Call me Sir Cliff

Normally, at this time of year, I'd be looking forward to my summer holidays. But not this year. Due to the changes in my employment status - and the consequent drop in earnings - we can't afford to go anywhere. On the up side I'm actually now paid to take time off.

So, I collected one week's holiday pay on Thursday as a prelude to 9 days away from work. Annette and I have turned the office around and we're now in a position where Annette works 3 days a week and I work 4. I normally take Wednesdays off but this week took Friday in stead. Add the August bank holiday to the end of my time off and I've got a really good break.

To start things off, last night, Jane and I went to Magic Spices* with Ed and Lyn. Magnificent! (We had a couple of pints in Stanley's Cask beforehand - and were served by Jan and the horniest barmaid I've ever scene).
