your post-bank holiday guide to what day of the week it is

It can be difficult coming back to work after a bank holiday. You've enjoyed your time away from your desk and, because you've lost a work day, it can be a busier week than you're used to. Not to mention the fact that years of working means you're so used to the first day back being a Monday. You're thrown off for the rest of the week, constantly checking your calendar to remind yourself what day it is.

So, to help you navigate this potential time trap, we’ve written a handy guide.

Yesterday was Monday but, as it was a bank holiday, it was really Sunday. Sunday was still Sunday. So was Saturday. That is, it wasn’t Sunday, it was still Saturday. Today is Monday but by Monday we mean Tuesday. Tomorrow, Wednesday, it’s Tuesday. Nobody quite knows what Thursday is. Friday will feel like Thursday but the best Thursday ever because it’s really Friday. Saturday is still Saturday.

Glad we could clear that up for you.
