What's the weather allowing YOU to do this weekend?

It's a given; we all look forward to the weekend, whether it's to spend time with family, see friends or do those odd jobs around the home and garden. But one thing's for sure, weekends never seem to last long enough!


And the British Summer weather can make or break Saturday and Sunday fun. Glorious sunshine one minute, heavy showers the next. So here's a list of activities that'll hopefully cover most eventualities this weekend, whilst letting you make the most of your two-day break.

Should the weather be fine and dry...

Have a BBQ? The sizzle and smell of delicious grub cooking on the BBQ is enough to make anyone's taste buds water, especially if it's accompanied with a glass of wine or crisp refreshing beer. If you fancy entertaining a crowd, then a big gas barby is a must. Take a look at the Argos Summer Clearance for a BBQ bargain or why not try Very for a range of BBQs and outdoor heating.

Prepare to do some gardening? Cutting lawns, digging up weeds, putting in new plants. It can be tough work keeping shrubberies ship-shape and perfect. Save the trip to a garden centre and see what the Garden Centre Online has to offer, plus earn 8% cashback and get 10% off everything with our code. All delivered to your front door too.

Play some outdoor games? Kids love to get outside when it's sunny (just make sure they top up on the sun tan cream). Wilkinson offers a wide variety of games and activities, and not just for kids. From paddling pools to giant trampolines, you're bound to find something that will keep everyone entertained for hours.

Do some odd jobs? Whether these are tasks around the house or maybe cleaning the car, the weekend allows you the time to get them done. Did you know the likes of Halfords, Robert Dyas and JML are on Top CashBack? That means you can save time and money by buying the stuff you need to complete your jobs online.

Or if the weather turns nasty...

Do some DIY? There's always a shelf that needs putting up or flat pack furniture that needs assembling. But isn't it always the way, that you never have the right tools for the job? Simply jump online and order what you need from someone like B&Q, Homebase or Wickes via TopCashBack. Plus earn yourself some handy cashback too.

Interior decorating? Are you in the process of doing up the bedroom, lounge or bathroom? Or thinking about it? Check out Laura Ashley for some inspiration (and cashback), or maybe Next. You can currently get up to 50% off home and furniture in the Laura Ashley sale.

Get into a book or magazines? If relaxing with a good book is your kind of weekend, be sure to take a peek at what The Book People has to offer. Especially as there's FREE delivery when you spend £25, in addition to 3% cashback.

22 Jul 11 - 22:05Gonna finish off training my strawberry runners, play with the kids (aged 5, 4 & 2), cut the lawn (front & Back), chainsaw the rest of the woodpile, dig out the first lot of spuds, pick some green beans & Courgettes, thin out the carrots, radish and beetroot and cut a load of flowers for indoors and make a jelly for the kids to eat on Sunday. After that lot on Saturday i'll be too knackered to do anything on Sunday so it'll be a day of sport on BBC1 and ITV4, loadsa motor racing, touring cars and grand prix (i think). We're gonna have an indoor bbq for lunch, nice and easy, just cook it all in the oven. No messing about with charcoal and petrol, just press the button marked 200c
