Friday, Saturday, Sunday

Start with a going-away dance party in a pear orchard: all you need is a bonfire, almost-full moon and killer sound system. A disco ball doesn’t hurt. Go to bed at three and wake up with woodsmoke in your hair.

Go to a dear friend’s twenty-first birthday. Wear your sister’s blue dress, drink champagne and admire the company. Meet her family, tear up at the speeches and dance again.

Wear pyjamas well into the afternoon. Call up another friend and arrange a last-minute dinner. Go for a walk and cook together. Go home and watch some trash television with a live-in friend. Sleep.
