"If I get up earlier on a Sunday, it almost feels like an extra day off!"
I do not like working on Sunday, but our shop is open for 4 hours from 11am till 3pm. It seems to kill the day completely. The last few weeks I have risen earlier and sat in my sunny chair with a cup of tea and read for a bit until the kids emerged. Then we have a delicious cooked brunch and head to work. It is ALMOST like having another day off! It is not how I would choose to spend every Sunday, but it is a good compromise.
