Remember, yesterday, I was fuming about my (lack of) hours, at work?
I’ve got them sorted. After having a quiet word with my boss.

They’d be WELCOME … !

Have a good day: and don’t spend too much!
* Very good point, Debbi! Actually? My stomach was playing up, last night: so I spent it in bed, with an online radio station. And a copy of Le Guin’s The Tombs of Atuan. The writing is just outright gorgeous … !
