I'm at work right now. It's almost lunch time. Why am I at work on my birthday? Well... the story goes something like this. I had originally booked today (29th) off work. And 1st May (Friday). Later it turns out I will be off Monday 4th May. So... instead of being off work today, back in tomorrow and off again on Friday and Monday, I thought I would be better working today and taking tomorrow off instead. Which means after I finish work today, I will be off work Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday AND Monday! FIVE DAYS of pleasure!! =D
Work has been quiet today, as it has been in the past week. The latest pay day for our client on the 16th of this month did not generate as many queries as previous months, and it's the new tax year as well, which is surprising, as usually people always query why their tax code has changed, or worse still, why it has not increased along with everyone elses. Anyway, none of that this year... so far! :)
Just moment ago, my manager Bob handed me a red envelope. It was a birthday card from the team. My wee team of six people including me. They put together some money and got me an Amazon.co.uk voucher. Cool! So nice of them. Usually when we chip in money for people's birthdays they would end up getting alcohol, but since I don't drink, or snack or anything of that sort, I guess they resorted to a voucher. Not any voucher, but Amazon! :D I will log online to check what's out there later today ;-)
So today, I will be going to the gym after work. People will have cell group or will watch Champions League football, so I have decided not to have a gathering tonight. Will go out tomorrow night instead. :)
Details to follow :D
