It's pissing it down. There's jack shit on telly and your mates are all still enjoying their holildays in the sun. Yet it's the only extra day off that you're gong to have for the next two months. What's a person in Wales to do on a Rainy Bank Holiday Monday? WalesOnCraic gives you some crap ideas (because we don't know what to do either)
You go to head upstairs but you know that as soon as you've switched the landing light on, that there's no bulb there. Why? Because you took it out to use in the spare bedroom when you were looking for Superglue to fix your slipper. It takes a few minutes to go down the Spar, get a new one and pop it in.
They've been sat in your hallway for weeks. You're always in a rush when you head out the door - too much of a rush to take them with you. Well get it done today - they'll be closed of course but just dump that shit outside their front door like everyone else does. Charity starts at home, as they say.
You've been meaning to do it for months. Every time you go to the kitchen to make a cuppa, you trip over your own frigging slipper. And your other half mutters under their breath that you should either get a new pair. Get down the Spar and get some Superglue will you?
Every time you sit on that cold plastic seat, you tell yourself that you really do need to hoover behind the toilet. Come on. Get it done - you'll feel so much more at peace the next time you sit down to take a dump.
It broke the day you bought it. Yet every time you come in the front door and think to yourself 'I need to fix that', you head on in, put the kettle on and forget about it. Come on. It'll take a few minutes maximum. Promise.
You only used it once to try out a fancy recipe but that was two months ago. Since then, it's been sat next to the sink 'soaking'.
With nothing but another re-run of Raiders of the Lost Ark on, what better time to sort out the shit behind the telly?
Whenever you need a pen, you can never, EVER find one. And when you do, the ball-tip is dried and covered in fluff. Go on - treat yourself to a new pack from down the Spar. It is Bank Holiday after all.
It's been on your list of things to do for months. Remember that time that the other half got locked out because YOU'D lost YOUR key and you borrowed THEIRS? Yes. Remember that.
Every time you're sat there watching Corrie, you can see them out of the corner of your eye - little fluffy bits of spider ruining your TV viewing, night after night. Get a big pointy stick and sort them once and for all. There! Much better!
