Peaking around

I had a rather lovely jam-packed weekend!

On Sunday me, Sam, Lis & Raoul headed up a few mountains in the peaks I enjoyed the sitting around and taking in the epic view - it's so peaceful and serene that high up. But I didn't enjoy the uphill climbs that were involved to get there :( Although, it did make me realise how incredibly unfit I've become which worried me a little! so as of Monday I've started to walk the 2 mile's home from work and feel so much better for it! I hope I can keep it up though. Sunday was rounded off with lots of wine in the pub and a trip to the graveyard at night which was rather creeeepy!

We decided to go to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park on Monday (yey for 3 day weekends) defiantly choose the best day for it weather wise as it felt like a summers day!We had a fun day roaming around the park taking silly pictures and soaking up the sunshine.

Uni bar & relaxing times

The last two weeks have yet again flown by! Jesus, a little bit scary really. I won't complain as it's pay day in a week :) I feel like my budget has gone out of the window this month so next month i need to be really tight tight as Sam is when it comes to spending ;)

Last weekend I was back in Stafford - It didn't start amazingly well after finding out my Grandma was in hospital, but apart from that it was lovely. Me and the parental's spent most of Saturday in the pub drinking and eating which was fun -It was nice 'catching up' and just spending some time with them. Me, Sez and Lis headed out to the uni bar on the night which was fun and made a change from the usual pubs in town. Although we  found it to be not as good as it used to be and we felt really old surrounded by 18 year olds - but hey ho.

This weekend has been a relaxing one - nothing vaguely interesting has happened. We are going to head out for lunch at La Tasca (nom) and then probably bum around some more! I'm quite looking forward to next weekend though as Lis is up visiting and I have a three day weekend eeee fun times!

On another note we have decided unless the line up is amazing we may give Leeds a miss as we just can't find  enough people to join us and I think It just wouldn't be the same just the two of us going even though am sure we would have a laugh.

Brighton Beach and delicious treats

I feel like I am neglecting this blog a little at the moment ! But I can never be bothered to sit and write in it after work as too much effort is involved.I think from now on I'm going to post an entry every Sunday and just ramble on about the past weeks happenings.

This week has been pretty eventful compared to some - It's been a really enjoyable one. I feel like I've settled in at work finally and feel comfortable with everyone I work with now so it's not so much of a chore any more - I feel like I don't need to make as much effort which is always good!

On Tuesday it was Amy's birthday so we celebrated with a home cooked roast and a few drinks at the local which was nice. On Thursday Sam had booked a day off work so he met me for lunch in town which made the day more bearable. In the eve me and Sam headed to a mini festival at the Harley to see Chickenhawk but to Sam's disappointment they pulled out last minuet due to illness so we just left. Yesterday was Amy's birthday tea party which involved  a buffet of delicious treats and about 5 bottles of wine were consumed before we headed out to Brighton beach at the academy.

I am looking forward to next weekend already and it's only Sunday evening! I will be heading back home which I haven't done so for a month! although it doesn't feel that long as it's flown by again. I'll get to see the best friends, family and enjoy some home cooked food.

Also I've decided that I want to go to leeds festival this year - so I need to save the pennies for that and Paris which hasn't gone well so far but oh well.
