Good Morning Everyone,
Its a dry/grey start here in Brackley this morning.
A quiet day methinks , do some laundry and small shop plus some housework .
Considering this is Whitsun , the actually day is shown on my wall planner as next Wednesday.

Good Morning Mick, Good Morning All.
I have no idea at all when most of these bank holidays are these days.
School breaks seem to be coming at very odd times now.

Morning Mick Resurg and All.

Sunny day in West Sussex. This is the start of our DGSs minding week. Not entirely sure of our plans for today but I know it will be full on.

Have a good Bank Hols folks.

Good morning everyone from a very sunny Essex by the sea. I've been awake since 5.30 unfortunately.
Not much planned for today apart from a walk/ride along the pier. This being a big seaside town it will be very busy everywhere today, especially if the sun continues to shine.
Enjoy Bank Holiday Monday everyone.

Off to Rhodes for son's wedding on 1 June sunshine

Good morning everyone from dry and cloudy Northampton. Looking after dgd today. Hoping the sun will come out and we can spend time at the sand and water area of our local country park.

Good morning Mick and all. It's looking rather bleak and windy in this corner of Cheshire, but the clouds are racing across the sky so it may clear later.

I have a friend visiting today, so think I may take them into Liverpool across the new Mersey crossing.

Enjoy your day everyone.

Good morning everyone from Malaga where we have beautiful sunshine. I can her the parakeets making a racket in the palm trees!

My husband has gone off for his walk. He likes to go early before it gets too hot - the proverbial ‘mad dogs and Englishmen’ is something to avoid.

This afternoon I’m meeting a friend who is over from Wales for wine and tapas.

You’ll have great weather to look forward to DannieRae bet you can’t wait. Those wedding photos will be stunning!

Hope Monday is good to us all, whether we have plans or none. x

Good Morning everyone.
Looking dull and grey here on Severnside.
I’m going to do some sorting out and planting today.

Enjoy your holiday Monday whatever you do 🌷

Good morning from a very windy, overcast NE. It was noisy overnight and wished I had worn my earplugs.
DD gets the actual religious festivals off work and is flying in from Europe on Wednesday.
Supermarket shopping today as DH does not have an appointment.

Good morning from a cloudy Leicestershire. Going to a local fair today to see friends playing in a ukulele band so hope it doesn’t rain!

Have a good day everyone.

Good morning from a bright but overcast Colchester. Quiet day planned after a hectic weekend.

Morning all, cloudy but dry in Torbay, grandchildren went home yesterday so a quiet day today. Doggie walk and gardening.
Hope everyone has a nice Bank Holiday Monday.

kittylester Mon 27-May-19 07:39:44

Morning all from a cloudy and greyish seaside.

Enjoy your day, dragonfly. Whuch Ukekeke band? There seems to have been a rash of them lately.

Enjoy your days everyone.

Good morning.
Quiet bright in Kent but with a thin layer of cloud.
No plans for today, we're not going to attempt the roads so a bit of pottering outdoors and in.
Have a good day.

Good morning from Derbyshire. Looks a bit cold and grey here but still in bed! Managed a bit of gardening with DD2 when the rain stopped yesterday. Will see DD1 and DGS today before heading home to Yorkshire later.
Have a good day everyone.

Morning Mick and all. Nice morning in this part of Kent. My brother and his wife coming for dinner today looking forward to seeing them. He looks a lot like my hubby so the older dog loves him and makes so much fuss of him but gets upset when he goes home. It's heartbreaking . Anyway hope you all have a good day.

Marydoll Mon 27-May-19 08:06:35

Good morning all from a cool Glasgow.

A day in for me today, just taking it easy,.
I am plodding through a very dull detective story set in Florence, but I'm determined to finish it. I have to know who "dunnit"!

DanniRae, what a great place for a wedding. I hope everything goes well.

cornergran Mon 27-May-19 08:13:01

Morning Mick, morning All from a very grey corner of Somerset. Disappointed as the forecast was for sunshine. Very little sleep so a slow start, not sure what the day will bring, nothing too energetic I suspect. Hope Monday is kind to everyone.

Good Morning from a cloudy but still warm Black Country.

Partner will be watching the Villa V Derby match today, in the hope that Villa win and will be promoted!

So I will pop over to Mums and bring her back here for a BBQ this evening.

My friend is coming over sometime today from Stamford (she moved there almost 2 years ago). Sadly she is coming for a funeral tomorrow of a friend of hers. We are putting her up overnight, so she doesn't have so far to travel tomorrow.

Sounds like a busy week ahead for you NanKate

DannieRae we are off to Rhodes on 16th June, we stay in the village of Lindos, which is very popular for weddings. Hope you have a wonderful time.

Have a lovely Bank Holiday everyone

Good morning from a cloudy Northampton.

Not much planned for today, but hope to get the front hedge trimmed and spray the weeds on the driveway. Then will probably toddle up to DS's for a shower.

Hope everyone's day goes well.

Good Morning from a sunny, breezy S Welsh coast.
I awoke at 4.45 for no apparent reason but did eventually go back to sleep.
Our small seaside town will be very busy today, it always is on a Bank Holiday.
DD is going to the Spice Girls concert this evening, and is making a day of it, lunch out with the girls and a mini bus booked.

Have a pleasant day everyone, and Marydoll, a relaxing one.

Good morning to you all, overcast here, and I think the wind is a little chilly, a bit different from yesterday when it was quite balmy. Terrible nights' sleep, and I fee,l dreadful, woke up sobbing at one point, just miss my husband, in the early hours of the night. I am taking it easy today, think I might have been doing too much, so newspaper, crossword, book, cup of tea all ready. Have a good day everyone.

Good morning Michael and all GNs. Grey here in South Yorkshire with rain promised. GS and his Ma and Pa are expected for a roast dinner later, and then he will be staying over. Anything we will do with him tomorrow will be weather dependent but no doubt he will have ideas! Have a safe journey home Alygran. Enjoy the day everyone.

Miserable grey day, with off and on drizzle here in Central Scotland. It is NOT a Bank Holiday in Scotland, so Bairns at school and DDs at work as usual. It is very confusing when all the TV channels keep insisting it IS a Bank Holiday, when here it is not.
