Yesterday was the first day of the summer holiday, and it couldn’t have come soon enough! It has timed itself perfectly with real summer weather too! Finally, hot and sunny weather instead of constant rain! This makes me very happy!
I’ve been pretty busy the past few weeks but I’ve forgotten my camera every. single. time that I’ve done anything!! Last weekend was D’s dad’s birthday so we went to D’s parents’ house for a barbecue. D and his brother were in charge of the cooking and did an excellent job! D’s mum pulled out all of the stops and it was a really good night. Also, a big hello to Matthew if you’re reading!!
On Saturday I went to my first ever baby shower!! It wasn’t a big American-style extravaganza, just a small gathering and a tea party in the garden, but it was such a nice afternoon. It was made even better by the weather and I caught some sun for the first time in a while! I’m so excited, I can’t wait until the arrival of the little one!
Sunday was spent in our local park making the most of the hot weather. One of the things I miss about living in a flat is a garden, but the park is a 5 minute walk away and is actually really nice. It’s always busy when it’s sunny, but there’s always enough space for it not to be overcrowded. I think we’ll be spending a lot of time there this summer if the weather keeps up like this. I’m quite an active person and always want to do something at the weekend, but just laying in the sun doing nothing was perfect.
Next time I post, I’ll definitely include some photos!
In other news, Forever 21 has just opened up here and it’s quite sad how excited I am about this. Hopefully I’ll pick up a few things when I go on Saturday. I’ve noticed that a few things that I like are in the sale so fingers crossed they’ll still be there this weekend!
Also, D and I have started doing the Jillian Michaels’ 30 Day Shred and it’s HARD! We did it last night for the first time and today I feel like I’ve run a marathon. We took some ‘before’ photos so we’ll be able to see how much it has worked in 29 days…
