Midlife Bank Holiday vs young person’s Bank Holiday

How was it for you? Traffic jam back from the inlaws or last minute citybreak? We’re guessing the former…

Midlife Bank Holidays:

shopping for school shoes

feeding the bees

sitting in traffic on way back from inlaws

planting a fruit tree


spending all afternoon drinking in a family friendly pub with beer garden (alongside lots of other desperate families)

a windy beach in fleeces

making blackberry jam

cleaning out your cupboards

dealing with work backlog

going into the office on your bosses’ orders, even though your boss is ‘working from home’

chilly barbecue

post-holiday washing

the new Miss Marple

park. again.

What you used to do on Bank Holidays:

Making your ears bleed at the Notting Hill Carnival


Spending all day drinking at a cool new bar/bistro/diner

raucous barbecue

last minute minibreak, on impulse

sunbathing in Southend


What did you do?
