Two days good. Four days bad

I can not be the only person in the country who is itching to get back to work, surely?

Yes, I’ve had a lovely break – in a fantastic city and a gorgeous hotel with a truly lovely person – but I’ve had enough time off.

I’m bored.

I need to be back in the office.

I need to be busy.

I’ve already tidied my loft (yes I know!) and rearranged the studio.

And done three loads of laundry, changed the bed linen, done lots of guitar practice and sorted out ‘summer’ clothes for my wardrobe.

And I’ve only been back in the country 27 hours.

Maybe we could aspire to a few more three-day weekends spread throughout the year, rather than this four-day weekend malarky?

In other news, a new series of Big Brother starts tonight. I shall try to keep my addiction for rubbish television under control.

Yeah, right.

    you are assuming that all of us took the days off. In these four days I did a day in the British Library, wrote 2 book proposals, finished off a grant proposal, and wrote up student feedback. Oh, and 2nd marked 8 dissertations.

      Yes, I was giving you ‘the view from here’, rather than from anywhere else. You’ve been busy though. A few more four-day weekends and you’ll be miles ahead of the game! 🙂

    Well, excuse my French, but I’ve done fuck all this weekend.

    I’ve actually got the whole week off and am rather enjoying it – it’s the first bit of time I’ve had off work all year.

    I’m trying to be a bit productive, by tidying out the garage. But every time I get everything out, it rains and I have to put it all back.

    And you tidied your loft in less than a day? It would take me a week. At least.

    • Brennig says:

      Doing fuck all is reasonable for a weekend activity, especially for one who works as hard as wot you do.

      And the reason it only took a few hours to tidy my loft was because it had a big clear out in October.
