Apart from possibly a short notice weekend locally think Christmas will be our next week away,pretty sure of that week as they have a shutdown over Christmas.
god how do you cope ? one week working then next only one day that would drive me mad
We put up with it because we dont want to work 5 days,most of the time we can get 3 or 4 with both of us there you can see the good and bad with it.
Its sounds a bit like being self employed. Either nobody is ready or they are all ready at once!!! This week every bodies ready.
Tried the self employed,my first wife and i had a wedding and portrait photography business in the seventies,sat there many times unable to pay bills and at the same time had orders waiting to be collected and paid for worth 5 or 6 times what the bills where,we stuck with it for nearly 10 years and most of the time it was great.
