If only I'd known
February 9 - I'm on holiday next week. It's the first week off we've had for six months and I intended to enjoy it. Holidays are pretty much determined by my wife's availability these days (that's government cuts for you - not enough staff to allow much flexibility now at he place). She's been given half term off this time - so we have to take it.
The only trouble is half term is mighty early this year - or at least a week earlier than I expected. It's never been Valentine's week. It's always been the week after. So we are going away. But I have committed myself to two meetings I can't really get out of. So I'm going to have to come back for them.
Yes, that's my fault. And I'm annoyed with myself. And my wife is annoyed with me. So it's all going just fine so far.
If only I'd known.
I wonder how many times I've said that?
