Ultimate Bank Holiday Monday

T Minus 88

With awe I have just realised that this is our last Bank Holiday Monday in the UK. Another milestone! The next one will be three days after we leave on August 25th 😮
In general I’m not (like most people I think) a great fan of Monday’s. It’s not that I don’t like work per se although the first Monday back after a holiday can be a pain. I don’t get thoroughly depressed, work has it’s own interests too (and in teaching no two lessons are ever the same – even with the same classes week by week). For me it’s the return to structure and formality (in my case a defined timetable) after the freedom of a weekend which can feel burdensome. Bank Holiday Mondays are an exception, a day of possibilities. Today we are spending time with Anita’s family – a good chance to catch up with all, play silly games, go for a walk if the weather holds out.

Mondays often feature, often negatively in songs. On my iPod I have several Monday tunes – here they are (YouTube versions) for your listening pleasure.

New Order – Blue a Monday

Boomtown Rats – I Don’t Like Mondays

Bangles – Manic Mondays

Duran Duran – New Moon on Monday

Flunk – Blue Monday (cover)

Finally and because it’s a Bank Holiday

Blur – Bank Holiday

Have a great Monday wherever you are.

Monday nights are Badminton nights. A chance to let off steam. It’s been a while since I’ve been, Bank Holiday Mondays and the general business of life have taken it’s toll. However, it’s nice to be back. The group comprises members of St Mary’s Bletchley and Whaddon Way Churches plus friends. I’ve been going on and off for six years or so – initially as a way of losing weight, now along with running a way of keeping fit.

I understand there is a Badminton Court in the school in Mwanza so hopefully I can continue overseas. I will miss this group on a Monday night though.20140519-204402-74642542.jpg20140519-204404-74644198.jpg20140519-204741-74861162.jpg
