Bank Holiday Discombobulations

I am so glad we are nearing the end of the week!  Every year, the end of August Bank Holiday really confuses the heck out of me and even though I have only worked 4 days in my 9-5 job I feel like I have worked 2 weeks straight.

Tuesday morning I woke convinced it was Monday, and quite happily went off to work.  Then I realised that it was actually Tuesday, which was fine by me.  Then, just before lunch, I felt like it was a Friday as there were not many people in and that feeling didn’t leave me all day.

Wednesday I went to work and it felt like a Thursday which was really weird.  At some point, my internal calendar overcompensated for its mistake and I then thought it was Tuesday.

I don’t know why this always happens with this Bank Holiday and not any others through the year but it is really tiring having to try and remember what day it is.

Roll on the weekend is all I can think!  I need to catch up on this week that feels like I have lived it twice!

Do Bank Holidays throw your internal calendar into disarray and discombobulate you too?  Id love to hear in the comments!

  1. While being a nanny, the bank holidays didn’t really bother me all that much. It was just another day. Actually, I enjoyed the bank holidays! I didn’t like that it meant my pay would be less (and let’s be honest, I kind of needed every penny some times) but it was the only time I’d get two days off in a row. So I cherished them. Especially during the last year when I had already mentally checked out. I’m sure it will be different with my teaching job. We have a Mon-Fri teaching schedule instead of the normal day 1-5 so it’ll be an adjustment lol

  2. Here in Canada last weekend in August marks end of summer and end of school holidays. For many moms it’s a beginning of a new year, more so than January 1. 🙂

    But yes when holiday Mondays are upon us the whole rest of week confuses me. What day is it? Who needs what where when? Who am I? Lol
