Newsletter reader Jo says that seizing the day is all very well, but every once in a while, when negative events are crowding in upon you, seizing anything just seems too much like hard work, and you need a “doona day”. Of course, no-one would ever suggest that seizing should take place 24/7.
I don’t think that the doona day concept requires much explanation. Of course, in the context of a spouse and a few ankle biters, it’s wise to seek permission first — which may or may not be granted.
My research suggests that the Romans didn’t have doonas — which may account for the fall of the Roman Empire. Latin speakers may like to correct my attempt to translate “doona day” into Latin as “stragulum dies”.
Are there other advocates of the doona day out there? Do you have personal experience of the benefits of a doona day?
