Summer. Yey.

So, it is officially summer… We have had a few days of sunshine and heat which has been fantastic,  even as I type, I am laying in the garden getting my vitamin D!
This bout of good weather certainly makes for happier people. Sadly due to my shifts, when the weather is beautiful and I am off work I have no one to play with. Thankfully, Jaimie is on felxi time and he’s normally home at 3:30pm, this avo we have done a spot of shopping, are now relaxing on the grass and I have a glass of coconut rum & coke in hand with a bottle of Asti (my new fave drink) in the fridge for later… Mum and Dad will be popping along for a few glasses and a ‘chin wag’.

The best things about summer are the clothes, I can wear summer dresses, skirts, beautiful shoes and sometimes I don’t even wear a jacket(!) and also the FOOD, bbqs and a lot of salads are consumed (however, tonight will be steak) and with that, comes alfresco dining.

I’m hoping to get a lot of done in the summer months, including the garden, the house, mini trips and adventures with my man, family and best buddies! I just hope I can get some weekends off…

I’m Back!

After over a month of not bothering to blog, tonight is the night that I make an appearance! It was quite nice to have the break, get on with things and not having to worry about typing up a post every other night.

So what have I been doing for the past month I hear you ask…? No… Oh.

I’ve been on a mini break to the Cairngorms for Jaimie’s 29th were we spent everyday visiting distilleries, although we did manage to fit in a reindeer feeding sesh, which was amazing! Spent plenty of time in the sun whether it be at a beach or just sunbathing in the back garden, BBQ’s with my best chums, going out for dinner with the family and extended family, bike rides, shopping, dying my hair many colours, antique shopping, drinking pinas coldadas, driving a car, faking it, bird watching, booking holiday’s, Castle visits, boat trips, visiting museums & Jubilee fun.

I think that’s it…!

I will now bore you with some pictures of my last month.

I’m hoping that I will keep this more regular, not daily but definitely not monthly.

Annual 80’s BBQ.

Last Saturday was Jamie and Ali’s annual 80’s BBQ, which is held at Jamie’s maw and paws house.  Every year the boys spends copious amounts of money on the finest foods and alcoholic beverages, the guests will bring more booze and maybe some nibbles.  This year was no different, no expenses spared, the BBQ was in full swing when we arrived and Jamie’s dad was cooking the food, 80’s music was blasting, there was face painting and the trampoline and hot tub were out(!).  This is the second year that the hot tub has been used and the second time I forgot to bring a swimming costume, however this year that didn’t bother me as I got in fully clothed!  It was a fabby night and I got super drunk, I sadly had to leave at 10:30pm as I was working at 9am the next day. I’m already looking forward to next year!

BBQ.

On Saturday my friend Lisa decided to have a BBQ at her house as her family are away in The Big Apple, she was up into the wee small hours cutting up veg, making puddings and cleaning her house for our arrival.  Luckily the weather wasn’t too bad and we sat out in her back garden and munched on the piles upon piles of food!  Everyone seemed to have a good time (even though some peeps fell asleep!), but sadly me and Jaimie didn’t stay that late as I had to get up for work the next again day.
