Guru is all for celebrating kosher national days (St George’s Day, St Andrew’s Day, Talk Like a Pirate Day, etc), but matters are getting out of hand.
Over the past fortnight, Guru has been repeatedly badgered by one PR consultant desperate to get a mention of National Bring Your Dog To Work Week (the PR was representing a dog food company, weirdly enough).
But now Guru has been informed that this coming Sunday is National Lie-in Day. Do you know what this entitles you to? A whole extra hour in bed, apparently – and not even on a work day. This particular day is the brainchild of “one of the UK’s biggest suppliers of beds and mattresses”, which recommends using this time off “to consider whether your mattress is up to spec”. Funny that.
