More like treacle - the quiet time of the year at work for me is may to july, always feels like forever. This time I'll have a lot of admin etc, to sort for my successor, but it'll still be a PITA to get through the terms.
Hurrah! But please be careful. I had a colleague who was counting down, not just by the day, but even by the hour. She fell off a horse, broke her leg, and missed the zero hour whilst hobbling on crutches!
