I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m having one of those starts to the year where I continually have to keep double-checking the calendar. Are we really in February? How has that happened so quickly?!
February is traditionally the month when those optimistically-made New Year’s resolutions begin to fall by the wayside and we all reassure ourselves that it’s okay because we can just pick them up again in 11 months time.
This year I didn’t actually even bother to make any, as it’s been such a busy few months that mine would have probably just have been ‘manage to move house without losing my mind/killing Mr A etc…’
As a ‘grown up’ unless you’re planning a sabbatical or a career break, chances are that you’re working full-time and have all of the added joys of running a house/paying the bills. Likewise if you’ve got children, pets or family members who rely on you it’s so easy to get wrapped up in your hectic schedule and the weeks can just fly by as you count down to your one annual holiday and we really shouldn’t live like that.
This has to be the biggest one. I love the feeling of jumping in the car on a Friday night, driving somewhere and checking into a hotel. By the time you’ve been out for a nice meal it’s hard to believe that you were at work earlier that day. And there’s still two whole glorious days before you have to go back to the office.
12. It makes your weekends memorable
