At the weekend, we had a text inviting us for coffee next Tuesday. Next and this always confuses us so we took it to mean today. We duly turned up and flummoxed our friend who replied, "you're a week early".

Initially we thought she was joking, but she wasn't. We had a bit of a "what are we like" moment then got invited in to have coffee and a chat anyway.

We should have realised when re-reading the text  as she had mentioned inviting another friend as well, but she works in a school and isn't on half term break until next week!

Ah well, all's well that ends well:)


  1. The confusion between this week and next week - happens here too.

  2. Next and this is always a confusing moment.

  3. You know, growing up and to this day (I am 54), we never used "next". It's ridiculous, imo! It has always been (including our grown children, who do what we do) "this" or "a week from this..."! Seriously. Who thought up using "next" at all?!?!!
