few years at this time of year i'd pack a bag and head south to the snow, however this year things have changed and my week off will be spent around the home which is great news as i have quite a 'to do list'. already on my first day off i've managed to tick a few items off that list. my parents are staying for a couple of days as we tackle the renovation of 'the spare room'. looking forward to posting the completed room in the not too distant future... *JOY.
