Right - I'm officially declaring this week National-Take-Advantage-of-Working-From-Home week - as in recent weeks i've just been slaving away from the moment I left the childcare centre to the moment I walked back in so I think it's time to make sure I get some of the benefits of this job rather than just the hassles (such as having to clean up everyone's breakfasts before I even start). Now I'm afraid the celebrations of this week won't apply to you full-time mums, as we all know what you do isn't classed as work - purely for the reason that there would be no union in the world which would approve of the working conditions - 14 hour days (if you are lucky!), no tea or lunch break, no private toilet breaks, and then of course there's having to deal with hazardous waste on a regular basis. And obviously the pay leaves something to be desired.
So anyway- back to me. My aim is to run every day, and also swim once and kayak once. And tomorrow while I make roses and figurines I am going to watch a DVD. ha. Read it and weep office people!
I think Jon is declaring this week National-Get-Zero-Hours-Sleep as he never made it to bed at all last night and he's hasn't been to bed before 1am for a week or so.
ps. In breaking news I've just experienced a Working-From-Home 'low' as the six builders working on pouring concrete outside the kitchen window just decided to have a beer belly competition.
