Take a seat

By saltireblue    
Is this the benchmark for bench images...hardly, but this bench was more than good enough to let me sit down and take the weight off my feet.
Normally a waterfront area of Oslo that is buzzing with life, last Sunday it was somewhat deserted, despite the stores being open for Xmas shoppers and their gold and platinum credit cards.
Last day of work tomorrow before Xmas - over here we have Xmas day on the 24th and the equivalent of Boxing day on the 25th. Am off work until 2012...sounds good, doesn't it.

A very, very Merry and not least peaceful Xmas to all here on ePz, but especially to those of you who have supported and encouraged me the past year. I appreciate all your comments and advice.

Make sure you bother about someone who matters to you.

Aha, the Night Before Christmas! We British are the ones who have to wait an extra day for our presents . . . .
Extra strong lines and excellent recession.
An excellent Christmas to you and Mrs Salty. I support you on the peaceful element especially. One more upload from me, then a break in proceedings for a few days....
