    I'm not. When I was younger, I always imagined it would be horrid to work on xmas day. But now i think it would be quite nice - quiet etc (no disrespect to you guys in control rooms - I'm sure you're still busy) but imagine the atmosphere and spirit is really nice compared to a normal day?

    Wish it was quiet... its been mad since we started, so much for Xmas spirit :(

    But the atmosphere isnt bad, weve got a wee buffet set up with nibbles and the Sgts are cooking us a 3 course meal.

    Not the same as being at home but at least were making a wee effort... roll on 2230!!! :party0049:

    Ah that's a shame. Must be good comfort knowing you're at work doing a service that people need tho (true Christmas samaritan!)

    Buffet sounds good. How is it Atkins-wise?

    Thank you all you wonderful people who keep the world spinning whilst we're scoffing turkey and chocolates. I for one know how important it is to be there on the phone or on the wards when we need you xxx
    I had 2 major incidents this year and the compassion I was shown when in crisis will live with me forever.

    i was at work today, from 07.30 until 20.00. but took me till 9 to get home, the roads are terrible, just sheer ice, lots of accidents around here today.

    we were really busy today, lots and lots of people falling on the ice and ending up spending christmas day with us instead of their families.

    Aw, big loves to all the christmas shift workers - I did that until I had my children, and then stopped!

    Hope you really enjoy whatever time you get off this week. :)
