This is - officially - the best way to spend a Sunday


Waking up early to the smell of a full English is the start of what new research claims is the “perfect Sunday”.

A survey of 2000 people commissioned by furniture retailer Harveys also points to cuddles and TV as vital parts of a good weekend.

A third of people surveyed say they like to start the day with a cup of tea and a full English in bed, before wandering around the house for an hour or so.


A morning walk, a quick trip to the pub and then a Sunday roast are how twenty three percent of people want to spend their afternoons – 3.15pm is the prime time to tuck in, apparently.

And nearly fifty percent of people like to wind up their laidback Sunday by watching exactly three hours and 16 minutes worth of film or TV with their families.

There are also some pretty specific rules for a good roast dinner, according to this survey – three slices of beef, four roast potatoes and gravy liberally spread across the food without “drowning it” makes up the perfect plate. 

Dunno what’s wrong with not opening the curtains for twelve hours, marathoning Netflix and spilling takeaway leftovers all over yourself/the sheets, but there we go.
