The price we pay to party..

May 11th, 2017

I don’t know about you, but for many a year I’ve had a romantic vision of owning a bar. At one time I was seriously thinking about setting up one in Spain. Luckily common sense took over because we would’ve been closed within a month with my weakness for wine and a large G &T or two, never mind my obsession with crisps!  Oh and the fact that it’s a bloody hard job. Mind you some people make it look effortless like Jon Saunders, the founder of Dead Canary and 29 Park Place.

Our monthly event ‘Monday like a Friday’ was born at 29 Park Place, and will stay there until they kick us out! Jon and his team have been amazing, providing the perfect venue for the perfect start to the week. Here at Monday Like a Friday HQ, our mission is to help people to make the most of every minute of every day. Why wish your week away waiting for the weekend, when you can kickstart it by Mondaying Like a Friday, surrounded by positive people who appreciate life?

Our next event is on 22nd May 2017 at 7am, and guess what? The inspirational Jon has agreed to be our next speaker.

Jon will be sharing what he’s learnt while running his award-winning bars. If you want a sneak peak of what he’s all about, have a read of this post. 

Take it from me, there’s a price to pay for partying, and it’s usually a big old hangover. For people like Jon, the work that goes into entertaining us is tough, but like the good feelings we get from partying, its always worth it :-).

So what can you expect at Monday like a Friday? Well there’s music and madness, inspirational talks, and the chance to reflect with our resident Office Om, Goddess of Calm, and energy master Jack Bland, with his magic Qigong.Office Om, Goddess of Calm, and energy master Jack Bland, with his magic Qigong.

Come along and listen to Jon on Monday 22nd May, or get involved with one of the activities and energise yourself for the week.


Everyone leaves smiling, uplifted and motivated. Come to Monday Like a Friday and find out how you can make Monday the most productive day of your week. Give it a go, you only have so many Monday’s left…

I have just done a little sum!

The average age life expectancy in the UK is now 81. 81! We’re all living longer (although if I make it that long it’ll be a miracle with all the gin I’ve enjoyed, but I’ve balanced it out with kale and yoga, it all helps). Anyway, I’m nearly 40 so if I make 81 I’ve got around 2132 ish Mondays left to party through.

Here I am at the first Monday Like a Friday with my bestie Paula and her tiny human Dougie!

For me, it’s is a no brainer. I won’t be wishing any of them away, I’ll be spending them:

  • Being inspired
  • Smiling
  • Laughing
  • Dancing
  • Chatting
  • Drinking good coffee
  • Making new friends
  • Meditating
  • Qigonging
  • Eating warm toast
  • Learning
  • Being with great people

What about you? What are you going to do with your Mondays?

Join us at the next Monday Like a Friday. Book here now and make a difference to your week.
