If you're not already on holiday, be assured that you've almost reached that magical moment when it's time to turn your "out of office" response on, gather up your Christmas cards and Secret Santa prize, and head for home.
For some, the stresses and strains of Christmas with the in-laws often outweigh those felt in the workplace. But hopefully you don't fall into that category.
For our part, Vanessa and I would like to offer our heartfelt thanks to everyone who has helped us get VANBAR associates off the ground over the past few weeks.
And as we look forward to 2015, we do so with real confidence, enthusiasm and the expectation of a year to remember.
But we'll give that more thought on Friday 2 January.
In the meantime, I'll leave the last word to Mrs White.
