On Holiday - Not!
Sigh. My husband is in bed. My kids are in bed. And I'm up at the crack of dawn doing ironing and aiming to get to the office early to do admin. It's nice to have them here, but it is hard that they are on holiday and I am not. My superintendent did offer me time off while they were here, but the Methodist leave system works that you get one weekend off in a quarter - unless you take leave in that quarter. Taking leave would mean that I don't get home to see them again before the end of the year. So I have rather negotiated an extra weekend off - so that I will be able to see them every six weeks or so. It's worth it to be working now. And I'm not exactly over-extended!
