Hi all,

Seems I have odd days off this week. What days does everyone else have off for the Eid break?

Tues - Thur.

In AD this would have been Mon-Thur, or maybe even the whole week.

None for me. Work.

*grins*

Don't mind at all. I hadn't made plans to go away and I get to add the holidays to my annual leave balance. Next year I will have a minimum of 32 days as of 1 January.

... but you can't take it. We fired a girl who took 50 days off, we decided that if we could cope without her for 50days we didn't need her so just fired on her return

I won't be taking all 32 days plus any additional days I may (will) incur for working on the odd weekends, all at once.

But it means five or even six lovely holidays scattered throughout the year.

Officially MTW, but will be working because a) public holidays are part of my total leave days, so will save them to take when I go home, b) 2 days off per week is enough here, c) we're the front for our various companies around the world who'll be working and who will probably be in touch, and d) it'll be quieter so can catch up on the 1,347 un-read items in my inbox...

Remember to pack your brolly. The golf there has been halted by rainstorms.
