Bank holiday Monday

Good morning everyone ,When I got up an hour and a half ago it was really nice the sun was shining ...the birds singing ,now it has clouded over I do hope that doesnt mean we are going to have more rain.......Donna made this lovely graphic ,the only thing is where is Donna?I havent heard from her for a few days ,has anyone else ? Maybe the beautiful gypsy lady could look into her crystal ball and find her for me.I hope you are well Donna ...........Busy day yesterday Mark and his wife Chrissy came over to see us,after they had gone we went to Peterborough to say goodbye to Kate and Martin ,Mat and Sam,before they go on holiday Stuart(my other daughters  son) and his fiance' Vicki,came around Stuart and Vicki are also going on holiday,with Kate and Martin ,Stuart gave me two lovely bunches of carnations.He is such a thoughtful boy/man ,and will be twentyone in June...."Now you've done it Stu ",says Martin you'll be on the journal now....of course they are all excited to be flying off to Spain and some sunshine early Tuesday morning ,Maurice had bought a rucksack for Mat and Sam which have a seat attached very neat idea,they were delighted ,can be used for fishing too . When we left Kates we called round to see Mike, Maurices brother and his wife Jackie,who made us very welcome ,and we caught up on all the family news ...........We watched the Triangle ,last night with Sam Neil I'm afraid I fell asleep near the end ,but since we'd taped it can catch up later ....The plan today ,if it stays fine is to go to Dyers garden centre and have another look at the water features then ,again only if its fine to go on to St Ives(Cambs) market...they have a huge one right through the town ,that is held every bank holiday.......The sun is still not very bright in fact its quite dull ,but no rain! so fingers crossed I hope every one has

    a good bank holiday Monday .... PS its  spitting with rain !!

Hi Jan, Donna's gone camping but she'll be back late today, I miss seeing her entries too! You were a busy little bee yesterday weren't you, it's nice to catch up with family, especially as they're off to sunnier climes! Hope they enjoy it. Sam Neill, rhat's who it is, Andy was watching The Triangle on saturday night and said the fella was Harrison Ford, I said it wasn't but couldn't remember his name. It's all come back to me now...Jurassic Park!! Have a lovely day today, I hope the rain leaves off for you! Jeannette xx

Have a lovely day.

I've just sent Mike off to work in Gloucester today, he won't be back until tonight. My son is calling in for a meal on his way from London to Glasgow. I sometimes think I run an hotel!

It's raining now. Oh well, no gardening today then, how upset am I? ;O)  I watched Triangle last night but was a little confused having missed the first episode. Not sure whether to bother with the last one now. Don't forget paul and Debbie are on tonight.

You've got a lovely family, you seem really close, you can't buy that.  There's no rain here yet and there's a big Steam Rally going on so fingers crossed that the weather stays fine for us all.  Have a lovely day whatever you do xx

I'll settle for it being warm enough to put the heating off............

Rained here big time a while ago, but got brilliant sunshine now! Enjoy your day, love Joan

Hope you didn't get caught in the rain Jan - it bucketed down here.  I think you're brave tackling the St Ives Market - nowhere to park for a start and it's so-oo big - Only went once - that was enough!  Having trouble with my eyes at the moment - might be related to hayfever, but driving me up the wall - so not been on the pooter very much - so lots to catch up on but a bit at a time :-/

You did have a busy day yesterday and sound as you are going to be busy again today, as I always say to Stuart we did not retire to sit in tne house.  Re Donna, she is away camping.  Have a great day Love Joan.

msecz said...

hope the weather holds up and you get to go to the market etc. sounds like a nice time. Its going to be too hot and humid again today for me but since we are retired we can wait because we have cooler days coming. Sandra

mckaygillian said...

Yuck...hope the rain goes off again so you get to the market!!  At the moment it's sunny here but there's some dodgy looking clouds blowing over!  Enjoy the rest of the holiday!

I wish you could send us some of the rain.  Living in the desert does have advantages, but gosh!! I miss the rain!

Happy Bank Holiday Monday.  I noticed that on my calendar last night.  So I take it all the bankers in the U.K. are happy for a day off.  Of course since Memorial Day is an official holiday all the bankers in the U.S. are off also.  Do you suppose they are all together somewhere having a huge bankers party ?   No rain here ae yet but also no sun.  Linda in WA

Absolutely poured down here, I don't like to go anywhere on Bank holidays lol, too busy (oh what a grump I am)

labdancer51 said...

Hi Jan,

We`re watching The Triangle but I`ve not seen yesterday`s yet as it`s on tape.  The final episode is tonight so I`ll watch them back to back.  The weather has been sunny and showery all day but we`ve been lucky enough to avoid most of the wet stuff on our travels.  I hope you managed to go into St.Ives and had a nice time there. :o0

Sounds like you've had a great bank holiday weekend.  There's nothing nicer than catching up with family.....that's what I've done this weekend too.  Weather here hasn't been too bad - not too much rain, but still a bit on the chilly side.
Take care,

I enjoyed that Jan! Linda x

Hi Mum, Maurice and all. This is just a quick and my last email before we jet off to the sunny isle of alcudia for our holiday. We are all quite nervous. Stu and Vic are safely tucked up in my living room, the boys have just gone to bed and we have to be up at four. Oh no! Am really looking forward to it now as and as of now, am not nervous about flying yet. Please take care of each other and be happy. Will be in touch. Loook after yourselves and each other. Love you so much. See you in two weeks. he he Kate xxxxxx

siennastarr said...

Love the graphic, Jan!  Wouldn't mind looking like her! lol

Wish I were going on holiday (or vacation, as we in America call it).  And to go to Ireland would be a dream come true!

I hope they have a safe and fun trip!

Have a good holiday, Jan.  It's well into the 90's again here.  I'm melting...lol.  I saw in Donna's journal that she is off on a camping trip this weekend and wouldn't be around until probably sometime tomorrow.  XOXOXO  Chris
