Day of rest

Sunday is still our customary day of rest. We might go for a cycle or a walk, visit family or have a more elaborate meal than we would during the week. Whether it’s a home-made Sunday meal – of roast beef with croquettes followed by apple pie or baklava, for example – or a take-away meal. On this day time is on our side. So we can push the boat out a little.
