Bank holiday hack

Last day of my Christmas break today, so seemed like a bank holiday hack was in order.

This is the first time I’ve made a conscious choice to have a break. When I was employed, I would cover for those with children. The last two years have been kind of enforced. So this year I decided to take a break. And I’m definitely feeling the benefit.

I’m feeling relaxed, refreshed and raring to go.

Today has been one of ‘those days’. You know the one. The one where you feel like you’ve moved stuff around but not really gotten anywhere. The one where you feel like you’ve spent most of it on the phone to various customer services people. And still not gotten anywhere.

Yes it was one of those days. Things I have learned today….

  • Some systems are just flawed. Once you’re in them, it’s ridiculously hard to get out. 🤬
  • Energy prices are insanely expensive. 😱
  • Airlines can cancel your flight and leave you stranded. But it’s OK cause you can get a refund. 🤦🏻‍♀️
  • Customer Services is a bloody hard job.

So after several fruitless conversations, I headed out for a hack to clear my head. It was a glorious day with lots of autumn sunshine.
