It's been a mad few weeks at work. For those of you who don't know, I'm a Payroll Manager - that means I pay peoples' wages - and April is a traditionally mad month for people like me because here in the UK it's the end of the tax year. However, I did have a couple of days' annual leave at the beginning of the month, also it's Easter, that means we have two public holidays, and when I get back to work on Tuesday, someone with a laughably appalling sense of timing has arranged an all-day meeting. So in short, adding into the mix the fact that this is my first tax year end at this job 'flying solo', I have twice as much work to do this month, but I have six days less to do it in. Yes, I know I could have 'not' had annual leave but I am never NOT going to try to have my birthday off work. It's not my fault my parents timed my birth in the same week as tax year end! I suspect that wasn't foremost in their thoughts when ... never mind!
Anyhoo, the upshot of all that is that it's been a month of 8, 9, even 10 hour days, and I'm knackered! Therefore, my plan for Easter is ... not to have a plan.
It's four days of sleeping in, and doing stuff that relaxes me. So, that means arting!
This is a new picture I've started for Asylum 18. I've been giving some thought to who to do next, and I decided on those lovely Hillywood Girls, as a thank you for their fantastic parody of our show.
So my first pic is Hillywood Castiel. This is my progress so far:
Bazza was outside servicing a bike for one of his friends while I was in the hiuse, and busy drawing, so I played two of my favourite movies; The Dish and Shaun of the Dead. In between times, I did managed tio squeeze in last night's episode of Supernatural too.
Later on, Mr D and I walked down to Randalls, the lovely coffee shop/wine bar in the village centre and ...
Well, now you can see why we love it so much!
So all in all, relaxing day ... mission accomplished!
