This thread has usefully reminded me to put the bin out, in case the bin men come early again.

Today is Not Thursday. Instead, it's Bank Moliday Honday. But why? It's annoying when the bakery is shut but I've got to work anyway!

(just to be clear, the annoying this is the bakery being shut, depriving me of baked treats, not me working)

It's not a bank holiday Monday it's a Glasgow Holiday, the east coast is open*, the west coast is shut.

* Subject to current closures

Tuesday is bin day here, Bank Holiday Monday has me scrabbling around in the "drawer of keys" to find the leaflet that explains when it's not Tuesday

Since they were outsourced our binmen have to work Bank Holidays as per normal days.

Ours seem to have been doing that since they were insourced. That is, since the council took the contract back from the commercial outfit that cocked it up before. Although you can never be entirely sure; they'll collect on Good Friday or Friday VE Day (our day is Friday) but then delay till the following Monday after a week beginning with a BHM.

In all seriousness I have no idea when it's a bank holiday or local holiday here.
The list at work covers the 3 council areas but that's just Dundee, Perth and (I think) Arbroath holidays.

We should probably have moved on from the burgh holidays at regionalisation in 1974, it was bad enough having to make a hasty retreat to the dinner hall at school when discovering it was a St Andrews holiday, but the madness of having the whole country off on the same days mah too far...

I was on the phone to my The Boss today to discuss my impending unfurloughment.  He apologised that he didn't call yesterday as planned but "got his days muddled up."  I pointed out that I, as the furloughed one, was living a structureless life and he, still working, should really know which day it is.

I have the opposite problem. I might, or might not have started my new job yet, and my new boss (or not) is on furlough. I've not spoken to him, but with a thirteen month old baby I doubt he knows what day it is. Still, I put a tick in the box for the old boss for end of year review.

I keep thinking it's Saturday and then realizing it's Friday. That's be nice if I were still working because then I'd still have a complete weekend ahead but being retired, who cares?

Come to that, Monday's a holiday here, being Pentecost.  Not that I'm religious or anything but Catholic countries are great for having bunched-up holidays, and May is the best month of the lot.

Right im confused.

Do I need to
a) head out on the bike
Or b) phone the boss and apologise for sleeping in and not being at work?

Either way I think I'm going to go and see if St Andrews is carnage.
