Bank Holiday Monday

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
It's a holiday here in the UK today So most ppl are off work.... (not that it makes too much of a difference to me as I have not got a job anyway so every day is a holiday )

In traditional bank holiday fashion I had a little lie in, got up had breakfast and I have just cleaned the windows!

How are you spending today?

Rain, rain, go away, come again another day!

I did think fo doing my windows or popping to the Garden Centre to get some Autumn and Winter plants and add a wall of pots, but this rain seems to be foiling my plans!

I am going to enjoy a long hot bath though!

Why does this always happen in the Land of Manc?! *sigh*

Mr. Tolstoy woke us up bright and early - not that I think he gave hubby much chance to sleep anyway . Daughter phoned us from the Leeds Festival to say they were packing up their tent and waiting for their lift - their tent was burgled on Friday night/Saturday morning so we were relieved to hear from her and that she was ok.

We will probably take a walk into town later before getting back to hear Leicester City get beaten again in the football

Yay! Thank you again, Susan! I just hope the sun comes back, so I can dry my lovely smelling clothes!

I am glad someone mentioned this - I looked on the calendar this morning and it said "Bank Holidy (UK)" - what kind of Holiday is this?
post #11 of 25
Our public holidays are called Bank Holidays Tracey because all the banks and financial institutions don't operate on those days. If I remember correctly this is just the Summer Bank holiday - I don't think it celebrates/commemorates anything in particular. Somebody else may know if it does.

In seriousness, all of you have a great day off!

I think that's the reason, well explained, nothing else special happening today. I thought that there were 2 Bank Holidays in August though?

I think that's just wishful thinking Gilly . Next Bank Holiday after this one - Christmas . The one before it was Spring Bank at the end of May! Not that I live for Bank Holidays or anything!

Didn't we have one earlier in the month? I'm useless at dates so I may be wrong (see, memory of a goldfish!)

It's been sunny all day here so far, not that it makes much difference to me as I'm having a veg out day! I usually do subcontract work on my time off, but I got it all done yesterday and I'm refusing any more for the next few months - seriously need my weekends back again! I started it before I got the kittens so it was fine as I had lots of time, but I think we all know how difficult it is to get anything done when you have 2 four months old kittens running about, standing on keyboards, eating files, chewing paper! So, my time off is now dedicated to my toads!

I'm intrigued by comfort pearls, I'll have to buy some. I usually use lenor blue, and I looooove the smell of it on fresh laundered sheets

Yay! The weather cleared up nicely for me! It was glorious this afternoon!

I got to the garden centre and bought some pots and plants and managed to get most of what I wanted done! (except, I ran out of compost! )

I'll have to take some pictures of my garden soon to show you all!

I hope everyone else is still enjoying their Bank Holiday!

Sar, sounds like you had a lovely day! Can't wait to see your garden piccas I did some gardeny things too.... well from about 1pm to 5pm I just lay on the lounger in the sun/shade and just chilled and snoozed Then I got woken up by Guinness and Tibby growling and hissing at each other

So, I helped my neighbour chop down this big tree/bush thing she has on her side of the garden, we weeded the old ladys garden next door, swept up then watered all 3 gardens. I came in about 30 mins ago and had a nice shower and now I am sitting here in my shorts and t shirt with a nice glass of water!

It's been a lovely day AND I have no work tomorrow to get all grumpy about!

*sigh*

Christmas seems a long way away ... but really, it's not If I remember correctly, the Christmas holidays will be longer again this year as Christmas day falls on the weekend so we all get a lovely long weekend!
