Thank goodness it’s Friday! When the clock strikes 4:30 (let’s be honest here) the euphoric TGIF moment becomes reality. What this moment represents is the maximum amount of free time you’ll have until you have to start thinking about work again. Spread over the course of a couple of hours, this moment evolves into what we call the ‘Friday Feeling’!
If you’re heading out tonight, you’ll probably put a lot more thought into preparing to go out then you do on your arrival back home. Getting to the pub/club/druid circle is already mapped out by early afternoon however the journey’s back to home-base are never so smooth.
We’re giving you a heads up to say that it really pays off to prepare your bedroom before you leave for a night out.
1. Pre-chill that water
The first thing you need to do when you get into your bedroom (apart check you have the big three: phone, keys, wallet) is guzzle down as much water as you possibly can. Do yourself a favour and have a glass or two ready for your arrival. Go the extra mile and pre-chill a bottle for super-cool points.
2. Change the sheets
There is no simpler pleasure in this world than cool, clean bedsheets. Sleeping drunk is not the most comfortable experience. It’s easy to pass out but the alcohol keeps your body working throughout the night meaning that you’re privy to random awakenings throughout the night. The clean sheets make everything easier.
3. Have tomorrow’s supplies ready
This one is a risky but genius move. Buy your hangover supplies in advance so they’re right by your bedside when you wake up feeling like your skull is full of rocks. The hard part is now chowing down on Doritos and Lucozade feast when you arrive into your bedroom with the drunk hunger.

4. Prepare for someone staying over
We don’t mean this in the ‘maybe you’ll get lucky kind of way’, although this is good advice for that too, but rather, generally prepare your bedroom for guests. Maybe someone who didn’t want to get the tube back to their place. If you’re rocking the single bed, set-up your sofa or camp-bed prior to leaving.
I can tell you many-a-story about trying to blow up an air-mattress with seven pints of Devil’s Backbone sloshing around my insides. It never ends well.
