Like everyone I love the weekend. No work. Just do what you want to do. Well, a few chores as well maybe. When I was a wee anklebiter, Saturdays were always the bees knees. Totally exciting and far better than boring old Sundays. Saturday is when I went out with my young pals down the local park on our bikes or, later on, up town to buy comics and drink vimto and ice cream. Sundays meant Eleven O' Clock Mass, family visits and the inevitable early to bed for the dreaded start of another week at school!
Nowadays, all growed up, I love both days equally. Off work for two whole days and as I'm not a great shopper they both feel like one big relaxing time. Now Spring has sprung, the Moonbasers love just pottering around in the house or garden, with the occassional outburst of energy necessary to sustain life such as get food, cook, check on other family members, write, read, mess with toys and blog.
Oddly enough Friday nights have become more and more exciting over the years [maybe they always were, I forget!]. The combination of finishing work with no work in the morning and the prospect of a lie-in is a heady one and somehow different to the rest of the weekend.
But some folk have a weekend at other times of the week due to work rotas and even have days off when the rest of us are labouring. So what's your favourite day?
