Today marks the first day of the glorious four day weekend! Thanks Jesus!
Clever people who are not me (such as Joan, Ajax, Vincenzo, Heather, NotHeather, MrT, RightHandHarridan and just about everyone else) took the three days between Easter Monday and Anzac Day as annual leave – thus getting TEN DAYS holiday for the price of three.
Of course, not taking annual leave was fortunate because of afore-posted May miracles that Dr12 expects me to perform. I’d rather hoped not to spend the break thinking about SML, but it does so intrude at times like this.
Anyway to make the most of the four days, we’ve prepared a Giant to-do list, which has a ridiculous amount of tasks on it. Already Don has washed Panzo (thus saving $50) and I’ve de-cluttered and booked a hard-rubbish pick up to offload a desk and some doors which have been sitting in the garage for about a year.
This weekend (and ongoingly) we’ve employed Bessie as our quasi-cleaner. Being a poor student she is in dire need of cash because all of her parents are way too gainfully employed for her to qualify for government support. So this weekend she’s learning the art of dusting and bathroom (x3) cleaning. She’s doing a bang-up and very thorough job – we could become accustomed to this!
Tomorrow I’m hoping to sign up to the 24 hour gym, so I’m all prepared to jump on that treadmill on Wednesday afternoon.
