I’ve had it today, I really have. I’ve inexplicably enjoyed listneing to Beyoncé and The Wanted, drank more wine at lunch than is sensible and subsequently decided to organise lots of nights out in town that seemed like a good idea at the time but will probably never happen.
So here, in no particular order, is my list of top 10 reasons why Fridays are a joy:
- The knowledge that you don’t have to get up the next day. An obvious one, but there really is nothing better than a Saturday morning lie-in.
- The knowledge that you don’t have to go to work for two whole days. Along the same lines as the first point, but worth mentioning separately.
- Looking forward to whatever you have planned that weekend. Because even though you can look forward to something all week, on Friday it’s so close you can almost taste it.
- Nothing need be that serious. Even those deadlines at work.
- Having time to spend the time. Although I see my husband every day, it’s just somehow different on a Friday evening; no worries, no cares, no troubles, no bedtime.
- You can dance around and be silly. This one was my husband’s contribution.
- Friday lunch. I don’t know about you, but Friday lunch to me is always ‘treat lunch’. That means I can get a Prêt or go out for lunch with collegues and not feel guilty about a) spending too much and b) being late back to the office.
- After-work events. Goes hand in hand with the joyful knowledge that you don’t have to get up for work the next morning.
- Everyone buys into the hype. Everyone thinks Fridays are awesome, thus, Fridays are awesome. People just tend to be a little bit happier, more relaxed and carefree; because it’s Friday and that’s what happens on a Friday, right?
- Pressing the off switch. On anything and everything.
I’ll be somewhere in Wales this weekend, possibly in some kind of big tent, possibly near some big expanse of water in which there is the possibility of swimming. Thus I won’t be doing much crafting or much baking. Have a good weekend 🙂
