Well, at long bloody last it's Easter!  I get four days off, and so does Mr D.

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!

Least you must be popular, providing people with salaries! Sounds hectic, glad you both get some time off together. Both H and I have Sunday and Monday off so I am really looking forward to that. :)

And definitely, that food looks amazing!

In my line of work, I'm popular one day a month at least!
A four-day weekend is a real treat, hope you're enjoying yours as much as I'm enjoying mine :)

After we have that antipasti board, we have to practically roll ourselves back home!
Looking forward to seeing my pressie - don't bust a gut to get it in the post. I'm happy to wait until we get together for June's birthday if it's easier xx

I'd have had to sleep under the table ;)
It's cool, I'm already miffed it's late I don't want you waiting that long. It;s nothing huge so it should take long to get to you but I had to construct it out of two separate things. Trust me to be awkward!

Oh the joys of payroll year end, you really have my sympathies, at least you have a couple of days of to relax and do whatever you like. I like your latest drawing it's coming along nicely and just reminds me of how close A18 is. And looking at that lovely spread of cheese and bisicuits no wonder you love that wine bar.

Not long at all to A18 now, starting to get excited!
