Hello chaps and chapesses!
I know it’s not quite boots-and-hats-and-scarves-and-hot-chocolate weather yet, but once we get into September, I feel like summer has ended. It’s probably the hangover from years spent in education, where the end of August means the end of the summer holidays and the start of a brand new academic year.
Anyway, the point I’m getting to is that as we’re now (in my head, at least) at the end of summer, I thought it would be a good time to look back at some of my summer highlights.
I completed my first ever half marathon in Chester, on what turned out to be the hottest day of the year so far.
I wanted to wear that medal for days afterwards. It’s now hanging on my mirror.
I spent the bank holidays getting a bit tiddly with friends – once in Shropshire and once in Aberdeen.
I spent my birthday swinging through the trees at GoApe.
I took a picture of my newly-27-year-old face.
I chuckled at Graeme and Toby messing around in the garden.
I looked Liam Gallagher up Snowdon.
I went on a few picnics, and pulled silly faces with Graeme.
I went on an evening picnic in Ellesmere, and at the Horseshoe Falls in Llangollen.
I baked my first ever Swiss roll.
I got my first ever loom band.
I went to bingo night with the girls.
I explored Antony Gormley’s Another Place on Crosby Beach.
What did you get up to this summer?
