Start of a long weekend

Sometimes I take a day off, just for me. A me day. I love those. Generally speaking they are devoted to sewing and just being me in many ways. Today I have taken a day off too, but this time with SO. The reason being down to earth. We needed to go to the hair dresser and really there is no weekend anywhere near today where both the hairdresser and us can be in the same place at the same time.

This week we have a long weekend. Thursday is Ascension day and both our employers are giving the employees Friday off as well – lucky us. So by adding the Wednesday we have a five day weekend. Give the complete insanity of last few weeks at work, which will get worse over the next six weeks for me that feels like a wonderful little oasis of tranquillity in the middle of it all.

Hairdresser out of the way we are simply veging out. SO has cleared some of the stuff out of our garage box and I have started the laundry, but really the most exciting thing of today (apart from looking well groomed) was that wonderful salmon sandwich we made ourselves. Still it is a nice relaxing extra us day.
