1.) Sunshine ☼ - We are in the middle of an absolutely gorgeous heatwave in the UK at the moment. I think we are day 12 in of continuous sunshine (no rain - say waaaaa?!?!) and it is set to last for another month! I have said before that I think England is the most beautiful place in the sunshine, and I'll say it again! I've been enjoying lots of lovely long walks with my dog, Oscar, picnics in the park, and copious amounts of Pimms on sun-filled roof terraces. The sun just makes everyone happier and I think it allows us to make the most of our days. Chilling in a pub garden with my gorgeous gang till 10pm on a work night? What a fabulous idea.
2.) Quality time with my Grandmas - Since arriving back from travelling I've had a few weeks off before started my new job. I've mainly split this between spending time with my friends down in London and my family up Norf'. It has been really lovely spending time with my much missed Grandmas since I got back. I spent today taking my Grandma to her doctor's appointment, making her lunch and watering her vegetable patch whilst she sat in the sun and nattered away to me. These little tasks are so easy for me to do, and I really enjoy doing them, but what makes them even more worth while is knowing how happy it makes my Grandma. I'm trying to make the most of this time, before I jet back to the big smoke and visits won't be as easy. If you are lucky enough to have Grandparents around, take some time out to spend some quality time with them. It doesn't have to be any grand gesture, but I'm sure some company and help round the house would make his/her day!
3.) Pimms - I've already referred to it once in this post, but Pimms is my absolute favourite summer drink. I love putting mint, strawberries, and slices of lemon, orange and cucumber in it to make it even more delish. It always looks so pretty, tastes amazing and is really drinkable. If you are over the legal drinking age, have a Pimms on me, you are sure to love it!
4.) New pyjamas - I did a huge clear out of all my old pjs that were knocking round my airing cupboard last week, most of which had seen better days! So I took it upon myself to head down to Primark this weekend and re-stock - yay! Primark always has a really broad range of the cutest pyjamas. They aren't the best quality but at £4 a pair who can say no to some little frilled shorties covered in ice lollies! One of my favourite little treats is putting fresh, clean sheets on my bed and getting into a new pair of pjs to snuggle up in.
