It’s Bad Friday Today

I’ve always hated Bank Holidays.  I can remember as a child, that unless there was football at White Hart Lane, I’d generally be left to my own devices.  At least when my father had his print works, we’d generally go down there and do something.  You can never have said he didn’t have a work ethic.

When C  and I had the children at home, it wasn’t as boring, as usually we’d find something to do.  After the kids had left, we’d often go racing or shopping at somewhere like Bluewater. But generally we’d arrange to be away, as after all everything is crowded.  Although on one memorable Bank Holiday with sunshine everywhere, we did decide to go to the Norfolk Coast with the dogs for a swim for her and perhaps a paddle for me.  But we got sea-fog and were back home by one after one of the most miserable Bank Holidays we ever spent.

Today, I’ve nothing planned and will probably go for a walk or to a museum or art gallery.  It’s the same on Saturday and Sunday.  But on Monday, I’m off to Swansea to see Ipswich.  But after last night’s disaster at Portman Road, that is unlikely to be a happy experience.

And what with the Royal Wedding and May Day coming up, this few next weeks has the impression, that it is not going to be very fulfilling. But saying that I do have friends coming for the wedding.

  1. Bank holiday weekends are always hard for people who live alone. I remember when I lived alone. These two consecutive 4 day weekends are a pain anyway.
