In the past month, I’ve been so busy and I think that’s something that will continue for the next couple of months – I barely have a free weekend and obviously things are so going to get pretty hectic!

The end of July saw my mum’s birthday (22nd), followed by my Nan’s (23rd) and we celebrated both occasions by eating! On the Saturday, we took mum out for afternoon tea (read: Celebrating mum’s birthday with afternoon tea at Haymarket Hotel, London) and on the Sunday, we had lunch at a country pub (read: Sunday lunch for Nan’s birthday at The Old Windmill, South Hanningfield).

Ashley got tickets for the IAAF World Championships at the London Stadium and we were lucky enough to go twice, which was a great experience. Our first session was a Saturday morning (10am-1pm), so we saw a lot of the early round heats including the heptathlon, long jump and shot putt. We returned the following Friday for the evening session (5-10pm) and managed to see a couple of finals as well as medal ceremonies. The steeplechase was interesting (especially when one of the competitors went wrong) and we saw the British hopefuls crash out in the women’s triple jump and men’s hammer throw. Despite the crowds and the amount of walking, especially to and from the station and our seats, I had a really good time!

Last weekend, we spent the Saturday with Ash’s family and then on the Sunday came back to Essex as my mum was back from her holiday. En route from Dunstable to Brentwood, we stopped off at Epping Forest for a leisurely walk. I can’t remember the last time I went there, but it must have been for a friend’s party or school trip – so years ago. The weather was fine and we stopped off at The King’s Oak afterwards for cokes and crisps. We managed to walk just over 5km and I didn’t even feel tired, which was a bonus. Mum cooked roast lamb when we got in, which was a lot better than my attempt the previous week – and of course it was so good to see her, after a fortnight on my own.

And then last week, I had the Thursday and Friday off work and while I planned on being quite chilled, it was a busy couple of days. Mum and I went to Lakeside on the Thursday, as I was getting my phone fixed and of course, we had to have lunch at Wagamama. We did a little bit of shopping but it wasn’t long before I was getting tired and needed to go home... I don’t think I can hack shopping centres anymore.

What have you been up to lately?

Love, Lucy xx
