I took the day off today and in a single morning I managed to complete all the errands which I had on my to-do list since last week. They're all house/construction related. I started out at 10am and zipped up and down town twice asking for quotations from a security/alarm system company, two airconditioning dealers, and the window/double glazing. Surprisingly all that took just an hour and a half so I also passed by architect/consultant's office to pick up some extra copies of window and door designs and schedules. I was still left with enough time to choose whether to go visit the construction site or shop at Qurum till lunch. I chose shopping and I was back at home by 1.15pm.
Having worked my entire ten-year career since graduation in the banking sector where we only get Friday off, I was surprised how much a difference a two day weekend can do. As far as I know plans for a two day weekend in the banking sector are dead and burried. It ain't gonna happen any time soon, and that just sucks.
