An Extra Long Weekend

Filed under: Home and Family — jenz @ 6:01 pm

teachers.jpgToday Billy had the day off school. All schools in New Zealand have been granted a teachers only day. Most Hawkes Bay schools took it today. The teachers are going to be discussing a new draft of the curriculum. Today he cleaned up his bedroom and listened to his radio. We also went grocey shopping this morning.

Billy wont be going to school tomorrow either. Tomorrow is hbsmall.gif day. We wont be going – its expensive for us and I dont think Daniel is up to it yet. If you are more interested check out this site. Muzz will be coming over thou 🙂

On Monday New Zealand celebrates Labour Day I found this interesting site and its links about the history of this day.

Relaxing Weekend!


Maybe you could tell me how many hours a day or week you or your hubby works.  Although this day celebrates the 8 hour day and the 40 hour week.  I think a lot of people actually work more than this these days.

  2. I know most schools had this but ours didnt, it’s next Tuesday instead, still it makes a nice change from having to get kids homework done and school lunches.

  3. Regarding the working hours; my husband is an engineer and typically leaves by 6:45am and rarely returns home before 7pm. He has a lot of responsibility, and he enjoys his work, but I think it’s taking a toll on him.

  4. We have labour day on the first Monday of Sept. My hubby is a tradesman and owns his own company. He works much closer to a 40 hour week than my brother in law who is a computer programer. He works insanely long hours. My twin had the same profession and quit because you can’t have both parents working those kind of hours! Now my twin, mom and I work online together from home. Long hours – but we set them!

    Thanks for your advice about my son 🙂
