    I'm going to probably to do something productive and work-related over Christmas, over a bottle of red. But then I quite like my work so won't mind that.

      Working until at least 11:30pm Christmas Eve. Might have a day or two off after that, but that depends on whether anyone dies.
      Nope.

      I break up this Friday at midday and back in on Jan 2nd 8am - probably like most in the building industry.

      Those of you who are working unsociable hours over the xmas & new year hols, what is your employment? just find it interesting as to what type of jobs force the unsociable working hours.....
      Please buy from Amazon via this link. Thanks.

      Leave my current job today, after 2.5 very happy years here. A final meeting to have with the Government of Dubai Executive Council at 12 o'clock, then it's beer time.

      Start a new job on 2 Jan. After some 25 years working my way to the top in design agencies, this will be my first ever client-side role. And first time at a BIG corporate company, with hundreds of people, rather than just 30–70 as I'm used to. Not sure what to expect, or what it'll be like, but this is a key life moment for me. After a decent-enough career, with decent-enough money, I'm doing this conscious 'selling of my soul' for a couple of years so I can trouser some serious money, to set my children up for the starts of their lives. 2018 will be very different...

      I wish you th very best of luck in making the move! I suspect the biggest change you’ll notice (unless you’re very lucky) is that nearly everyone in a design agency passionately believes in the power of design; nearly everyone client-side does not, with many thinking its a waste of money. There are exceptions, of course, Apple, fashion, furniture, architecture...

      If you’re moving to an existing client, you’ll have been dealing mostly with the people who “get” design; they’ll represent perhaps 1% of the employee headcount.

      I say this not to put you off - just to set expectations of the (likely) huge cultural shift you’ll experience. If you can get your head straight, you’ll have a blast! If not, you can always go back...

      Have fun!
