Sherlock Sheet standing

Surprise holiday

As usual it's been really quiet at work this week so I wasn't surprised when my boss asked if I'd like to take tomorrow off, provided I had enough leave available. Hell to the yeah - and I have over 200 hours leave so it's not a drama at all. I'm hoping that today's rain will continue for a bit longer so I have an excuse to curl up on the couch with my kindle and finish reading indybaggins terrific Sherlock AU fic Cake and Other Sins which I'm a quarter of the way through. So far it's fantastic, please check it out. Don't let the AU label put you off; her characters are so well-drawn it doesn't feel AU at all.
Just check the tags, though; there are no warnings on the fic but the tags are a bit of a heads-up.

Another thing I'll do tomorrow is try and arrange catering for my soon to be daughter in law's hen's night. Talk about last minute - it's exactly one month away and I was asked today to take care of it. And not only arrange, but pay for. To be honest I'm a bit annoyed at the short notice, from her matron of honour who is arranging everything else. I wish she'd asked back when she first made her plans, so I had more time to budget for it.

Also helping my sister plan for her husband's surprise 60th on Saturday; she's keeping the food at my place so he doesn't twig, and has given me a shopping list of things yet to be bought so I might do some of that tomorrow as well. It's useful, having a day off in the middle of the week.
