    Well, they are for me, because on Fridays, I've got to be up at 4am to let the girls have a bit of a comfort break, before I head out to site. Every Friday for the last year, I've had to check on a structure and submit a report detailing any changes, and give updates, now the darker nights are drawing in, and for H&S reasons, it's done during hours of darkness, as the earlier I get to site the more likely it is I can get a proper look at this particular structure, otherwise it might be too busy and unsafe for me to get up close. Added to that, I start a week on call from noon tomorrow, I can't even console myself with a glass of wine later on tomorrow evening, and I'm working again this weekend, I've had one weekend off since about June!

    Right, must get a hot drink and then get myself off to bed, as I'll be getting up shortly!! Bah humbug :D

    What's 4am?

    SL, you are a stronger woman than me! That sounds unbearable... I'm sure you could squeeze a wee drink in somewhere, you know, for comfort :)

    Unfortunately not, the limits for people working on the railways is twice as strict as the drink driving limit, it's just not worth risking. I'm just keeping my fingers crossed I don't get any call outs, I don't need them, I'm now working tomorrow and Sunday so won't have one day off this week. At least I get paid for it!

    I am, but I also appreciate my job, it's not easy, I'll be doing a few hours tomorrow but they will be fairly easy, Sunday, I'll be up in a hoist bucket on a fairly big bridge, which I'm not looking forward to, and Monday I'm back out again running up and down ladders. But, it's a very good job, good pay, and good over time, so I can't complain, well, not too much.

    Thankfully, I think my Friday morning 4am starts are numbered, it looks like the second repair they've done has done the trick, so I'm hoping I can have a lie in until 6am soon :D

    Oh well :) At least you like it and it pays well... More money to spend on the girls :D

    I get up at 6am most morning to take the dogs out, so I know your pain there... No rest for the wicked :D
