          Sorry to hear you're gonna be offshore for Christmas Callum, ..wouldn't fancy that much myself. My house is directly under the flight path of the choppers heading out to the rigs, ..so I'll make sure to give you a wave as you fly overhead, Bud. I hope they give you a good Christmas dinner, ..I can imagine you'll be partaking of a sherry or two upon your return in the New Year . All the best!

                  Unlucky Duff, I'm not in the same boat but my dad is off at Christmas and gets home on the 30th.

                  Does the rig make a big fuss about Christmas to make up for the fact you're offshore?
