●”Did nothing all day”
Seems like I started my “do nothing all day” habit as long ago as 1975?
Seriously though, what 17 year-old kid in the seventies would have “nothing to do”?
Nowadays I can excuse a “do nothing day” on middle-aged tiredness or sheer bloody-minded belligerence, but at 17 surely the world was my proverbial oyster?
I feel retrospectively resentful of what I didn’t do this weekend 35 years ago.
