The end is nigh...

Wednesday has arrived and the Christmas spirit is in full swing not least because of the weather.

You can keep up with your weather (on iOS) with this:

Now according to the Myans, their calendar is going to end along with the rest of the world on the 21st of December 2012. Personally I think they've got that wrong - what with them being dyslexic and all - and it would be so much neater if it we today at 12 minutes past 12 on the 12th day of the twelfth month of the twelfth year of the second millennium. Ah... Yes, that wouldn't work would it. We're 10 millennia too early.

So the next chance will be at 3 minutes past 3 in the morning on the 3rd of March 3003... A little while yet then.

Regardless, if the Myans are right, I'm alright Jack. We already had Christmas and with any luck none of us will have to endure the JLS Christmas special on the telly.

Today sees me back on the train up that Laaandan, but this time strictly for pleasure. Mrs G, daughter and I are going to spend some quality family time being tourists and doing a bit of Christmas shopping. Expect mulled wine from borough market and gaping at the overpriced elephant statues in Harrods (probably).

On the work front, I'm pretty much out of a job at the moment, so a couple of days holiday is actually really useful. I'm sure it'll ramp up again, but Christmas is looking like its going to be pretty quiet. I have to thank my lucky stars I'm not on contractor - even if most of the time it feels like I am.

Right - gotta dash - here comes Paddington.... again.

PS - next time I'm going to tell you what the X37 is really up to
