Day #23 in a row without time off. Almost a month's worth of holidays worked up. September is going to be real relaxing.

But are you enjoying the work? Is it fulfilling? Have you reached the apex of Maslow's heirarchy of needs?

If so then physical exhaustion is nothing to worry about... or is it?

Yes, yes and one wikipedia search later I can say "probably, depends on the day". However, time/slacking off features quite highly on Glen's hierarchy of needs so I'm failing a little there.

The Heirarchy of Needs is a fantastic way of analyzing your life. Everything is about pyramids, everything!

I looked this up *AGES* ago when Deecal were taking the mickey, keeping me out in that sodding data warehouse for millions of hours per day and the gist of the legality of overtime is that once you're an adult.. above 16 or 18 or whenever it happens.. you have to be working more than an average of sixty hours per week over a three (I think) month period) before it becomes a problem legally.

So, yes, perfectly, at least unless it keeps going for another two months :)

Actually since you are now management (I believe?), it is now technically your own damned fault. And you'll find that that's the view the law takes to it. Learn to manage your time and other resources better. Delegate the tasks. Remember it's not your job to do the task, it's your job to see that the task is done...

Yep, you're entitled to:

Daily Rest Period - 11 consecutive hours daily rest per 24 hour period.
Weekly Rest Period - One period of 24 hours rest per week preceded by a daily rest period (11 consecutive hours).

I apologise but...

HA! Bloody civil servants think if someone has to do actualy work for more than 5 hours a week without a 3 hour tea-break that we should call in the shop steward. Welcome to the world of the private sector. You know, the people who pay for you to live the life of bleeedin' Reilly.

Y'know - I could have replied to this yesterday afternoon - but that would have left me nothing to do in work all morning...
