This guy had a pretty big part in my summer. I was lucky enough to get to see him quite regularly and we got up to some pretty fun things, as well as taking lots of selfies and eating lots of food!
I was lucky enough to get a uni funded trip to Cyprus with my Future Leaders group, most of who I'd hardly spoken to. We bonded as a group and I had the best time! I know I've made some really good friends through our trip. We did have to spend 4 days in Uni making a presentation, but the rest of our time was spent swimming, sunbathing and drinking cocktails and attempting karaoke!
I spent some time at Josh's house in Buxton which is in the Peak District. It was really such a beautiful place to visit and we went on some really nice walks with his dog Sully who I fell in love with and didn't want to say goodbye to, look how cute and fluffy he is! We also spent a day in Alton Towers, which was so much fun as we both love roller coasters. I hadn't been in a while so finally got to try out some of the new rides.
Rather than go abroad for a holiday Josh and I decided to visit a few places in the UK as our little break. We spent some time in Buxton and visited Wales which I wrote a post about that you can read here. I really loved Wales and want to go back and be shown around by my best friend who is from the area.
We also managed to fit in a few days in York, which is an absolutely beautiful city, so much to do and see. We really enjoyed our few days here and you can read all about our trip here.
It's very rare that all of us girls get to be together all at once, with us all living in different places and doing different things it can be hard to organise ourselves, but to celebrate us all turning 21 this year we decided to have a group night out in London. We had the best time just being together chatting, dancing and getting a bit drunk. One of those nights where you realise how much you love your friends. Even though I don't get to see them as often as I'd like our friendship is still really strong and theres a lot of love between us all. I'm so proud of all of them and how well we're all doing!
Probably one of the highlights of being home was being able to spend lots of time with my baby girl. Tilly is getting pretty old so every time I have to leave for Uni it gets a bit harder. She spends most of her time sleeping, so I like to spoil her and let her on my bed. The first photo was from a scorching day when she got a bit hot so I put my fan on her to cool down. The second one is one of my favourites, my brother is giving her a lick of a straw from a starbucks!
Theres obviously a lot of other things I got up to this summer that weren't worthy of a picture. Unfortunately I didn't get to spend much time with my best friend as she's living in Portsmouth and neither of us had the time or money to be able to visit each other. Im hoping to be able to see her some point this term and I'd love it if she could come visit.
Overall I had a pretty great Summer, I think you know you're getting older when you don't spend all Summer with your friends, in fact this year I didn't get to see a lot of my friends for various reasons. I hope everyone had a lovely Summer, I'd love to hear about any fun things you got up to!
