I've had the equivalent of nearly two weeks back at work, split up by Christmas and New Year. I can't say I love it. What I can confirm, is that it is the people there that make it worthwhile and that without them, it would be much more painful. From the people I work with, to the people that I work for.
And that is what life is about, really. The people.
I think I can safely say that I am lucky, because everywhere I've been, I have managed to find good people. Some better than others, some I'm more compatible with, but there have always been people.
