Hitting the road ...

Monday is our last public holiday until November. I'm not sure if it is particularly cruel to make us all work through the grey of winter without a day off to look forward to, or particularly good planning to stop excessive sickies when the weather is nice and no one wants to be at work. I wonder if that applies in other countries too - are there more public holidays in winter or summer?

Anyway, the boy and I are off for the weekend. The forecast for the weekend is for cold, foggy mornings, and crisp clear days. I'm looking forward to enjoying red wine next to the open fire, the roast I've got planned for Sunday night, dinner out tonight (and the nice people where we are staying are driving us there and back!), and wandering around new towns and places. I've remembered to pack my camera, so hopefully some photos when I get back.

Siiiigh -- going through a dry spell in terms of public holidays too. I guess it's time to dip my fingers in the cookie jar of personal holidays ;)

Goodness, how do they expect you to get through winter with no breaks to look forward to?!

Sound like you had a good weekend planned. As much as I'm glad that we'll be starting summer here, I do miss sitting around an open fire. Hope it was fun!
