Your best bet to maximise some leave days will be through the Easter to Workers Day period. Put a Leave Application in for just 3 days (26, 28 and 29 April) and you’ll get an unbroken run of 11 days off. Do it now before all those anal retentives in Accounting figure it out as well!
That’s all folks. Now back to the salt mines with you all! Happy 2011!
