summer is here?

As you can see I have made some changes to the blog, well changed the whole layout! I feel like something more simple. I actually think I need to declutter everything.

So this weekend has been looovely! HOT HOT HOT. Have spent most of it sunbathing with the family in the garden. We've had lovely curries and BBQs and lots of cider (or vodka in the somones case!) I went shopping for a bit yesterday. Might of spent a lot of money, but I haven't spent a lot of money for ages! From Primark I got a ivory vest top, red and cream stripy shorts and a flowery summer dress. Then I got some shorts for running in, because I am actually going to start tomorrow! And the most awesome shorts ever from topshop.

Yeah they were £28, which is way more than I would normally spend on anything.. especially shorts, but I am actually in love with them. I've worn them all day today and yesterday haha. Best buy this summer I think.

I'm so excited for summer! I have 27 days left at work. 51 days till I go to Kefalonia. 66 days till I go to America. and 111 days till I see Muse! I spent most of last summer working so I am really going to make the most of this one!

So the getting fit and loosing the little bit of weight I've put on this year starts tomorrow. I'm going to start running, and just eating less junk. Hopefully now the weathers nicer and works less stressful I should stop eating so much crap. Wish me luck?! I also plan to get more into the habbit of blogging again, so please keep checking up on me!

i've been bitten by the marathon bug.

So I completed my first (not so power walking) walking marathon at the weekend. I spent a lot of time waiting around for other team members and flipping toilet queues, so it took us 9 hours. It was possibly the hardest thing I have ever had to do. It's like physically and mentally draining, and very emotional. The walk was raising money for breast cancer research, which is an amazing cause. I'm so proud that I've done it and raised over £100. I will post pictures of the bra (which I decorated to wear for the walk) and my medal.
As of next week I'm going to start running to train for a running half marathon and I'm planning on doing the moonwalk again next year! Also I really need to lose weight before university as all the girls on my course are blatently going to be tiny! I'm currently failing at cutting out unhealthy crap and fizzy drinks. NEED DIET INSPIRATION PLEASE!
The weathers finally getting nice. The boy and I are planning a trip to the beach at the weekend maybe. A lovely walk and pub lunch would be good I think. Also I'm thinking of all the things I want to do with my long free summer, well apart from the holidays. I want a few beach days, a trip to the science and natural history museum, visit some family and go to london lots. I expect lots of summery garden parties with pimms will happen :)

the most relaxing weekend :)

I've had such a lovely weekend doing pretty much nothing with a rather lovely person. We stayed up late talking and listening to music, then didn't get up till the afternoon.
Now I need sleep, early shift tomorrow. I will blog more soon, I promise.
Sweet dreams
