This was quite a common thing when I was in the RAF in late 60`s and up to 77..
Having something like a wall planner ,and just cross the days , up to say in isolation period of say 28 days .
One the most popular sayings at the time was days to do are getting few .

When I was still working, and looking forward to being retired, I had a chart with the number of monthly salary days left marked in squares, which I ticked off religiously.

Good idea Mick but unfortunately even after the isolation period we are still very restricted in what we can do and will be for some time IMHO.
A chart is good when there is an end in sight but .............

I have the day marked in my diary - but have a feeling it may well be extended. Even if recommendations are eased it will be gradually over a period of time.

I used to do that when I did my stretch in Holloway.
Only kidding 😃
Seriously I am staying put for as long as necessary.

One of my greatest pleasures in the months before the golden date of my retirement was deleting the days from my online countdown.
I also enjoyed meetings where dates were set for next meeting and I wouldn't have to be there!

Oh yes, Jane, I remember that feeling.

DH woke me on Tuesday with 'pinch, punch, 1st of the month, no returns' so I duly wished someone happy birthday on FB.
