In two weeks' time?

Daniel's dad normally asks to have him over a BH weekend, but now I'm working full-time, it's going to be the only time I have any energy to take Daniel out on a Sunday. So if he does, I'm going to say he can have him Sat as normal and he can pick him up and take him out on Monday if he wants, but I want to take Daniel to Chester Zoo on the Sunday. We won't get to go at Whit as we're going away that week, and I want to make sure our membership passes earn their money!

Then on the Monday I will probably do something just for me. I don't know what yet.

Im not sure yet what we are doing, but whatever it will be it will be low key. What with our trip to Paris this week and Reeses birthday party next weekend, money will be tight. We may go for a spin in the car to the seaside or something along those lines.

Ahh ok. They never used to do that though, did they? Because our bins get taken on a Monday and at one time when it was a bank holiday they used to try to squeeze them in elsewhere in the week but you had to be prepared that they might not come for a week. That's a bit unfair on the dustbin men really - does he get paid double for it though?

That sucks Sarah, the bin men here in Ireland don't work bank holidays, well the companies we have had collect ours never did. I'm with Sharron, they should at least do them on a rota basis.
