Sounds of Saturday

Ah, how I love Saturday!  Weekends, of course, are fabulous but Saturday has an extra zing of promise that Sunday, followed so closely by Monday as it is, just doesn’t have.

Saturday is safe in the knowledge that it can kick back a little, knowing that Sunday is there to pick up the slack.

Saturday even comes with its own soundtrack.  The pop of the toaster, the sizzle of the omelet pan, the rustle of the Welshman’s Sydney Morning Herald.  The insistent buzz of the coffee grinder, the varied sloshes, whirs and beeps of the washing machine, and Boyo’s Saturday morning cartoons, so evocative of my own childhood.  The blips and sounds of the Boyo’s Wii or DS, not to mention his running commentary so we don’t miss a thing – so different from my own childhood!  The gentle groan accompanying my every movement as my muscles relive Friday’s Pilates session.  The chatter of pocket money negotiations, shopping lists and entreaties to a small boy to get into the shower!

Many of these sounds echo throughout the week, but there is something about the magic of a Saturday that turns them into a playlist.

Do you have a favourite day of the week? Oh, do tell.  I’d love to hear all about it!

  • […] favourite day of the week isn’t Saturday.  Saturdays are pretty awesome, of course!  Saturday even has its own soundtrack in our house.  But as special as Saturdays are, they’re just not […]ReplyCancel

    Agreed, Saturdays are the best. No contest. Period. Have you noticed that after Monday and Tuesday even the calendar says WTF?ReplyCancel

      Ah, you’ve been waiting for an opportunity such as this to whip out that line. It was worth the wait x

    Ah, yes.  Good point.  Well, Saturday is a state of mind, I reckon!ReplyCancel

    I felt like I was at your place on a Saturday morning reading that – loved it!! Saturday is also my favourite day of the week, as you have the whole day and night to do as you please. Well, it will be when our renovations are finished…whenever that may be!!ReplyCancel

      When your renovations are over, you can enjoy a fabulous Saturday relaxing in your gorgeous “new” house.
      Thanks, Sonia!  I’m glad the mood I was in when I wrote it came across in my writing.ReplyCancel

    Nice post, very evocative. I’m in the grip of Sunday night angst after 2 weeks off work so the soundtrack is very dark and slow…..ReplyCancel

      Thank you!  How was your first day back?!  I went back last week on Tuesday but because I had ANZAC Day off, it didn’t really feel like I’d started again!ReplyCancel

    Hi KM – I can almost picture it – Mark negotiating how much pocket money you will let him have… Thanks for the smile 🙂 Simon UReplyCancel

      Haha – just laughing at the thought of me running the budget!  Thanks for the giggle! 😉

      The pocket money negotiations are quite serious though – now that he is 8, he gets $8, but we need to establish how much money he owes the Bank of Dad and what essentials he needs to purchase this week, and what other essential item he is saving up for the next year for?!ReplyCancel
