Bank Holidays are some sort for kryptonite for us Brits. Three day weekends devoted to drinks, duvets and best friend/boyfriend/sister date days a.k.a. a dream. With our final one of the year complete, of course comes the age-old pointer of inventing our own Bank Holidays, non? For example, I'm a strong advocate of 3 days weekends forevermore: one day for fun, one for life admin and one for some rest and relaxation.

If I could be the inventor of a new Bank Holiday, it'd be a regular occurence. I say the third Monday in every month, named the Dreamers' Day. Because once every few Mondays, you need some added time to fix up and regenerate yourself. I mean, it's scientifically proven in my diary that too many work-laden Mondays just aren't that healthy for you. Here's what I advocate:

Saturday:- Fill up that diary so you have breakfast plans, lunch plans (or merge them together for a totes trendy brunch plan), dinner plans and things in between. I like slotting in a morning run, a shopping date and a couple hours exploring a new city/town.

Sunday:- Get organised. If you didn't manage any exercise on Saturday, do it today. Let's be honest here, Saturdays were made for food, gin and friends. So go for a run or squeeze an hour in at the gym, shower off and grab a blanket. Make a Wunderlist of the things you need to do. Pay bill, transfer money to XYZ friend, write the week's shopping list or food plan, file invoices for the week, reply to any outstanding emails. There; organisation bliss. Remake your bed with fresh sheets, light a candle and put out some fresh blooms. My Granny supplies me with an endless supply from her garden of dreams! Update your Pinterest board, list up on Goodreads, write a handwritten page of notes about whatever's on your mind.

Monday:- Dreamers' Day Bank Holiday. Settle down with a cup of Chai, some blogs and music/Netflix programming of choice. That's it, that's all I recommend.

Following that and this morning's blog bulletin, it's time to get creative. I have a Personal Planner to share with one of you lucky readers. For my full review, you can click here but basically it's a customisable planner for any use at any time of the year. Ideal for getting blog organised or Uni organised, it's pretty perfect for this time of year.

  1. I love the name Dreamers day! I think for me, it'd be somewhere at the end of November/beginning of December when the stress of Christmas really starts, and it'd just be a day where you don't have to work, shops are shut and you can just spend it either getting things together, sorting out your presents/life without the stress of last minute things or just spend it with family you may night have time to see on Christmas day. I'd call it Festivities day, as it would get you in the mood for all the wonderful things autumn/winter offers. I know I could definitely use it as working in retail means you pick up extra hours at Christmas, and then before you know it you don't have any time to shop or wrap anything!

  2. I would invent Siblings day. There is a Mothers Day, Fathers Day & Grand Parents Day so why not a Sibling day xxx

  3. A sister's day

  4. I would have a blackout day - just for the day enjoy quality time with your friends, family without phones and computers :) xx

  5. Outside day! Everyone would be given the day off to to outside and enjoy the great outdoors!
