Bank Holiday Blues


The end of a weekend is usually quite traumatic, especially when you know you have a busy week ahead of you. It’s even worse when it’s been extended by a bank holiday (or public holiday for the South Africans reading this). It’s like knowing you have a double maths Monday and you haven’t done your geometry homework…even though you don’t think you had any. When that Sunday night TV show comes on and you are painfully aware that there are only a few more blissful hours left before the return to glaring normality. And you can’t actually enjoy those last few hours because the dread has descended and it really is all over. Like the last episode of Girls. Or the Brexit vote. Or when Trump became president and there was nothing you could do about it. So you binge watch bad TV until it’s ridiculously late and you realise you aren’t prepared for the Monday rush so you end up packing your gym bag, making lunch and a breakfast smoothie until it’s so late that you wake up on Monday morning like the walking dead and forget half of what you prepped the night before, ending up nursing multiple cups of coffee, breakfast cream cheese bagels and late afternoon junk food. So then your week is ruined and what’s the point of going to gym, you’ll try again the next day or the next week only to repeat the vicious cycle..? No? Only me then? Well if you are a little this way inclined then watch the opening sequence of the Devil Wears Prada. It will get you psyched for the week I promise. And if not then at least smile in the thought that your life is not as painful as Andy’s is about to become…


PS – sorry for the youtube opening text. It was the best version I could find…
