I've also booked off 17-19 October (after my birthday) as annual leave. I decided to be at work for my birthday just for the fun of it, and besides which I think Ama wants to decorate my desk... God knows when she'll manage it, as I never leave my chair. ;)
Paul and I are also meant to be going to the Safari Park with mym and David the weekend before my b'day because they have a voucher to use up... I haven't been there in years.
I shall use my leave to update my Facebook Virtual Bookcase. :)
