    Bank Holiday's

    Post by Jan1 on Fri Aug 22 2014, 22:26

    Here in the UK it's 'August Bank Holiday' weekend. True to form the weather forecast is not too good. Although it's still August temperatures are going to be un-seasonable around 5 Celcius, so the lovely weatherman on BBC seemed so pleased to tell us.

    The roads are invariably very busy as I know many families have get-togethers. I must admit Eddie and I try to stay off busy roads but you can't always do this. Perhaps we'll go fishing!

    If you are a Dr Who fan bet you can't wait 'til Saturday Night to see the start of the new series .....one of our sons can't wait and I've strict instructions not to phone at a certain time. I think it's Peter Capaldi in the starring role?

    Anyway whatever your plans have a great weekend - 'talk' soon. sunny 

    All the best Jan

    A whovian ! I've heard of Trekkies for Star Trek fans and the conventions are very very popular too.

    I'm having a hot tub.
    It won't be until we've changed the car, had a new bathroom and found out about new contracts and restructures at work.

    But I'm having a hot tub.

    Andy a small tip. Next time you go into a hot tub, don't share it with a fly blown rabid monkey. Shocked  Laughing 

    Kind regards Eddie

    There are different chemicals you can use.

    I don't like the stinky itchy ones at the gym, but when it's your own you can choose UV light sterilisation, and other much gentler chemicals (including colloidal silver, I think). I'll be going for one of those...

    .......Looking at the diary this evening - I've realised it's only seven weeks 'til the next Bank Holiday.  Smile

    Christmas Day, Boxing Day .........

    Shopping to think about, Cards to write, Grandchildrens Christmas Concerts .....some love it others not so keen. Driving the other day I actually spotted someone had a small tree and door wreath up - now that is early!
