AN OFFICE worker is struggling through Tuesday by focusing on making it to Wednesday, after which there are only two more days until the weekend.
Project manager Helen Archer has spent the morning repeating the words ‘nearly Wednesday’ over and over into her coffee mug like a magic spell against witches.
She said: “If I can get to Wednesday lunchtime it’s downhill the rest of the way.
“I texted ‘nearly Wednesday, lol’ to all my Whatsapp groups. Nobody’s replied yet, but then I haven’t checked my phone for nearly ninety seconds.
“Mathematically Wednesday’s midweek, but emotionally you’re almost done. Thursday’s all about anticipating Friday and Friday is the actual weekend really. It’s just you’re still in the office.”
Archer, who is planning to eat half her sandwich at 11am and the other half at 3pm to trick her brain into thinking she is having a leisurely lunch break, added: “Anyway, bank holiday next week.
“And after that there’s only 11 weeks until my holiday in the Canaries, and after that I really need to start thinking about Christmas.”
