I am working Monday as I always work Mondays whether a national holiday or not. I am off to my daughters tomorrow though to go clothes shopping and then to a 25th wedding anniversary party on Saturday and will travel back Sunday. Have you any exciting plans? Does your country allow you the day off? Please share. Whatever you are doing this weekend, have a really good one. Enjoy. Ellie :D

Actually we won't any weekend holidays in my country as you know in India we can see banks every day but some banks take only Sunday is holiday for them so all banks don't work on Sunday so are you going out side for 25th anniversary?

Hi Rosekitty, It is May Day bank holiday, we get one at the end of the onth too. Enjoy your weekend though. Oh yeah I think a similar statue is a must, if we don't get the real man at least that one won't cause any problems stood in a corner somewhere eh! LOL. Ellie :D

This weekend I am going over tomorrow night to get my little granddaughter. We will have supper and make cupcakes instead of cookies for a change. I also bought a birdhouse for her to paint for daddy for fathers day...then sat. night I got to my brothers in the cities...just a little over an hour from here to have supper and meet my sisters too....we play cards etc. eat and share! Then sunday I'll be back home and do a bunch of cleaning...I have been sorting through things in my house and repainting etc. I just about have the dining room done with the exception of two flower arrangements I am doing for the walls.....hope you have tons of fun!

Hi Jill, It sounds like you have a fun weekend ahead of you too. I am sure your grand daughter will have such fun baking cakes and painting the birdhouse. Enjoy your weekend. Ellie :D

what is the bank holiday in the UK? All holidays here are the same for me because I am disabled and I do not work.

Its May Day Bank Holiday on Monday, as most Bank holidays are Mondays and I work them they don't really affect me either. When I wasn't working the holidays didn't really make a difference either. Ellie :D

Yes it is bank holiday, and no I have no plans just going to go shopping I guess as the supermarkets will be open and then let my kids spend their pocket money. It will be nice not to have to get up too early and then rush about all day going up and down to school!! I like the sound of your day out tomorrow with your daughter sounds like fun!! Hope you have a good day, and an even better one when you go to your party, cannot wait to hear all about it!!

You enjoy your day too of not having to clock watch and do school runs and make sure you get that lay in, maybe get one of them to bring you up a cup of tea in bed, bliss! Thanks I will enjoy shopping with my daughter, she is treating me and then we'll settle little one and maybe watch a dvd and have a good old catch up chat she finished her last exam at uni earlier today so can relax for a while, yippee. I am looking forward to the party also. Thanks. Ellie :D
