The English Bank Holiday is characterised by rain and by sitting in long queues of traffic try to get to or from some event or location.
This Bank Holiday strayed from the norm.
Firstly, the weather was lovely, sunny, and warm. This always brings out the song in one's heart and makes the spirit soar.
Secondly, other than a quick trip in the morning to the local tip to dispose of old and decaying garden furniture, we stayed firmly at home. (Having said that, that is our normal plan for Bank Holidays). The afternoon was spent enjoying the sun in the back garden.
