Hard at work?

The British summer forecast has just been revised so there's no need to hold out for any barbecue weather anytime soon, and just in time for more bad weather, I've got a long weekend coming up as of this afternoon.

Perhaps I should spend it asleep, like the fella above did at 10am last Thursday morning? To be fair, sleeping on the job rather than when on holiday is to be preferred; at least you are still getting paid doing it...

Failing that, I might drive out to a wildlife reserve and do some twitching. Nothing beats sitting comfortably in a hide with your binoculars, a thermos full of coffee and a couple of sandwiches. Doesn't matter if it rains either!
