I have been making the most of my first week of the summer holidays. If you follow me on Instagram you'll have been what I've been up to but if not then I will quickly fill you in.
On Monday my geology pals and went on a little road trip to Portsoy. We did some walking, took loads of photos, had lunch in a lovely little cafe and of course looked at rocks. I had such a good day and arrived home in the evening shattered in the best way possible.
Tuesday was also an adventure. If you saw Thursdays blog post you'll have seen that my flatmate and I went to Stonehaven for the day. Really the blog post says it all but we went for a picnic on the beach, Aunty Bettys for Ice Cream and a walk round the harbour before getting the train back to Aberdeen again.
The rest of the week went at a slower pace - on Wednesday I went to the gym for the first time in years which felt really good. Forever Amber's post about running inspired me and I feel like it might be the thing for me. Very annoyingly I seem to have pulled something in my leg, worse than just normal stiffness after exercising so I spent the rest of the week hobbling around... I bought trainers with proper support though and plan to get back into it as soon as possible. I walked into town to get there trainers on Thursday and made my legs and ankle so sore I spent the rest of the day on the sofa!
Friday was definitely the worst day of the week though - I woke up with a horrible cold that had started out of no where. I couldn't spend the whole day in bed though because Scott had offered to take my clothes back to Montrose so I had to pack. He picked me up in the afternoon, we drove home then went to the pub for a couple of drinks. A few to many probably on top of my cold because I got home much later feeling very sick and falling asleep on my feet.
I woke up feeling much better on Saturday but we still had a pretty lazy day. We walked to Lidl to get food and pretty much just chilled in the flat for the rest of the day. In the evening we watched Planes, Trains and Automobiles which is a classic and very funny film. Sunday was more adventurous because we decided to go to Dundee for lunch and shopping. The food at the DCA was delicious as always and luckily for my bank account I didn't see anything I fancied at the shops.
We got home and the sun was still shining so Scott cut the grass and I sat in the garden, he finished just in time to watch Scotland's sevens game in the cup final which was so exciting. We then went to the pub to play darts (I'm pretty hopeless) and a bit of pool with one of Scott's friends. It was late by the time we got home to cook food and we were both more than ready for bed.
My Instagram is looking very summery at the moment and I'd love it if you showed it some support - @ginger_claire.
This week on G is for Gingers: Giving Hello Fresh a Taste | A Day Trip to Stonehaven.
I've decided to have one more go at selling some of my things on ebay before I taken them to the charity shop. You can see what I'm selling here.
