Today is Thursday.

This has been a public service announcement for those, like myself, who have been finding it difficult to keep track of the days.

As you were.

Yes, but which Thursday? Is this the 2rd or 3nd Thursday of this week?

I'm still annoyed that 2 weeks ago the week had 3 Tuesdays in it. I never did work out where Monday went...

For the record: April ended yesterday, though historians aren't sure when it began as records don't go that far back.
;D  Andrij.  I pronounce you Complete and Utter GIT   :thumbsup:

As, for clarity, did Thursday.  Weirdly, I didn't see this thread until now.
Careful, Kim. Your sarcasm's showing...

I just saw this, because Kim posted, putting it into my unread list.

I didnt question the premise for some moments.

Mondays are being held in reserve until everyone goes back to work, at which point there'll be at least two months of nothing but, weekends included.

Something to look forward to.

Thursday again.** Bin day tomorrow.*

*Check locally for details.
**Be aware that for some, this might be the first Thursday. In which case, welcome to Thursday! We're sure you'll have a great day in Thursday. Also be aware that due to time zone differences, for you this might be Wednesday or Friday. This will also be the case if you're reading this tomorrow or yesterday. In which case, happy time travel!

It's also Ascension, which is a holiday in France, ditto in Germany where it's rather sweetly called Christi Himmelfahrt.  The polis here are merrily lying in wait for 4-day-weekend travellers alighting from trains, hoping to catch those who break the 100km limit and relieve them of 135€.

I always get this mixed up with Assumption, which is Maria Himmelfahrt. I think that's in June. Then again, I might be thinking of Corpus Christi. Going to have to look these up now!

Corpus Christi is next Thursday (between The Ascension and Pentecost/Whitsun.
The Assumption is August 15th

And today is green bin day here (it used to be Monday, but they've changed it since they restarted green collections after the initial lockdown when they were cancelled).
Not that we have a green bin, but I was treated to the site of the wagon reversing done the road outside my 'office' this morning. Glad I don't have to do that manoeuvre.

We have a blue bin for recyclables and an orange one for the rest. Actually, we have two orange ones, a gift from the council when we moved in here 30 years ago. With kids & in-laws gone we only need one, so the other served for years as a water butt.  One year, when it was full of rain water, we had a bloke in to do some fencing work. When he was taking his pay he said "oh, that bin of yours: it was full of water so I emptied it for you and left it down flat".

Thursday is bin-day for us. We also had a diary entry for a phone call, involving us, Jan's sisters and our Melbourne daughter. That used up a couple of hours this morning/evening, depending which end of the phone you were on.

As opposed to when that corpse is Chisti. Then you need to contact an undertaker...

It is green bin day here, that's the rubbish collection. The black bin is recycling.

The black bin is also half the size of the green bin which is most annoying.
