I'd have spent the best of two days travelling to get to a 1 day event and it would have cost me more than getting down south used to with the increase in air fares, plus I don't fancy spending forever going through heathrow's new security procedures. My excuse for July is that I've pretty much run out of leave from work going on a course, keeping a week for summer and the odd day for here and there and 3 or 4 days together would eat considerably into those.

Does your work holiday year operate a bit strangely then?

Fair enough, makes sense I suppose.
Our holiday year used to match the financial year, but was moved when I joined to match the Dixons year instead.

Ours runs from the start of February. There's nothing much weird about it, the reason I need to keep a week to take in the summer is that we're planning a week's holiday but that's as far as we've got.

Azathoth, any reports on the event?

I'm crossing my fingers that I'll be going in July, I haven't been to an event since the last Large Sad When I get back to work I'll book the time off and see how it goes from there.
