I have always loved Sundays as a child, this meant afternoon family outings, sometimes even whole days out and a roast dinner all sat down together, a thing that probably only happened on Sundays.
Now to me it means relaxed family time (well I am relaxed not sure about anyone else), a trip to the beach (my favourite), basically Sunday means take the pressure off. Yes all that washing still needs to be done (please note I say nothing about ironing we use a very natural iron in our household it’s called body heat !) and food needs to be prepared but lets take our time. There is no time schedule for this day it’s just a take it as it comes day.
On the other hand my daughter Bex and my husband hate Sundays (why?) apparently it is because Mondays follow Sunday (!), they love the trip to the beach, the fact I’m not having to constantly say “have you got this, have you done” that before having to rush off to school or work. They love the fact I may have baked cakes to have with a pot of tea (has to be a pot on a Sunday – see post of simple pleasures) and they love roast dinner but they still hate Sundays.
Oscar my son enjoys any day he is not at school, although he will say he doesn’t like Sunday evenings, I can see that although to me Sunday evenings are still more relaxed as I am more relaxed and again yes there are things to get ready but it feels more relaxed.
Is it me or does everything seem so much calmer on Sundays? Living in Cornwall things are much quieter as most things are shut (except the supermarkets). I know in Bath where we come from although still busy it still is a more relaxed busy, perhaps that’s why I also love Sundays, it’s a calm day and I love calm !
So if you hate Sunday because Mondays follow please don’t, although I have yet to convert some of my rather more stubborn family members to the fact Sundays are fab.
Not forgetting those who work Sundays (I am sorry) but what ever you are doing I know we need you and I hope you pretend your day off is a Sunday when it comes around.
So Love your Sunday whatever you are doing, I am about to have a relaxing cuppa !
