we stopped today - no work for the next two weeks. apart from service work, is this Christmas break still being used across your end of the building trade and construction? thing is, nowadays lots of the suppliers now remain open over the period. but i dont see the value in attempting to do days here and there with over half the crew missing in the pub or Spain. and good luck to them - we dont have the old site winter mud baths but there's still the weather, and a couple of guys were telling me about working last week on a green field row of shells with the wind whistling through all day, half light and a failing generator. a day in our lives.
