Yes about time a royal occassion benefited the Brits! In Australia they always get a day off for the queens birthday even though they dont like the royal family.
I'm off to Poland tomorrow for a short break with the wife but back to work on Tuesday unfortunately.
Enjoy your Easter break.
Btw, Did you make use of the Leia bespin and YPS Snowtrooper cape pics?

I wish I could say the same!
I'm a farmer and it's one of the most busy times of year. What with spraying, planting potatoes and bagging potatoes up for chip shops. These two weekends really have put me under alot of pressure.trying to get the work done while the weather is good and trying to keep my wife and 3 children happy is difficult!
Anyway rant over!

Here in Aus we don't have a day off for the royal wedding (tho it might be a good idea). We do however, have a 5 day holiday for Easter this year as our ANZAC holiday (which always on April 25th) falls on Easter Monday this year, so we get Tuesday off too. Noice!!
