I'm personally under the opinion that I'm paid to work 365.25 days a year.
Also, with the CSCs shift patterns, it could actually work out as being an extra day off in a year.

No weekends? No holidays? Don't be such a workaholic, you're making me feel guilty!  Grin

Sorry Smiley
I mean 365.25 days minus holidays and weekends.
I just tried having this chat with one of our HR girls and she's now rather confused.
A friend of mine is 7 today Smiley

I shouldn't be working as I am rota'd off. One of the perks of working in the CSC  Smiley
But  today is all about taking a leap (not literally of course!) - Do something today you have always wanted to do but were scared to, be bolder today, take a risk, ask someone out, go for that promotion, go on that holiday, wear those shoes etc.
Think of this as an extra day in the year, so carpe diem (seize the day)!

365 days 5 hours 48 minutes 45 1/2 seconds. How sad is that.
People talk about a free day at work. Many of us salaried people put in a lot more than 1 free day a year, leap year or not  Angry

PS A day is 23 hours 56 minutes and 4 seconds...off the top of my head. Sad
I need a holiday....

An extra day this year? I'd forgotten that. Yet another day that my customers pass by my phone number and call someone else. Grin
Still i got the dogs walked this morning before the rain came.

Re: 29th February, should you be working today ??

Well my leap is to go on a detox plan where I don't drink alcohol or have takeaways. I am taking this one month at a time and it was the extra day which made me say "let's make a go of this". So hopefully in one month's time I will be healthier and still tee-total. And yes I still feel a bit ill from last night's final session  Sad

Never. Going. To. Happen.
Although having said that, the speed that you drink at, you may as well quit Tongue
