Today is Saturday and as far as I’m aware it’s just Saturday, there’s no prefix like Bank Holiday Saturday or Christmas Weekend Saturday, actually I’m surprised there’s not a name for the day after Boxing Day, maybe there is but I just call it the lull.
It’s the lull between Christmas and New Year, the tree has a few lone presents left, the fridge groans with leftovers, the bins and recycling boxes are overflowing and the empties corner looks like it was a good evening. We’ve spent time together as a family, we’ve seen friends and family and now we’re planning what to do next that doesn’t involve a long car journey or anything that remotely could light a blue touch paper.
Whilst everyone has a wind down day I’ve decided to rearrange furniture involving 3 upstairs rooms. Is it seasonal? Is it fun for all the family? Is it a good use of a weekend? Well in answer to all of those questions then I suppose it’s a yes! It’s a pre-spring clean, it’s like changing rooms without the bed moving and hell yes it’s not as if we’ve got anything planned!
Apart from making turkey curry! What about you?
