It's still sunny

It's been a while since I took outfit photos in this part of the garden, but I'm glad I did yesterday. I feel like they look kind of dreamy because of the haziness of the light. I couldn't use a couple of the photos though because the the way the sun was shining from behind me made my skirt seem see-through - you could just see the shadow of my legs and I didn't like it, so I picked the ones where it wasn't quite as bad!

I had a lovely delivery of some River Island sale items that I ordered last week, including this top which I love so much (because it's stripey, obviously). Although unfortunately while I was eating my dinner later on I managed to spill some sweet and sour chicken on it. I put it in the wash straight away but it hasn't completely disappeared but hopefully I'll be able to get it out.

Today I feel really poorly, I've got swollen glands and my throat really hurts, and I'll be off work today and tomorrow. I hate feeling ill when it's this sunny outside.

Park Fun

I've had the DVD of the 30 Day Shred for a couple of weeks now. Last week I had a look at it and did a few bits but didn't really start it properly. Partly because of the heatwave we've been having, partly because I was at work a lot, and partly because I just wanted to get a sense of what I was getting myself into. Yesterday, I got up early(ish), and started Level 1 properly. Today, I can barely move without wincing in pain. I hurt in muscles I didn't even know I had. I wanted to do it again today but I physically wouldn't be able to lift the little weights up, and I definitely wouldn't be able to do a push-up. I'm glad I'm not in work today because I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be able to carry any plates. I could barely lift the milk out of the fridge this morning. Oh well. No pain no gain.

Yesterday evening, Jack and I went on a lovely little walk, and I took my camera with me because it hasn't had a good excursion in a while. We ended up in a deserted park, which is always a good thing. Although, you know you're getting old when you start to feel sick on a swing.

Sorry for the photo overload, there were too many that I liked.

Song of the Day: San Francisco by The Mowgli's

Currently reading: The Loop. I'm nearly finished it though.

Pink & Green

Another post! I'm doing well this week.

About a week ago I had a clear-out of my wardrobe and put a lot of stuff in a charity bag. I nearly put this dress in it because I couldn't decide if I loved it or not, but I put it on today and I'm so glad I kept it. It's light and airy and pretty and completely perfect for summer. I also love that it's longer in the back than the front, I think it gives it a hint of elegance. 

I think I need a new hat though; this one's getting a bit tatty.

It's still really hot out, but it's actually a bit cloudy today, which is weird to look at because we've had blue skies for about a week now! Here's hoping it continues. Except when I'm at work where it seems hotter than the sun.

Two things that I think are important

Sometimes it's important to take a moment to stop and enjoy the beauty of your surroundings. And I think I forget to do that a lot.

I also think it's really important to listen to If Ever I Stray by Frank Turner because it's fantastically uplifting and if I'm ever a bit miserable it always makes me feel better. And everyone needs one of those songs.

Summer daze

It's so hot. So, so hot. It should be easy to dress for the heat really because you don't need to wear as much, but I never know what I'm going to be the most comfortable in. This outfit was the second of the day, but is definitely a winner. I'm happy. But too hot. I'm so British.

At least summer is apparently going to be sticking around for a couple of weeks. Even if it rains all through August, we can still say we experienced some sun! 

In other news, I'm sad that Wimbledon's over, but didn't Andy Murray do well? What a trooper. I can't even imagine having that much pressure put on me year after year after year, but he managed to go and win the whole thing. Awesome.
