That extra day ....

It’s 2020 and we ‘get’ an extra day this year.....

Yep, Saturday 29th February is technically a ‘Freebie’.

What to do with it - Take it off ? Get out and use it ? Explore ? Save it ? Learn or do something new ? Treat someone to a surprise ?

Whatever - let’s try to not work “it” ;)

  • Just another day to me might work or might not can't plan that far ahead lol

    • That’s a worry when you are in business lol

      • not for me, i thrive on unpredictability, the less routine the better lol ... what i do is weather dependent and have elderly parents and young children, i am out pretty much every sunday and bank holiday with my other business, again the results from that are largely impossible to forecast and with the possibility of change of venue or cancellation; maybe i will have picked up a new gardening job which urgently needs doing, who knows
