Whizzing Around

Monday, 2 September 2019

I decided to take a month off from blogging, thinking it would give me the opportunity to find my feet, create a lot of content and find the time to plan ahead. This is the first time I am writing anything - a whole month later! It's not that I haven't wanted to, I've just been so busy.

We have just had a bank holiday here in the UK, a long weekend that marks the end of summer (think Labor Day in the US). This bank holiday, I whizzed around the country.

My weekend started with the slow train out of London. I don't think I'll ever tire of leaving the city behind and heading into the countryside. It was straight up to Manchester to visit one of my best friends, Hannah. We had a hot date - at Bongo's Bingo. I have been to Bongo's Bingo about five times in Manchester and it's still great fun. As the name would suggest, it's a game of bingo played for a range of stellar prizes including a box of Coco Pops to a bouncy castle to £750. There is a DJ and lots of dancing to get involved in, for instance when 'three' is called you have to shout 'tree' in an Irish accent and then Westlife/B*witched comes on and you have to dance. If you think it sounds like a boozy affair, you'd be right!
The next morning I whizzed down to Shropshire for a party. It was a summer ball - after which we would all be camping. We arrived at 10pm  (somehow managed to put our tents up) and then rushed to party. We drank, went on rides (big mistake!) and danced the night away. We stumbled back to our tents at 3.30am - not necessarily from drink but more so that we couldn't see where the guy ropes were! - and tried to fall asleep as the party carried on outside. 
We were up early the next morning with the promise of bacon sandwiches. I'm sure there were a few sore heads, but views like this surely helped.

I spent a few hours at home before heading up to Yorkshire to visit family. The weather in England has been so gorgeous this month that we were able to enjoy the balmy evening, sipping rose. The purpose of our visit to Yorkshire was to see my Nanny. She is a little (literally - about 4ft 5) ray of sunshine.
I managed to nip over to Cheshire the next day to visit my other grandparents. My Grandad is so cute - spot the sandwich he hid to take home for his tea!

So...it's been a busy few weeks, but I'm excited to get back to blogging. I've got some trips lined up over the next couple of months that I can't wait to share - including one to a country I've never been to before! What have you been up to this summer?
