Friends, I cannot believe it but I’m more than a month into my summer! How crazy is that!? Summer is 105% my favourite season of the year, and being off school for so long this year makes it even better! I’ve been having so much fun not having to do anything for school, so how could I not do a post about what I’ve been up to and what my upcoming plans are!?
Since school finished I’ve honestly just been having so much fun relaxing! I haven’t seen my friends every day and I haven’t done any massive day trips or anything, but it’s been so fun to not have to worry about school and to be able to do whatever I want whenever I want!
The weather at the moment isn’t great, it’s kind of grey and wet… it’s rained quite a bit this week already which hasn’t been great, but hopefully the sun will come back soon. The first couple of weeks of summer were so glorious, the skies were blue every single day and the sun was so big and warm!
I like to think I make the most of the ‘heatwave’ before the weather returned to the typical British summer weather… I had a bunch of picnics with my friends, I went on walks and days out, I did lots of baking and ate lots of breakfasts outside. One of my favourite days was a trip to London with my family to visit a new Vincent Van Gough exhibition that is there temporarily… the main part of the exhibition was a presentation set to music of his paintings in chronological order projected onto massive screens all the way around the room we were it. Which ever way you turned you could see different parts of the painting which was very cool!
Another highlight has been spending time with my friends. A couple of weeks ago we threw a surprise picnic for another friend for her birthday and we themed it pink (her favourite colour)!! We made a pink cake and had pink fruit, pink (or sort of red) veg, pink crisps, pink sweets, pink cookies, pink muffins and everything else pink! It was so much fun!
My family and I are hoping we’ll be able to go visit our family in Michigan in about four weeks’ time, so that is the next big thing I’m looking forward to. Before then, however, I’m spending the night away with my grandma, throwing a dip night with my friends, and planning days out, sleepovers and movies nights with other friends too!
I could tell you all about the things I’ve been up to recently, but I thought it would be way less boring if I added some pictures instead… here you have it, friends, a (mini) photo dump of what I’ve been doing recently!
That’s all for now, sweet friends, but tell me, what have you been up to recently? What have your favourite summer things been so far? I love love love chatting with you in the comments!
