I don't think I'll ever work in weeklies again, I never really enjoyed the last minute rush. Completely changing something you lovingly created in the last minutes before sending to press. Seeing a mistake you'd previously overlooked and knowing that you spend another few hours into the night waiting for new proofs. Jumping when the publisher walked in and hoping to hell he was going to look at the pages and smile and not make any changes.
Nowadays, Thursdays are very different beast. It's the time of the week where the girls and I are busy with their activities. I'm not scratching my head thinking of ways to fill the day. The past few weeks we've also caught up with good friends for a coffee and a play, which we all look forward to. We usually have something particularly yummy for dinner. Later I get to settle back and watch Mad Men, knowing the weekend is only a day away.
Yep, Thursdays are actually a pretty good day. Sure it doesn't have the thrill of Friday or the specialness of Saturday, but all-in-all I wake up happy on a Thursday.
So happy Thursday to you all! Do you have a day in your week that you know will cruise along nicely?
