I'm a bloody genius.
I took Friday 5 December and Monday 8 December off work agggges ago. I had plans to travel to Taranaki but my plans fell through, but I didn't cancel my leave.
And now look! I have a long weekend off work mere weeks away from the Christmas break. And without even realising I really *need* some time off work so close to the Christmas break. And I am looking at my long weekend which starts, well, *now* as golden.
Just call me Albert, because this has been a *genius* move.
