SO this is recess, and what have you done?
Another year over, nine weeks' holiday to come.
Not strictly true. Of course they will have a break, but it would be unfair not to say the vast majority of MSPs are actually working while the Parliament is closed.
If you are so inclined you could put it to the test by calling the constituency office if you have an issue that requires their attention and see how quickly they deal with your concern.
This last session saw a large number of new faces and of Glasgow's 15 city MSPs seven had been elected for the first time.
Some have made more of a mark than others, but none have disgraced themselves or let anyone down so far.
Humza Yousaf has made the most impact. Marked out as a rising SNP star, his confident and articulate television performances on the likes of Question Time have enhanced his reputation.
He also made useful contributions to the debate and committee scrutiny of the Offensive Behaviour At Football Bill.
Another young MSP, Drew Smith, elected on the Labour list, has also grown quickly into the role and has shown himself to be a confident debater, leading for his party on social justice issues, giving performances some with far more experience would struggle to match.
Ruth Davidson was the new Conservative face for Glasgow and her role as a list MSP was quickly overtaken by her elevation to party leader.
She must be careful not to neglect those who voted for her in as an MSP in the city, otherwise both positions could be lost.
The other newcomers are more experienced but have not carved out a high profile.
James Dornan, ex-SNP council group leader, has taken up many constituency issues, continuing his focus on local concerns and berating the Labour-led city council.
He has raised many constituency matters with ministers, understanding that people who vote for you want you to be on their side.
John Mason is a former MP also knows the value of maintaining a strong local presence and he has kept that up.
He also continued to show he won't always be dictated to by party bosses, abstaining on the vote to congratulate the Queen on her Diamond Jubilee.
Former council colleagues Hanzala Malik and Anne McTaggart probably never expected to be elected and that might explain why they have a lower profile.
Always in the chamber for questions and debates but not taking part too often. Seen but not heard.
