It’s been a good weekend – mostly, I’ve done nothing (we saw Phone Booth – popcorn films do not count as Doing Anything), with friends. This is pretty much my definition of a good weekend. To fully meet the definition, it requires drinking and clubbing and cultural events and doing no work at all (or, alternatively, it means no human contact and working all weekend, depending on my mood). In the absence of that, I’ll settle for doing only three or four hours work in four days, and otherwise just relaxing. Currently drinking a rather nice Fruit Drink – fresh orange juice, blended with strawberries and raspberries. Well, mostly fruit. There may have been some tequilla involved.
Aside from some time off sick, though, I haven’t had a break since January, because of the usual “no holiday in your trial period” clause in my contract, so I was very much in need of that. But the trial period is up, and I’ve a week (sort of) off at the end of May, and a couple of bank holidays, so that’s not too bad. Now, though, I think I’ll stick a DVD on, and call the weekend done.
