Splashing around


This weekend....

Sun! Sun! SUN!! // Splashing in my paddling pool... best £2.95 I've ever spent // Red toenails // Barbecues x2 - chicken, marinated pork steaks, homemade burgers, peppers, cucumber, feta cheese <3 // Sunbathing // Sunburn // Sunstroke // Garden appreciating // Photograph taking // Homemade lime iced tea // Ice cold water // Barbecued pineapple with lime juice squeezed over it (try it... NOW!) // Doing absolutely nothing that I needed to do and revelling in it // A tiny pang of longing for the Summer of 2008 // Lots and lots and lots of sleep...

I don't want to be in work right now.


How was your weekend, my loves?

You have a paddling pool??? Oh, that takes me back. Just wish I had a back garden to put one in.

My weekend was lovely - lots of relaxation, sunbathing, wine and topped off with Alicia Keys in concert last night. Nice.

I just read Paula's post as reading topless sunbathing. Oops

Mine was cider in the park and a party at a pals. Lovely fun.

I'm falling in love with Manchester even more in this gorgeous weather. I wish it would stay!

I've posted about what happened with Luscious Luke by the way!!

Jon - You won't regret it, I promise!

Smidge - That's because you're a perv :p

Oh I'd love a paddling pool! I remember the one we used to have, I loved it as a kid. I had a nice weekend despite working on Saturday, I made up for it on Sunday though by lazing in the sun all day!

love your pics, wish I could take good ones like that, recently I've lost my photo mojo..anyway this weekend I have mostly been bringing a bit of corfu to my horrid garden in manchester lol. I can't go on holiday but I thought I could a bring a bit of holiday to me, so I white washed some walls, browned off my wood fences and added some green plants, I also cleaned up my decking. Hello Corfu!...but this morning alas goodbye sun :(
