Having time off is tiring

Back to work today – but by the looks of it I have another four day week next week because they want to come and fit the new fireplace on Monday. It was quite a busy day yesterday, the chap turned up to look at where the fireplace will go and did things like set off a smoke bomb in the chimney. While he was there a chap from the council dropped in to talk to me about the flooding on the road outside where I live. Then I had to phone a chimney sweep (it would never have really crossed my mind that such a thing now exists) and he is coming over on Thursday to sweep the chimney in advance of the fire installation. Then I went to the supermarket and then it was lunch time. At about 5pm I fell asleep in the sofa for a bit. I should have people to run my life for me, I’m too delicate to have to achieve so much in a day. I am suited to being a lady of leisure, which means no work and no having to actually *do* anything (except nice things preferably involving eating).

Christmas is now a thing of the past for another 50 or so weeks (or about 30 weeks given when the adverts will start), but Easter is soon approaching, hence the Cadbury’s Creme Eggs already being in the shops. Cadbury’s are running an ad campaign to go with it, better known as Goo-ology, click on the link and see more ways than you can possibly imagine to release the goo in them. Somebody had waaaaaaay too much time on their hands when they designed that site, but it’s well worth a look. Unfortunately I am trying to be healthy at the moment so it is the closest I will get to a Cadbury’s Creme egg for the foreseeable future.

Not fair! Says your full-time working US blog stalker. :( And I cannot say how I dream of a fireplace someday.

titration - I do like days off, it cannot be denied. I think I would only consider you to be a stalker if you turned up on my doorstep unannounced to see my new fireplace. Beyond that I haven't got an concerns!

Karen - welcome. Those multi-packs of Creme Eggs at the supermarket keep calling my name, but I am trying very hard to resist.

TF - I have actually eaten all my Easter Eggs, although I think technically I did give one away. (I did just go and look in my cupboard and find some mini-eggs and mini creme eggs from last year though. Sorry)

LKSN - Quite! I keep wondering if he also might turn up with a small child who he'll send up the chimney. I guess that would make it cheaper. Forced child labour does have its advantages...
