This week is my last working five days

Monday to Friday is over for me.

From next week, I will no longer be working Tuesdays.

Dropping a day is not a decision that I took lightly. It will obviously have financial implications for me, plus now I have signed that change of conditions form, there is no going back.

You will probably be aware, either from either knowing me, or reading this blog, that I have had a particularly tough time, when it comes to my health over the last two years.

Thankfully, I have come out of the other side and am now much improved. Despite this, I still find work tiring and by the end of a five day week, am often left shattered.

I have noticed that, following a single day off work for a Bank Holiday, I feel remarkably better and less tired, come Friday evening.

I am therefore hoping that this new working schedule will leave me feeling even better, both physically and mentally.

Lastly, a treat for stats fans…

  • I have worked since 1st September 2003.
  • This is 16 years, plus a little bit more.
  • I have deduced days in account of weekends, Bank Holidays and annual leave and can reveal that I have worked appropriately 3,500 days *. This does not include deductions for sickness.

Pretty sure this justifies me in dropping one day a week…

26,250 hours, 1,575,000 minutes, 94,500,000 seconds.

… tomorrow I will tell you how many weeks I spent on the work toilet, over those last 16 years.

Considering that I have never worked for Sports Direct, you can be sure that the grand total will be a tad more than five minutes.

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
