AIBU to miss that Friday feeling

This might only apply to those who work mon-fri type office hours. I remember a few years ago I always used to get a lovely excited feeling on a Friday, No matter what I was doing that weekend or how much I did or didn't enjoy my job, that feeling was always there. I honestly don't think I've had that feeling for a few years now, literally doesn't happen. I realise it's Friday but there's no excitement or particularly nice feeling about it.

Is that something that just happens with age? Or am I just miserable (very possible)?!

Bit lighthearted just interested to hear what people think.

Do you still work in a mon-Fri job?
I do know what you mean, I love my job but in know Friday nights will be relaxed with no preparation for tbe next day and the weekend will be spent with the dc.

Can you figure out what you used to look forward to, exactly?

Well the compensation is no Sunday night feeling.

No I still get the Sunday night feeling unfortunately!! I think this just proves I'm a miserable git!

Ugh the Sunday night feeling confused I hated that so much
The ages of about 7-10 all I can remember was from about 4pm each Sunday that feeling of dread, the biting in my throat from the Sunday night tea of golden syrup on toast and the last of the summer wine on tv and the smell of my school pencil case as I sorted it out for the week ahead

Honestly if I hear that music now I feel exactly the same !

burning not biting

For me it was heartbeat and songs of praise. And sometimes antiques roadshow.
Why did they feel the need to inflict such misery on children on Sunday nights?

I was also wondering recently what's happened to Fridays. When I worked in London 20 years ago, there would always be a few drinks at the pub after work - all ages and levels of staff. Nobody - even the younger ones - does that now. Great shame - a couple of jars beats awaydays and other corporate crap for networking etc.

I'm still traumatised by the golden syrup on toast mostly. No idea how I avoided having fillings

I lost the Friday feeling when dcs started various clubs one on a fri after school and another 9am sat morning it's just a continuation of the school week
