As summer is slowly coming to an end and I am sure autumn is just around the corner. I thought I’d share with you all the 5 things I’ve loved about summer.
With the great British heatwave this year we have been very lucky to have enjoyed lovely warm weather, for once! I know a lot of people were complaining by the end, but c’mon we ALL loved it really 🙂 I know for sure I am one of those people who loved going out for walks in the evenings after work, enjoyed being able to spend time in the garden planting flowers and making use of my new veg patch… it wasn’t as successful as I had hoped but we all have to learn somewhere, right?! Anyway I thought I’d share with you all the 5 things I’ve loved about summer.
5 Things I’ve Loved about Summer
Being able to spend the evenings outside, whether that be in a pub garden, going for country walks in the New Forest or heading down to the beach to watch the sunset. After work I enjoy being able to switch off, and this allows me to do this rather than sit at home watch endless seasons on Netflix or Sky Films.
2. Friends and Family
Spending time with friends and family. Summer is always full of outings and events, mainly due to the lovely weather we have experienced. Numerous BBQ’s, trips to the beach and I even visited our local lido a couple of times this year… which I loved!
I love going to festivals whether it be a small intimate village festival or a full on national festival like Isle of Wight or Reading! This year I attended “Common People” in Southampton and had a blast. Lily Allen was headliner on the Saturday and she was pretty damn good live.
I enjoy nothing more than visiting new places, exploring new country walks in the New Forest and finding nice places to eat and drink. I headed down to Looe, Cornwall for a few days in August and loved it! Who doesn’t love some proper Cornish pasties and Cornish ice cream and cider… Have you ever been to Looe? Or down to the South Coast? If you follow my blog or instagram you’ll know that I love nothing more than going to the beach and the forest 🙂
This summer has definitely been one to remember.. mainly because of all the lovely weather the UK was lucky enough to experience, 7 weeks of sunny weather is so unheard of!! I took advantage of it, especially as I didn’t have a summer holiday abroad planned this year [Buying a house] so it made it feel a bit more like I was on holiday being able to wear dresses and dress up in shorts was lovely.
What have you been up to this summer? Are you sad it’s all coming to an end and autumn is slowly on it’s way or are you looking forward to cosy nights in, wearing jumpers and fluffy socks?
