The Masked Tulip

Well, That's The Country Shut Down For 3 Weeks

Recommended Posts

Dunno ... I work from home so am not terribly bothered by bank holidays etc...

I barely know when school holidays are due - it always comes as a suprise when my lad says "oh yeah we break up tomorrow"...

:)

I did hear on the radio that it's 12 days off for lots of people ...

I have to confess to being a semi-public sector* slacker who has done precisely that. All I can say in my defence is that in my previous life working in the cinema industry, I would have been guaranteed to work 14-hour shifts straight through the forthcoming holiday period. In some ways I quite enjoyed it - no family rows and so on, and a lot of our customers were people coming to escape the precise same syndrome. A Kinoton DP-70 projector does not shout at you when you press the motor start button while monumentally hung over, unlike a family member of an older generation if you attempt to interact with them in a similar state.

* The 'semi' is because the income of my employing organisation comes partly from the taxpayer (around 30%) and partly from other sources (70%).

Ah! That makes sense! I've been wondering why all the car parks are so empty while it's school holiday...

Presumably a lot of people will be taking their kids out of school for the Easter/Wedding week, for a holiday, so they don't use up so much of their annual leave?

Normally you can't get a parking space anywhere till late afternoon in the school holidays - I'd been wondering if belt tightening meant people hadn't been going into the city, or if petrol peices were affecting car usage - but actually it's probably judicious use of annual leave?

Or should I say just the office types?

Yes.

We're not getting the royal wedding day, and the May day Monday is postponed until the end of the month.

I'm working 3 days next week (just got back from a 2 week hol !). I'm working the following week as well, bar easter mon.

I'm looking forward to an easy commute, easy parking, and a quiet office. We were Cyprus at the beginning of this week, and there was a noticeable surge in UK holidaymakers from last sat onwards.

We're off for the summer in a couple of weeks and I've just realised that there are only five more normal weekdays before we leave instead of eight.

It's going to be a bit tight buying all the bits and pieces I want, I've just had to cancel an online order because there aren't enough working days to guarantee delivery before we go.
