Blue Monday. Weekends are just not long enough anymore, and they do seem shorter with Geoffrey having Fridays off. I remember getting off work in the city early on Fridays in summer, it was only a couple of hours, but it certainly made the weekend seem grander, and the company more generous. Now, Iíve got fewer vacation and sick days than Iíve ever had, no personal days, only seven holidays a year and they require me at my desk more hours a day than anywhere else than Iíve ever worked. No wonder the weekend feels shorter Ė by comparison it is!
