I haven’t been blogging regularly for a while, so thought I would check in. Despite the lack of ‘summer weather’, the summer has been packed with trips and fun things in the past few weeks….
-Olympics! Yes we got into the Olympic spirit – we saw football at Hampden and then hockey and handball in London. It was great. I know am a London girl at heart, but the transport was excellent, the volunteers friendly and enthusiastic, the general mood of people really chilled… I could go on! There was so much excitement – what was your favourite Olympic moment? We also spent loads of times with our much missed London friends which was great too.
-Weddings! Well, one this month, but it was a good one in Manchester, celebrating the marriage of Sean and Rachel. It was a really really beautiful day with an excellent ceilidh (including an epic ‘Strip the Willow’ which must have kept going for about 15 minutes, at least!) and again, it was a great chance to catch up with some friends.
– Fife Coastal Path! Well, only actually a little bit of coastal path walking has been done in the past few weeks; the one time we did go we were about 1.5 miles in, only for me to remember that I had left the oven on (with food in it!) so we had to rush back! However, we are up to Buckhaven now, so we hopefully will get some more done soon before the end of the year.
-Lots of film watching! Brave, Batman, Spiderman have all been excellent, next on our list is the Bourne Legacy.
-The return of Do-Ho! My friend Donna has moved back to her homeland of Glenrothes, so we’ve been able to hang out which makes us very happy!
I’m sure there’s more stuff that we’ve done, but those have been the highlights. However, in the next few weeks, I’ve got this lovely lot to look forward to!
Fife Baking Club! – Donna and I are attending the first meeting of Fife Baking Club on Thursday – we have to take along a favourite bake we’ve done in the past. Hopefully I will be able to blog about it afterwards (must take my camera!).
Screen Printing Workshop!- after seeing some of my fellow blook clubee’s posts about screen printing, I have booked myself in for a taster session this Saturday! I’m really looking forward to it and am taking along armfuls of fabric and bags to print onto 🙂
Anniversary! Actually I don’t know what’s happening on our 1st wedding anniversary weekend as Mr B is taking full responsibility for it…. watch this space!
Holi-versary! We’re off to Sardinia for some much needed sun in September for almost 2 weeks. Cannot wait!
So there’s what I have/will be up to. What have been your highlights of summer?
