To work overtime is to die a little.
Even I have moments of weakness and one of those moment occured on Tuesday afternoon when I promised to work overtime yesterday evening. I think they were as surprised as I was when I said I could work, that almost never happens 🙂 🙂 I really didn’t want to but what harm can a few hours do and I wanted a couple of hours in my time bank for those days when the holiday comes on a Thursday and I really don’t want to work on the Friday after 🙂
Unfortunately three unexperienced people worked together with me and they did try their best. It sounds easy, to hang material on the line ( a chain that runs around the entire department, through the painting box and ovens and washing machines) and pick them off after the oven and check on a list that we send back as many things as we hung up. BUT and it’s a big but, it is anything than easy if You only have done it once or twice before. The things must hang in the right way so I can paint it properly and those lists are almost impossible to understand if one doesn’t know what the things are called 🙂 🙂 🙂
In the middle of it all I had to go to the paintbox to clean it and change color so I had to leave them to do as good as they could 🙂 🙂 🙂 They really tried but nothing much happened 🙂 🙂 🙂 and then suddenly my voice became deeper and fever hit 🙂 🙂 🙂 I don’t think I’ll ever work overtime again 🙂 🙂 🙂 But I have to admit that I slept like a dead man all night and the fever was gone this morning 🙂
So now I’ll enjoy a four day weekend 🙂 I don’t know how things work in other parts of the world but here we get fully paid on holidays when they happen on a work day. That’s why I love holidays that are fixed ion special days like the ones at Easter 🙂
I fed the deers as soon as we had come home from our walk and today something odd happened, six deers started fighting in my garden!!! Rune and Longhorn tried to chase away any doe that came close to the food, that is until Longhorn tried to chase away Doris. You should have seen those two bucks! The fight between them ended when one-eyed Rune chased away Longhorn. But the hinds weren’t much better, they fought each other as well. Everything calmed down when Rune finally got Longhorn out of the garden, he chased him way out on the field outside.
The fire is burning in my stove and I think I’ll make lots of cocoa today, I have bought way to much milk 🙂 I’ve also bought way to much sour milk and yoghurt 🙂 so I might mix that with some frozen berries because I refuse to throw away food just because I’ve bought too much of it and it then goes bad.
Have a great day!
