What a glorious weekend we’ve just had here in the UK! After one of the most depressing and seemingly longest winter in my own living memory, we were blessed with several days of sunshine that coincided perfectly with Bank Holiday – the hottest early May Bank Holiday on record.
The Bloke and I took full advantage of it. Saturday was spent in the city, walking around, doing a bit of shopping, enjoying lunch and general people watching. Sunday was an enormous car boot sale, where we managed to clear a massive amount of clutter and enjoyed meeting lots of new people. Yesterday, The Bloke suddenly developed a rare attack of hayfever, so my friend and I got some food and a blanket together and went for a picnic in the local park. It was lovely – I haven’t had a picnic in several years so it was nice to catch up, eat nice food and walk through the woods afterwards. My laundry was done, I got some much needed exercise, I spent some valuable time outdoors and got out of the rut I often find myself in when working from home.
Surprisingly, I managed to actually make it through three sunny days without burning a single part of my body. In my younger years I was incredibly reckless, often scorching myself so badly that my skin has been left red raw and blistered, but I took extra care with the Factor 50 each day and as a result have only gained a slight glow on my nose and cheeks.
It seemed like the public had a fabulous time too. The fair on our local park was packed with young families, people were having barbeques… everyone is always in a much more pleasant mood whenever the temperature lifts.
It looks like it may continue over the next few days too, it’s Eurovision this weekend and it’s only just over a week until the 4th Annual Bloggers Bash, which I’m ridiculously excited about!
What about you guys? What did you do over the weekend?
