The Season to be Jolly


It is so cold this morning, my car was covered in ice and it took ages to clear it so that I could see where I'm going, it was a very foggy morning too. I usually don't dress in heavy clothes and most of the time just wear a shirt or T shirt then a warm jacket, this morning I put on a jumper for a change and that's only because at my office I don't have the heating on, there is a massive radiator just behind my desk that if I turn on would probably heat all of London but it is permanently off and that is by my choice as I hate direct heat that is so close, this heater used to give me big headaches, I actually prefer to sit wearing my jacket than being roasted by a radiator!, even going to bed I much prefer a cool room with a warm duvet than a hot room where you end up just struggling to sleep because of over heating.

It is coming up to the holiday season here, usually at this time most people cant be bothered with working hard and just waiting for the holiday to start, I am extra lucky this year as it is Eid next week and get to have 2 extra days off work, the week after I am only getting 2 days off work for the Christmas holiday as other days have already been booked by other staff, that will be the first time I work during Christmas week in the past 7 years, I must make sure I book my holiday early next year. The kids will start their holiday next week, Wednesday was supposed to be their last day at school but the school decided to close on Wednesday as it is Eid, many schools in London close on main religious occasions, how cool is that for kids of other religions? that's why I love London, great city.

Well it is for sure the season to be jolly, Eid & Christmas holidays, double celebration, double the joy :o)

Salam Anglo-Libyan,
Brrrrrrrrrrr I had to pull a blanket over my shoulders just reading your post. Believe me my friend it's a good thing we don't work together because if I were their the boiler would be going all the time. LOOOOOL I love to see the ice, snow, etc however, I like to do it from a position of being warm and toasty. :-)

Yep, everyone here too is getting very distracted with shopping, holiday parties and generally focusing on anything but work. In fact some seem to get a little irritated if you bring up work issues. Oh well---it's all good.

عيدكم مبروك يارب
وان شاء الله يجيكم الجو حلو
اختي قالتلي ان في شوية اشعة شمس بس الدنيا برا صقع هلبة

حتي احني الجو عندنا بدي يصقع ومطر هاليومين تبارك الرحمن سبحان الله احني العيد الكبيرة بدت مربوطه بالمطر الصقع
لمبكري صار بيني وبين خوي نقاش علي المطر قتله احلي جو في العيد جو المطر ممكن حني مانحسوش فيها لان نخشوا في القراج بس يظل حلو...
ومش عارفه لو في ليبيا ينزل ثلج كيف حايكون الجو ...


اني نحب فصل الشتي هلبة ونحب نطلع في المطر ونحب نتفسح في عز الصقع واحلي ذكرياتي كانت في الشتي وفي الصقع


قول يارب وربي يسخر الي فيه الخير

Hi:
Yes that's true. I think we r lucky this year as christmas is close to Eid Eludha. myself I couldn't have Eid day Off, but will be light working day so hopefully will enjoy the rest of the day. some muslem friends from other nationalities arranged like muslem gathering for Eid. I got feeling it will be good weather on Eid day...let's see.

It's been relatively cold here in Tripoli too, I mean we're not used to having a temperature of 6 or 7 C here in Tripoli, for some reason the cold weather in Tripoli seems harsher than it used to seem back in Canada!! or maybe I am just getting old? yalla.. wish you happy joyful double holidays :o) as for us here Eid holiday starts on Tuesday (elwagfa) and THANKS to DAD he gave us the following Saturday off.. :o)
