    I’d wish you a happy holiday, but I’m certain that both Astrid and Sandra don’t know how to stop working. I am happy that you consider the past year a success. I am also very proud that you let me be a member of the pack. Working with you has been a wonderful experience, even though (tongue in cheek) hard, bitter and unjust 🙂

    I wish you — and that includes Daniela and any of your close friends — a merry christmas and a happy new year.
