We all have a perfect Sunday in mind. It normally consists of lounging around the house, watching loads of TV and having a traditional Sunday roast. Our survey for Harvey’s Furniture looked into what components make-up the nation’s ideal Sunday and what it consists of.
The study of 2,000 UK adults found that the perfect Sunday consists of waking up at 8:30 am to the smell of breakfast cooking, a cuddle and three hours of television. A quarter of Brits dream about an ideal weekend morning which starts with a Full English breakfast in bed and a third always like to start their Sunday morning with a cup of tea or coffee, before pottering around the house for a leisurely hour.
Spokesman Henry Swift said: “We know the value of a relaxing Sunday spent at home with the family.”
The firm also asked a chef about what makes the perfect Sunday roast.
They claim it can be served to perfection if people know how – with three slices of beef, four roast potatoes and gravy all over the plate, but NOT drowning the food, a must.
The perfect roast would also include a healthy helping of carrots, stuffing balls, broccoli and peas, and would be enjoyed with a partner, as well as mum and dad.
And despite a dinner plate overloaded with food, the average still wants to tuck into an apple crumble or cheesecake following the main meal.
The survey was part of a campaign with our partners, 72Point, who also produced a video to go with the story. The campaign was a resounding success, achieving print coverage in The Daily Star, and digital coverage in national publications such as The Mirror, The Sun and The Express.
