We are off on Monday, 29th August. It's a public holiday here in the UK - we get the last Monday in August off every year. It's called the 'late summer holiday' and the rationale seems to be that we Brits should take the time to join each other on the roads or at airports in the hope of travelling to somewhere nice and enjoying some much-needed R&R before the summer ends.

The weather is a bit unreliable here in the UK and we tend to joke that public holidays are characterised by inclement conditions. That said, the sun is shining today and the sky is very blue, warm breeze outside. Thoughts are turning to BBQs and beaches, congested motorways...

And after a summer break, we're into the business end of the Formula 1 season with the Belgian Grand Prix on Sunday. Might be worth a look, accompanied by chips, mayo and a glass or two of Chimay.

Rest assured, we'll be back in your Inbox on Tuesday (you can't get rid of us that easily).

Whatever your plans, from all the team here, have a good weekend and be safe.
