Weekends by Water

So these last few weekends seem to have had a real water theme!

Last weekend was a true good'un. It was one of my best friends birthdays and to celebrate the big 2-5 he hired a boat to take us down the Thames. Everything was going well, plain sailing if you will, until the big birthday cake reveal. Now with 100 slightly boozy sailors on board it naturally turned into a massive food fight! Flash forward to a boat covered in chocolate, a wedding on board in half an hour and a really really angry boat crew....lesson learned.

Post food fight...

I'm already missing the summer sunshine and so am massively clinging onto whatever I can get. So when I arose from my slumber on Sunday morning (yes alright, late Sunday morning! lets not get picky) Tom and I decided to head on down to Brighton for the afternoon.

A cheeky lunch by the sea front and a few games on the arcade. Now obviously the done thing by the seaside is to tuck into some fish and chips....we had Vietnamese...We did walk to the Brighton pavillion  to be all cultural and that but it costs £10.50 to go inside!! They are having a right laugh. So down to the pier it was, we actually won on the 2p machines a little 'thing' which is now hanging from my rear view mirror (classy gal) and I was so so so close to winning a monkey but I saw signs of a serious gambling addiction occuring so made my move.

We headed down to the beach with a cheeky bag of hot doughnuts, just as I'm about to take my first bite of these mouthwatering goodness seagulls literally attack! One lands on my head, no exaggeration my head! My fine crop of hair with a seagull on top!! Terrifying. Brighton had defeated us at this point, so with our hair ruffled, our pockets empty and our new car accessory we headed back in a torrential downpour. Ahh the British Summer!

This week I'm loving:

 - The return of X factor (shamefully)
 - Pilates! (right fancy it is)
 - Hot doughnuts! (Frowned upon whilst doing Pilates...)
