Now that things are opening up again, weekends are no longer just meaningless lumps of time that appear at the end of the working week. We actually have plans now. If you have more than one Type A personality in your friendship group, chances are you have LOTS of plans (anyone else getting WhatsApps asking you if you’re free for dinner in JULY?!).
Not that we’re complaining. This gradual return to life just so happens to coincide with a BANK HOLIDAY WEEKEND. The second May Bank Holiday weekend no less. The Met Office will try and tell you that summer begins on June 21, but we know the truth. Summer really begins with that first May Bank Holiday, a time when we all silently agree to kiss goodbye to our sleeves at the first whisper of sunshine. Not that we’ve had so much as a whisper.
Consider these three days off work your chance to reintegrate into society. Reacquaint yourself with the thrill of eating a meal you didn’t have to cook by booking a table at a great restaurant, head to the theatre for the first time in 2021, wander around an art gallery for free or go on a walk because you actually want to – not because it’s the only option.
