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
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…
Time to call the girls, because it’s time for bank holiday cocktails – with an extra day to recover, it seems rude not to.
4. Your lie in doesn’t go as planned
WHY DOES OUR BODY CLOCK WAKE US UP AT 7AM?
5. More cocktails
Because, bank holiday.
6. So much shopping
This bank holiday happens to fall over payday (yay!) so we think treating ourselves to some retail therapy is a must.
7. It’s still raining
Okay, so the BBQ is off.
8. Forgetting to turn your Monday alarm off
At this rate, we won’t have a lie in this entire weekend.
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
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
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
