How Saturdays have changed.

When I was young, we had to attend school on a Saturday.  Classes ran from 9am. until 12.30pm.   Inter-schools sports games were always in the afternoon.  I was not sporty, so I came home to lunch and an afternoon of household chores and food shopping.

In my first job, I worked alternate weekends, although if we found someone to switch duties with, we were then free at that time.

Now my Saturdays have no set pattern.  I no longer have the routine of going to an office five days a week, so Saturday , Monday or Thursday they are all just the same.  There are times when I need to look at the bottom right hand corner of the screen or at my phone to see what day it is.

Living alone, who knows what I get up to.  If you phoned me I might tell you that I was….

  • In bed with Ted and intended staying there all day.
  • Standing on a ladder painting the ceiling with a brush in each hand.
  • Drinking Champagne with a Handsome Toyboy.
  • Writing my memoirs and did not want to be disturbed.
  • Packing for a world cruise.

How do you spend your Saturdays?
