I Hate Friday’s

I apologise now, I’ve been faking it. I hate Friday. My friends will be shocked and I do feel bad as each week I WhatsApp a list of mates (victims) with my deliriously ecstatic ‘Happy Friday!’ message. But, Friday’s are the absolute worst day of my week… well Friday night. Each week I rise at…
