I rushed the paperwork on my application for my leave this morning. But on hindsight I think I may have made some mistakes with the paperwork - I might have included my weekends as Annual Leave. This means I submitted an application for 8 days of Annual Leave, instead of 6 days of Annual Leave + 2 weekends off. What's the difference? Two days of Annual Leave. Remember: we had to fight for the right to utilize our leave. It's hard-earned and not to be squandered.
I have little faith in my HR, so I better verify things with Mr Y tomorrow.
That said and done - I have just bought the ticket to London. My departing flight will be on the 26th of February, which will allow me to reach London in the afternoon. A good friend of mine is staying in London, and I should be staying with her - if nothing goes wrong.
I haven't planned anything yet. I have about 24 days to research and come up with something. I've been asking friends for recommendations - and please, if you have any suggestions on fun stuff to do in London, please do drop me a message.
Will plan a few days to hunt down the second-hand bookstores. I also want to sit at a nice cafe nursing that one cup of coffee for 5 hours, book in hand. I have to visit the museums, or catch a show somewhere (no sure where, but I'm sure I can find something.)
I so need a break.
