```it is simpler than i thought

first day of given week is the last day minus 6days

in other words:
d1 = as.Date('2018 00 Sat',format="%Y %U %a") - 6
d2 = as.Date('2018 00 Sun',format="%Y %U %a")
are the same as long both are not NA

therefore to get the one that is not NA one can do

max( c(d1,d2), na.rm=TRUE )

maybe there is some other trick

best,
peter
