Happy Easter everyone! I'm at work too, Swifty, and from the sunshine, the number of tourists we had in yesterday and the sound of bikes heading down the main road to Scarborough, it's going to be another busy one.

I've had a very much welcomed quiet day catseye .. thank Christ .. I was even able to catch up on paper work .. I didn't even get any 'Indiana Jones's' tonight (the arseholes that look up your closing time then turn up 5 minutes before your closing time with a list because, like, your still open and, like, the customer is always right!" ....

Apparently easter sunday is the only day of the year supermarkets, garden centres, DIY stores etc are not allowed to open
I can't say I'd ever noticed before.

I'd call that a well deserved rest after the last 12 months the staff have just had .. and the eggs will all be marked down tomorrow anyway so everybody wins ..

It was the deal to allow Sunday trading in England back in the day. It is the one Sunday you can’t open if you’re a supermarket , garden centre etc. It’s to allow all the staff to go to church.

Our supermarket was open. It's only shops over a certain size that shut, and that is at the discretion of the manager.
