I don't know about you, but I am really looking forward to this long week-end. The last month or more has been pretty crazy. I am now into the third week of my 16 week arts course (which I am LOVING by the way) and working the other 3 days a week. When I have been at work, it has been frantic. Last week-end I was in Adelaide from early Saturday to late Sunday night during a record breaking heat wave and so all in all, there hasn't been much let-up at all. Busy busy busy. I feel like I am in need of 4 days of rest and relaxation.
Before I talk of my own plans however, first a bit of a sledging to MYER. I was in there today and asked what time they would be closing tonight... The reply? TEN PM. Come on MYER management. TEN PM?? That's a disgrace. Tomorrow is a public holiday - give your team a break. There are enough shopping hours in the year without creating more. Enough already.
Unlike the retailers employees, I am grateful to say I have finished up for the week and the week-end is well and truly started.
My Easter week-end is already expected to be pretty busy, but all things are fun and so it should be relatively easy to ease into some time out. Tomorrow we are heading to a local pub where all lunchtime contributions will be donated to Melbourne's Good Friday Appeal for the Children's Hospital. Count me in on that.
On Saturday we will be attending a friend's wedding in the Yarra Valley where we will stay overnight and then on Sunday we will continue on our way, for another couple of days out of the city. Sounds great and I am sure in the morning, following a good night's sleep and waking to the sound of the birds and not the shrieking of the alarm, I will be feeling more enthusiastic. Right now I just want to crawl into bed and sleep.
Have a happy Easter every-one. Enjoy the break.
