Next week I am off for a month or so and now it's so terrible busy at work, lots of meetings, lots of work that has to be done and lots of work I have to hand over to colleagues of mine. Makes me feel cranky!
Ok, that's better now I shared it with you TP people.
Anyone has this same problem sometimes?

Im with you Michael - when l was getting ready to go off for a month work was hectic plus it was Christmas so l was trying to see friends & family before l went away! You end up getting so stressed and working until you are chucked out so that all loose ends are tied up! Just focus on the reason you are doing all this - your going off on holiday!!!!!!!!!!!! And think you will have that long haul flight to catch up on the lost sleep!

PS - how will you cope without posting on TP for a month

Thanks! I think that 11.35 hour flight to Hongkong will give me lots of opportunity to sleep indeed

I hope to find a computer now and then in Australia, did you back down in Oz? Oh well, maybe it's good not to post on TP for a while to get rid of the addiction.. ;) Although I have been on a low profile lately already

Yeah, I thought about it as well, but maybe I want to add some blogs during travelling. I will see, mostly when I don't travel by myself, I don't feel like going on the internet as well.

I kept a notebook/journal thing when l was away and from the notes l made l was able to do up my blogs when l got home and post my photos!

Unless I really need to, I never check internet when traveling. I spend too many hours behind a computer anyway, so it is good get away from that thing every now and then. like now.

Just think of how much you'll love the time for relaxation after all the work is finished...:)

Yes, simply quit your job and join the circus or a freak show.

It worked for me. Just ask wouterrr.
