What's a weekend?

Have just looked at my diary and note that I have not been given a single day off between now and the supposed day of the election - not even my birthday.
In some ways this is nothing new because the trick over the past four years has been to try and have Sundays to myself (doesn't work as that's when people invite you to church and sometimes to appear on political programmes etc as well as any number of other worthy things) and to book one weekend a month as a complete weekend off (occasionally works!).

Although I have been knocking on doors over the past four years the pace has increased recently and this inevitably leads to an increase in the amount of letters to be written etc. It is all very positive stuff though.
