Bank holiday, bank holiday, how fabulous, how fine. Bank holiday, bank holiday, now bring me the wine!
Maybe not the greatest verse I’ve ever come up with, but the sentiment is there nonetheless. Happy Bank Holiday! Welcome to four days of carefree and fancy fun, or, if you’re self-employed, a normal working weekend just with a few more people knocking about. I love bank holidays – especially when both the Friday and the Monday are included – because everybody seems to lose their shit and over-indulge in every way possible. “A bank holiday, you say Sue? Right, day trip to the beach, fire up the BBQ and get a crate of beers in. Oh, and don’t forget the eggs!! The bloody chocolate eggs!” Aaaand repeat for every day possible.
My plans for this weekend are actually fairly mellow. I’m heading out furniture shopping with Keiran today, getting my nails done tomorrow morning for a BNO (big night out, duh) with the gals on Saturday, to of course be followed by a raging hangover on Sunday and fingers crossed a BBQ. Monday will be spent back at the desk, tackling admin and finances etc. BUT I will resist reality until then.
Aside from the above day plans, I’m actually looking forward to indulging in some of the little things that make me happy – you know, the everyday stuff that often gets pushed to the side when you’re working and caught up in the fuss of daily life. In the hopes that my lil’ list might inspire you somewhat, here are 5 small things I’m looking forward to this bank holiday…
3. Drinking a crap load of fussy coffee. My coffee orders differs depending on my venue of choice. Costa warrants a Skinny Vanilla Chai Latte, Starbucks a Skinny Salted Toffee Macadamia Latte, and any smaller independent coffee shops, a Skinny Caramel Latte. All of these orders are fussy as fuck and I love them. Any opportunity to indulge in a coffee this weekend will be seized with both hands.
