Bank Holiday Joy :)

It’s Friday again and this one is even more special as it is the Friday before the Bank holiday weekend….3 days free from work!!
I am super excited to have a few days away from the office and to just have some fun and enjoy the weekend. I think I am going to go to a plum festival tomorrow, I went last year and there was a lot to look around and lots of different foods to try. When I first heard about the plum festival I didn’t know what to expect but it was actually quite nice to wonder around the town as I hadn’t been there before and there was load of things to do.
There are always a lot of events on in the surrounding areas to where I live over bank holiday weekend so I am hoping the weather will be nice so we can enjoy and spend the majority of the weekend outside.
I have been really trying to stay focused all week so I can achieve the most I can so it will be nice to have a couple of days a little bit more relaxed. I think we should have 3 day weekends every week because it allows you to have enough time away from work to realise that work isn’t actually your life and it allows you to detach slightly from work. The longer I work without longer than a 2 day weekend the more I become attached to work and start to forget about other possibilities and I stop to think about what I would actually like to do with my life. Whereas when I have extra time away from work I start to think about other ideas and things that I would like to do and work seems not as important. My work ethic is still the same but I don’t let it over take my life and become dependent on it. So I am looking forward to having a little more brain freedom to explore alternative work ideas.
Enjoy your weekend everyone!

  1. Very true. Work does take on a larger than life form if we don’t break free from its shackles once in a while. Taking the weekends off exploring our interests does make life more meaningful and interesting providing us with a good work-life balance. Enjoy your weekend!

  2. A bank holiday sounds incredible. Is that a holiday that happens during certain months? My mom used to be a bank manager before she retired but I can’t remember if she enjoyed holiday perks if her bank workplace was closed on specific days…
