Yay for days off.  
Cats apparently have a poor grasp of the concept of public holidays. Ziggy decided that it was Thursday, it was 5.30, and I should be up - he turned on my touch-lamp, knocked my mobile phone off the side table then chewed three of the keys off it (not my everyday one, luckily, but my old spare which I use for the alarm function), knocked over some framed photos, and bit my feet through the sheet whenever I moved. I'd have turfed him out of my room except that I couldn't stand listening to him cry and scratch at the door.

Still managed to go back to sleep, though, once I'd popped my phone in a drawer and turned the lamp off. When I again woke it was a glorious sunny day! Spent the morning catching up on a few things, setting up my new modem (old one died last Saturday and I've been using a mobile broadband stick since then; it's lovely to have my hig-speed access back again tonight!) and then spent three hours repainting my wrought iron outdoor setting. It will need a second coat on the weekend but already it looks a lot better than it did.

Back to work tomorrow, just for one day. Seems a bit ridiculous, really.

I know, right? I forgot to put the bin out last night, and almost forgot to set my alarm t his morning.

That would have given you a fright! I'm glad it was a false alarm (*g*).

Oh my! That Ziggy is turning out to be a bit of a handful. *g* Does he still wake you early on the weekends?

A day off through the week does put you out a bit, although according to holiday bookings down here, some were making a very long weekend out of it, like taking Friday as a sickie. But you wouldn't do that! :P

That Ziggy is what is officially known as a Bad Cat. *g* Yes, he still wakes me on the weekends, but not quite as enthusiastically as he did yesterday.

Fully one-third of our lenders had today off, having applied for the day as a holiday; I had one stupid cow in my office complaining that she'd had to go to three branches before she found one that had a lender today. I asked her if she'd considered calling, first, as we do tend to work to appointments - she didn't think she'd have to, and said "but here I am now, and here you are!" To which I replied "and I'm at lunch right now! But here I am helping you instead!" Today, I gave no fucks. *g* Frankly I'm over rude, selfish people.
