#BEDM Day 6 - Bank Holiday

Hi all!

I can't believe we're nearly a week into this challenge already! It's just another reminder that time goes so fast.

Today's task is: It's a long weekend! What are your favourite ways to enjoy the extra long weekend off work?

Bank holidays make little difference to me because currently I'm too ill to work. Ordinarily we'd go out for the day and make the most of hubby's extra day off, but he had to work today. He works in IT for a Swedish company and he and his boss spent their day knee deep in network cables. Imagine having to plug about 200 cables into the back of your tv in exactly the right order and that's the kind of day they had. :)

I had the best of intentions for today. I always write out a 'To Do' list each night before bed and I planned to get lots done while hubby was at work. Instead James found me looking at photos on the computer and crying when he came home. My ethos is to always be honest with you on this blog so I always will be. My best friend is moving to Canada next week and I am scraped raw with sadness. I spent most of yesterday in bed sobbing with the covers pulled up over my head. I spent this morning reminiscing over old times. It's almost like grieving. I feel like I need to curl inward to protect myself, but then that just adds to the loneliness I feel in anticipation of Rach leaving.

I hate wallowing in sadness so I just suggested we go on a walk, hubby and I. I put all my sadness into speed-walking up hills and got it out of my system, for now anyway. Plus I got to stroke a cute Staffy, which always makes my day.

What's your favourite thing to do on a bonus day off?
What cheers you up when you're sad?

Thanks for reading.
