I've been too brain-dead, tired and been enjoying the sun too much to be posting regularly - my apologies.
I love this hot weather, hope it will last for many more months. I can't believe people are complaining about the heat when it's rare for us to have a summer like this - it would be nice to spend most of my time in my bikini!
Am looking forward to my long-delayed holiday in Oct/Nov - I so need a break from work. The new job is really good but there's only so much my head and my brain will take without a good rest.
On Saturday, I had a little nice diversion - went out with the girls for my belated birthday celebration (seeing as I was in Sweden on the actual day).
As predicted it was a lovely scorching day - we met up at 2pm ish in the afternoon and spent a few hours bronzing outside Tiger Tiger, supping white wine and people watching. I was smothered in my factor 20 suncream - a couple of the girls who are typical 'English Roses' and very pale had no protection so were rather pink after a while - ouch!
It was the usual girlie gang only this time, glamorous C was there (the only sober one cos she was driving) and also one of A's colleagues who's a lesbian - never met her before but it was great cos I was able to talk football with someone that day/night and not get glazed vacant looks! :)
We stopped off at a couple of pubs before we went to La Vina for some tapas - I can't remember which pubs we went to as all I recall was that I was wearing new high heeled sandals and I kept thinking I was going to fall over! I also don't recall eating anything - too much sun and wine!
We ended up at The Hog's Head and some other place afterwards - it was all a bit of a happy blur to me.
On Sunday, sunbathed in the garden for a few hours with a hangover, before me and the bf had a mini-BBQ.
Love the British summer!
