Another year; time for another site makeover.
Time always gets a little confusing for me at this time of year, as the days are the wrong colour.
For as far back as I can remember, each of the days has had a different hue. They’re all rectangular, but Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holiday Mondays are a bit bigger than normal weekdays.
The festive season throws a spanner in the works as, for some reason, Christmas Day and New Year’s Day are both the same colour and shape as Sunday; and Boxing Day is also the same a Bank Holiday Monday.
What this means is my internal mechanism has been in sync with the calendar at Christmas only about 5 or 6 times since I was born. Every other year I lose what sense of day it is completely.
With New Year’s Day being yesterday, Saturday should be over half a week away, rather than tomorrow, so the fact the kids go back to school in 3 days rather than 6 feels like they’ve been short-changed on their holidays.
Come Tuesday I should have realigned my subconscious with a notional reality.
