It’s Friday – thank goodness. I’m so ready for it.
Do you know I was expected to turn up and work 4 whole days this week?
ON THE TROT!
Not just four random days spread across a month, but four consecutive days IN ONE WEEK!
If that isn’t bad enough, my house has had hardly any chocolate in it throughout this arduous stretch of labour.
How is a guy supposed to cope?
I’m used to living in a home that is full of treats, and taking time off work during this Easter and Royal Wedding break.
I took the ‘magic three days’ off work too, which was an absolute brilliant piece of thinking.
For those non British or vaguely educated among you, here’s how it worked…
Easter weekend meant that Good Friday (22nd April) and Easter Monday (25th) were holidays. Then Friday 29th was a holiday for the Wedding and Monday 2nd May was ‘May Day’ bank holiday. Therefore because I booked April 26th,27th & 28th off work, I actually had 11 consecutive days at home for the price of 3. How class is that? The weather turned out to be summer holiday standard too – making it a brilliant time to be lounging about at home playing and working my way through a stash of chocolate eggs.
Being back at work and chocolate free has been a bit of a shock to the system I can tell you.
Anyway, I need to go and have a bit of a lie down now; I have to prepare myself for next week’s seemingly impossible 5 days of commuting. That’s like practically every day (mostly).
It’s just a good job we have another bank holiday at the end of this month, otherwise I don’t think I would survive it all!
