Here in Ontario the provincial government decided to add an extra public holiday between Christmas and Easter and call it Family Day. Today, February 16th is it. However there is a lot of confusion about this holiday and half the people of this province have the day off, however a lot of people don't.
Ontarians who are covered by the ESA holiday provisions are entitled to a minimum of nine public holidays. If your employer provides 10 or more paid holidays, you may not automatically be entitled to Family Day. So where dh is contracted out too, they don't get the day off, so dh is working. Dd boyfriend works for the Federal Government, and he also doesn't get the day off.
So for those of you who are celebrating Family Day, I hope you enjoy the day off with your family......
Also it's my mother's birthday today and my step-father was taking her for a drive around the Lake District and afternoon tea at the Sharrow Bay Hotel. She went a couple of years ago and just loved it, so I know she'll have a good time.
Happy Birthday Mam!!!
Moving Update: Well on Sunday we had one viewing of the house, so that was positive, although having another four or five viewing's would have been even better!!!
