Blog a Day 237of365: A day off

Today is my day off. Days off from the day job are usually not a big deal for me as frequently I only work 3-4 days a week at most. This week though, what with the ‘hell’ week, it feels slightly more important.

I did have a surprise day off Monday of course but it felt less exciting. Mostly because I spent most of it on edge worried that work would ask me to come in.

Today though, today will definitely be a day off. My boss knows that Wednesdays are important to my sanity.

So what will today consist of?

Admittedly the morning consisted of a different form of work: Msc based work. Never mind though.

I’m also waiting for my shiny new iPhone 4 to arrive which according to DHL is on a van somewhere in the area. Hopefully it won’t suffer the same fate as Ian Dransfield’s new TV.

Also waiting for the Virgin Media engineer to come round and hopefully fix the V+ box which has been buggered since the weekend. Luckily there wasn’t too much on TV to miss anyhow (excluding Dexter) but it’s still a nuisance to say the least.

Then once all that’s out of the way, I’m off to the cinema. To see The A Team. Again. Yeah I know. My Mum wants to see it again though plus I want to go to the cinema today and there’s not much else I fancy seeing. Scott Pilgrim is out today but I’d rather wait till there’s less of a rush and it’s quieter.

After that, I’m buying us an Indian takeaway. It’s a big treat as it’s quite expensive but it seems deserved during a week like this! Might even finally get a chance to watch Shutter Island after owning it for a month or so.
