No day off here, too much good stuff going on.

Some people like a 4 day weekend, but by working on Friday I get to have a 1 day week, which is also pretty sweet.

DarthKermit: Are you? And if so, what are your plans today?

I'm going to knock a few more bricks down off my chimney after I've had brekkie.


Well, being self employed it really just depends if I have much to do!

I worked Xmas Day and Boxing Day this year and was working yesterday. So far today I have spent an hour talking to my web designer.

TBH public holidays become largely meaningless once you are not an employee!

Yep, same for me too. Mind you, other than a day off for many and an excuse for a "sale" at the shops, public holidays are rather meaningless to almost everyone.

I've taken today off too. Drive up to Turangi to get away from the city life :-)

One of the reasons I bugged out. If I'd thought of it earlier I probably could have rented my house out for a stupid price :-)

4 day weekend. Lunch with the Mrs at the Viaduct, with the rest of the day to relax and not think about work.

I took the Friday off, headed to Christchurch for an overnight road trip
Then spent the weekend doing nothing at home. Life good.

Also have the 3 days between Easter and ANZAC day off. Good planning on my side :-)

Took the Friday off as well, went down to Rotorua with the family on Wednesday night.
New job coming up so no more sneaky leave for me for a while :-p

And it probably wouldn't be used much anyway, good idea!

As have I ... that's ten consecutive days off for the "price" of three! :)
