Its a Tuesday morning and I am sat at my desk looking out into the rainy street. How was it Summer 2 weeks ago? Through the heatwave I went to London for the day with my best friend Katie, as I had a placement interview with Jane Carr (which I got wooo!) The next day, Katie, Ellie and I sat at the beach in the evening and watch the sunset. It was so beautiful and as you can see it was the perfect golden hour.
These photos were taken on my Olympus Pen camera which I haven’t got out in a while, but after taking such stunning photographs I am definitely going to be taking it out more.
Tomorrow Katie and I have to get up at 4:00AM to work a full day at Cheltenham Ladies Day. I am half excited, half pooing myself as I know the people there will be big spenders and put a lot of pressure on us behind the bar. Although I am worried, the money I earn just from the one day will pay for my whole birthday weekend!! On Monday I am turning 21 – so old. I can not believe how quickly this has come around. I have got a full weekend of fun planned, but before then I have a big deadline on Friday. So a very stressful week for me, considering I have no motivation to do anything due to my excitement!!
Sunday 24th July
We woke up extremely early (4:00AM) to make our way to Bristol airport, where my family and I flew Lisbon, Portugal. Our villa is in North Lisbon, in a place called Foz do Arelho. We are surrounded by pretty houses, a unique beach and lots of farming. My parents really don’t like staying in places filled with tourists, as they have travelled a lot in their lives.
When we first got it here it was not what my sister, brother and I expected. The weather was not nice at all and every restaurant has fish based food as this is the fishing capital of Portugal.
Monday 25th June
After having a good night sleep we felt a lot better. I only had 7 hours sleep in 3 days, so my mood was getting worse and worse, but the next day we woke up and travelled to a different beach. It was called Peniche and the sun finally came out!! It came out so much to the point we all came home with the weirdest patches of burnt skin.
That evening Portugal were playing football, so we travelled down to the beach next to us to grab some dinner and watch it on the TV.
Instead we ended up in a beautiful Hawaiian themed restaurant called Ala Norte and drank our body weight in Pina Coladas. The sun was finally out in Foz do Arelho so we had an amazing view looking over the sea.
