Everyone always talks about what they are going to do for a long weekend, go away, clean the garage, arrange for a large rubbish skip and clean up under their house but no one ever talks about the end of the weekend.
What did I achieve? I achieved three days of sleeping in. OK one I missed out on, however, I had family coming for dinner that day and needed to do a lot of preparation. OK not that much. Being that I try not to cook at too much I bought a pavlova, bought the makings of salads and then the meat – simple! My mother has us all over for dinner and she makes it a lot harder than it looks because she’s trying to cook it all and keep everyone happy. Why does she do that?
All in all a great day was had by all and I feel confident now that I could do it again and hopefully soon.
My weekend was filled with shopping, relaxing, washing, shopping, and even more shopping but I loved every minute of it. Why is it that so many people cram so much into a long weekend and when the first day back at work comes around they look like they could do with another long weekend?
My favourite day of the week is Monday! Why is that? Because it’s the one day that I am extremely happy and that “annoys the hell out of everyone else”!
Long weekends are there to be enjoyed yes, enjoyed with friends and even a little alcohol but why make it so that you don’t remember it, or feel exhausted after it or even feel guilty that you didn’t do what you wanted to do because you wanted to have more fun. Everything needs to be in moderation and until you realise it you really can’t appreciate or enjoy a long weekend let alone two days without work.
