More on the tourist theme! Today we checked out of our hotel and went for a meander around the V&A. After that we headed over to The Sea Life Centre! We didn’t queue at all and the entire place was so quiet – we’ve been very lucky on the whole for queues. We saw someContinue reading “16/09/21 – Aquarium trip!”
Today we went to the Natural History Museum, The London Eye AND rode around on Santander Cycles! Just the most touristy day and it was so much fun with Nic. We’re having a lush time “away”!
I went into the office today at lunchtime to reunite with a colleague who’s been away for two weeks. A quick handover and now it’s my time to relax! We’re not going away, but I do have a week off work – woo hoo! It’s time to really focus on relaxing.
Albeit three days later than planned, I have finally made it back to Cardiff after waking up this morning feeling so much better than the entirety of last week. Luckily the drive was easy breezy and now I get to hang out with my mum, sister and her kids for the long weekend. Lovely stuff!
For the next three days I’m away on a work retreat to plan projects for the rest of the year. So far it’s been a lot of work chat, but a lot of fun too! I’m one of the first ones off to bed as I’m determined to get up tomorrow to go running atContinue reading “16/08/21 – Day 1 of work retreat!”
We went on a little day trip today to St Ives to chance that sunshine! It was mostly successful apart from a brief shower. I did manage to get in a decent swim though which I’m very happy about! And just look at the glorious views we had walking into town.
Waking up to this view can only set you up for a good day! Finally some sun and blue skies after days of rain… We’ve decided to stay an extra day at the hotel, and with all the rain last night I think we’ve made the right choice!
Absolutely gorgeous sunset this evening. Nic and I had a drink whilst watching it go down in the chilly wind. We’re hoping for some happy Shepard’s tomorrow as the rain has been a bit relentless these last few days! Fingers crossed for us please!
That’s it, we’re officially on our holiday! The tent is all set up and the family is all here. And it’s a wonderful first day ending with a sunset walk on the beach.
The time has come to sadly leave the beach! After one last dinner of burgers on the beach Nic and I jumped in the car to head back to London. We’ve had a truly fantastic week and I’m already excited to come back and visit our friends when they’re also in their flat!
