Because I'm smarter than I look!
Well, not really... because to be honest with you, it's taken me a long time to wake up and smell the coffee.
But at least I've finally done it!
And what have I 'done', you ask?
I've unplugged the bloody stinkin' phone for the duration of my holidays !!!
I pulled that sucker right out of the wall, and I told told friends and family that if they want to talk to me, they need to send me an email first, or to call me on my non-business mobile phone.
Because I hate phones!
Especially since my business number is actually my home number as well...
And because most of my clients have no manners at all, when it comes to ringing me at any time of the day or night.
They know that I'm on holidays right now, because their kids are now booked with someone else for the duration of my days off, so how confusing can it be?
But for some inexplicable reason, they feel the need to inform me that they won't be here the 3rd week in November, or they call because want to book placements for the Christmas holidays.
Or, in the case of one mother, she called me on Saturday, to ask if her little darling had eaten all of her lunch last week, because she seems to be off her food and seems to be "sickening", since last Tuesday!
Like I care?
Well, I do care, (probably too much at times) but I'm not going to get all worked up about it, especially during the next few weeks!
As far as I'm concerned, if they've got a concern about their child's health, they can damn well have their doctor call me.
After he sends me an email first!
Because this time off, is all about me!
It's MY time, to blog...
My time to read blogs...
My time to read a pile of books...
My time to pick my toenails...
Or to just scratch my arse...
Oh... and to have "Nana naps" to my hearts content!
But if you need me, just call me.
