Banking on a Bank Holiday

Today is Monday, 2nd May 2016.

It’s the May Day Bank Holiday in the UK.

The British weather has done the usual May Bank Holiday trick of giving us four seasons in one day.

We’ve had sun, gales, rain, hail, and sleet.

All plans I had for taking one of the motorbikes out for a trip around the lovely British countryside have been abandoned.

The kitties have enjoyed a day of napping in front of a roaring log burner.

I too have spent much of the day in front of the roaring log burner, but I have been more productive than the snoozing kitties.

I have been working remotely on to the infrastructure in our datacentre; building an enhanced layer of technical and system monitoring for our private cloud hosting servers.

And then I wrote the ‘How does your private hosting work?’ page.

Then I did some online banking.

As I moved money between my savings accounts and current accounts, and paid a bill, I couldn’t help thinking how easily my bank’s mobile app has made my life.

I wish I could say the same about the British weather.
