What we (don’t) get up to on weekends

One of those annoyingly-inane little surveys that appeared in the media this week was that offered by the website lastminute.com, which sought to suggest that up to 2.5 million Britons habitually lie about their plans for the weekend – i.e. seeking to make them sound more active and interesting than they are.

In contrast, the survey results suggested, most of us actually spend our weekends watching television (34%), catching up upon lost sleep (27%), cleaning our homes (11%), attending to ‘life’ administration (8%) or getting drunk (5%).

The only worrying aspect of these findings is that – for the most part – at my age, the above is what I do on weekdays.

Worse, at this current mid-stage of the week, I cannot even remember what I do at weekends.
