And, to add to confusion, my butcher is having Bank Holiday Friday next Monday!

Alima Thu 07-May-20 14:53:40

Ha, can’t fool me! Tomorrow is Friday and my birthday. (No point in bank holidays now).

SueDonim Thu 07-May-20 14:55:02

That’ll be a change! It’s been Thursday all week for me. 🤣

Happy birthday for tomorrow, Alima flowers

A holiday from what though? 🙁

MamaCaz Thu 07-May-20 15:19:23

I didn't realize last weekend wasn't a bank holiday until the Monday teatime, when DS2 put me right.
My calendar must have been printed before the change was announced, because it too thought the bank holiday was last weekend, and doesn't say anything about tomorrow's holiday!

As I am between fortnightly shops right now, that means we have no treats of any description left for this weekend. sad

Yep there was a change in dates after all the calendars and diaries were printed. I got a magnificent diary for a pound instead of £14.99 because of the date error.

I’ll know it’s Bank Holiday when there’s a smell of barbecues in the air.
If it’s dry and sunny DH will light up ours and we’ll follow suit.

Early Happy Birthday Alima 🎈

Oh dear, I thought last weekend was the BH and ordered my prescriptions accordingly. So it is definitely this weekend?

It is to celebrate VE day tomorrow (Friday) and was changed from last Monday.
All very confusing.

Alishka Thu 07-May-20 20:14:43

And Happy Birthday Alima. One way or another it's going to be a memorable onewinkwinecupcakeflowers

Isn’t it Blurday?

Love that, Mamissimo I think "Blurday" should be recognised as an official day.grin

Does anyone still look in their desk diaries to see what plans they have?😄
The only things we now have in it are the times of our shopping deliveries and a reminder to put the bins out.

GabriellaG54 Thu 07-May-20 22:45:19

Ah ha...☺️ That's why I had a Sainsos delivery today and one booked for the 24th.

GabriellaG54 Thu 07-May-20 22:46:21

No. I keep all important info in my head and it's backed up on my phone. 😁
