Good morning Bendigo! 27/05/2014

Good morning Bendigo - happy Tuesday! 

Tuesday is my least favourite day of the week and I think it has something to do with where the day is positioned.

You're not fresh from the weekend like on Monday and it does not mark the middle of the week like Wednesday.

I like Thursday, everyone likes Friday and for a large number of people they don't have to work on the weekend. 

What is your least favourite day?

Email me on madeleine.wines@fairfaxmedia.com.au and I will post them in tomorrow's Good Morning Bendigo.
