Today I signed myself away signed my extended contract to another year of slavery work in the mines at the job center. So, cheers for one more year of not having to deal with the whole hassle of unemployment, not to mention be able to earn - and buy - stuff. \o/

Predictably, the big summer holiday I had planned next year going Down Under probably won't work out as my travelling partner in crime will most likely not get more than one week off at a time. *kicks*

Thanks. :)

I guess Rome will have to do next year (and I have to stop adding that up). *g* Or, maybe, another short trip to a not-so-far-away destination.

Like a village near Bonn ; )

Yay for the job! I had my first day of "real" work today, after 4 weeks of "training" (lamest training and lamest job ever, hence the use of ""), so I'm glad to see that some people are lucky enough to keep their job. Even if it's hard! :P

Pity for Australia, though. Couldn't you try to go another time with your friend, as it's Winter down there in the summer anyway, or do you have no choice but to take holidays at that time?

Of course next year will be hell on wheels on the job. They already told us that we will HAVE to meet our alloted quota of work done or else.

Oh no, I'm relatively free over the year on when I will take my vacation. But my friend already has been told that she won't be allowed to take off more than a week at once all year, meaning she has her six weeks vacation time and she will be allowed to take maybe three or four of them over the whole year and then only one week here and one week there. The rest of it will have a "vacation restriction". Yup, her workplace is crazy.

And of course one week would be silly for something like Australia.

Wow, your friend's workplace sucks!! You can't go anywhere with one week, or somewhere really close.

Congrats! And if your trip isn't working i'm sure you'll find another place to come and have a great time.

Thank you. Maybe something not quite so far away. Would have been nice, though.
