Work a week and play a week. If you were not at work then you must be playing. I remember my parents using this phrase when there was not much work. I wished that did not have to go to school at the time.

My Grandma always used the expression, "playing" meaning not working. She would say that people were playing if the mill was closed for a holiday, e.g. Wakes weeks.

Was that a derivation of 'larking'? I remember my grandfather accusing me of 'larking about when I was reading!!
