The Favourite Day of my Week
October 16, 2016 8:24am CST
The favourite day of my week is Monday. It used not to be because, when I was working, Monday was the day I had to get up early and go to work. I did not awake then with any great excitement about the day ahead. Things have changed since I retired. Monday is now my favourite day for several reasons. Friday is a busy day as I want to end the week with all my chores done, the house clean and the laundry washed ironed and put away. Apart from a little gardening I like to be leisurely at the weekend. So I greet Monday feeling rested and ready for action and I feel rather rejuvenated on Monday mornings and excited about the week ahead. My biggest joy on Mondays is that it is Skype time with my daughter in England. We have a routine of having coffee together although miles apart. She goes on line and so do I and it is almost as though I am sitting in the kitchen with her. When I lived in England I think we took one another for granted, we telephoned regularly and from time to time made the long car journey to visit but it was haphazard. Now we have this precious hour once a week and strange though it may be, we feel closer to one another, although physically much further apart, since making our Monday morning call a regular part of our lives.

I like Saturday and Sunday in my week,though I have been retired,because during two days,my granddaughter is back to her parents' and we have a little time to ourselves.Over here we have Wechat similar to your Skype.

No wonder , now that you are retired you like Monday the best . Nothing can compare to the joy of talking with a love one even though it's through the internet . It connects us anyway . I love Mondays too , because it is challenging . I am ready to wake up early by Monday . My eyes are already programmed to sleep early on weekdays .
