    We (me and assistant) love summer at our place. Its possibly the best time in the year. A whole 5.5 weeks, not had 6 full weeks for a while but just the whole place is ours and the site teams.

    We get to leave things around and know that no one will touch things.

    Start of summer we rush to get things done then fine we could have taken our time.

    6 weeks seems a long time at the end of july but looking back at the beginning od Sept you think where has time gone.

    You know that once you have neated something up it will stay neat for the duration of the holiday.

    Get to do some real physical work like cabling, drilling, get to use our power tools etc.

    When its results day we hide ourselves away.

    The banter with our contractors as they are on our level and not looking down their noses at us.

    Love love love the summer break and the random bbqs that we have.

    That we do.. Although if I started picking locks instead of just using my keys, I think a few questions would be asked..

    Not that keys matter.. When teachers aren't leaving their doors unlocked when the room is unoccupied, they're actively giving their keys to students to run errands/go to the toilet. The phrase "Losing battle" springs to mind.

    I love summer - early starts, less interruptions, a chance to catch up a little and prepare (ever hopeful) ..... do you think asking for pay as well is to much currently paid 42 wpy - 16 days during hol/over my 830-430 hours already worked 4 days plus numerous add hours ......., Don't work then I hear you cry ..... but then unprepared I will launch myself into the next academic year ......

    The caretaker let me pick the lock to a drawer that the receptionist had locked MY keys in last month! Picking a lock to get to my keys was rather surreal.
    We have a master key in my room otherwise known as the sledgehammer :-)

    We got locked upstairs after the site staff locked all doors to stair wells as a laugh. They forgot about the lift though.

    Been working through the weekend with arrangement that we'd text the nearest caretaker when leaving - we had a temporary key to one outside door to lockup, then they came back later to set alarm.

    Texted him 3.30 yesterday saying 'just leaving'.

    Got a call at 5pm - 'when did you send that text? You haven't just left have you cos I locked up and set the alarm an hour ago!'

    I'm glad he obviously checked we were not in our office and our cars had gone before locking up!

    Sadly we have no shops immediately near us. At least not within a reasonable walking distance. I'm building a summer survival cache when I go grocery shopping tonight...

    Yep feel the same, just want to get started on the bigger projects so they can be finished in time for September. (As well as making it easier to relax on holiday knowing I got most of the work done)
