Yesterday, Bank Holiday Monday, Luke and I took a trip to visit his family in Potters Bar near London and went with them to an alternative race day. Neither of us had any idea what to expect, but we knew that there would be camel racing! Despite the wind, it was a really lovely day out; we took a picnic (although there were multiple hot food stands and a licensed bar as well), watched the racing and enjoyed the  funfair rides (I was also very excited by the amount of dogs brought along by other visitors). There was camel, pony…

Although I’m not usually a fan of busy places, I…

Life has been so super manic lately as I’ve been right in the middle of my first year university exams, but I am finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel and this time tomorrow I will have finished first year! So, as I have mostly been a revising hermit these last two weeks or so, I thought I would update you on my six most recent instagram posts. This is a quick selfie that I took whilst we were at Colchester Zoo in April for my birthday, it was such a lovely day and I wanted to take advantage…
