Yey! It's Friday!
This has been the longest week ever, despite (or perhaps because of) Monday being a bank holiday, i.e. a holiday for everyone except the poor sods who work in shops and public transport. In theory, this week should have felt nice and short, after all there were only four days in it. Instead, it has felt like it's dragged on for ever! Maybe it's the weather, as it's been pretty miserable all week long (including the long weekend - what a waste), or perhaps it's the fact that I've had too many late nights over the weekend and wasn't able to get into my normal sleeping patterns during the week. Going to bed at 2 and 3 AM is fine if you can wake up at 10 AM the next day, but not so fun if you have to be at work by 9. Ho hum.
Or perhaps time expands to what we're used to - it may be a four-day week but it feels like a five-day week because that's what we usually get. Only because we know it's a short week, we keep thinking it must be finishing soon, which makes it appear even longer.
I've been thinking "it must be Friday" since Wednesday, and so it feels like Friday has taken far too long to arrive. But today it really is Friday and the weather forecast for the (normal-sized) weekend ahead is "cloudy with sunny intervals" so at least it won't be wet, so it's yeyyyyyyy time!
I can't wait for some hard earned rest ;-)
