I put 2 holiday forms in today, one for May where a few of us are planning Germany onto Alps, The second for the July RTT.
May has been thrown out and July is under discussion.

I always thought employees could give notice and choose holiday periods? Not in a Garden Centre.

Best of luck with this one, Cats - the length of notice you are giving and the fact that it is away from school and bank hols makes it seem unfair to say the least!

I hope you can get it sorted as you will be a real asset to the team and I am sure you will enjoy the IoM!

Pete

p.s. can you not say it is research into new product ranges?

I'm a highly probable (+1), I have the leave arranged but no ferry yet,

Sadly I'll not be partaking of the Bunkhouse, as I'm bringing a mate who has blagged us FOC accomodation nearby (friends house with cooked brekkie each day!). He has several bikes (apparently they're investments - well that's what he tells his wife) and will likely be on a KTM 690SMC, so we're exploring vans or trailers as options, hence no ferry yet.

Plans also complicated by house sale (due to Exchange tomorrow) with a property developer with completion end June (but could be earlier), all very stressful and not yet finalised, but I'll sure be grateful for the week in IOM by then!! wink.gif

I hope the house sale goes through smoothly P.
