12 Things That Inevitably Happen On A Bank Holiday Weekend

Oh hey bank holiday! Our favourite type of weekend, we can’t wait for our three days off at the end of August – we think we deserve a bit of R&R. Whether you’re spending the bank holiday with family, friends or solo, we’re fairly confident of how the weekend will go – as every bank holiday is inevitably the same…

 

1. Friday = FriYAY

1

Literally nobody does any work on the Friday – we’re all just waiting for the 5.30pm car-park dash. Someone probably brings in donuts, and the office Spotify is turned dangerously loud: we’ve got that Friday feeling!

 

2. It rains

Is it the law that it has to rain on a bank holiday? Plans for picnics and brisk outdoor walks go out the window, soon to be replaced by…

3. Cocktails

9. Monday euphoria

Is there anything more delicious than not being at work on a Monday? We don’t think so.

10. The Monday crash

10

It gets to 5pm, and we suddenly realise we’ve not done any laundry or bought any food for the upcoming week. Cue the Monday crash…

11. Four day week fabulousness

11

If we became Prime Minister, we’d make it compulsory for every week to be four days long. Who’s voting for us?

12. It stops raining

Seriously?
