North East Bank Holidays : Hello Summer

I hate to be one of these people who jumps on the weather bandwagon but today was the first really sunny day this year – I didn’t even have to wear a coat or even a cardigan! After how hectic last weekend was with Feel Good Festival and the zip wire, I decided I’d spend the bank holiday relaxing. Today I woke up late with the sun streaming in my bedroom windows and sat and had breakfast at my table rather than dashing around with a slice of toast.

Later I popped into town to do a spot of shopping where I found some amazing bargains in TK Maxx. More on this later though as the dresses I bought deserve their own blog post. After lunch Aileen and I headed down to the beach, sunglasses on & the top down on the car – it was perfect weather, so we walked along the seafront & grabbed an ice cream. Strangely one half of the beach was super busy but as we walked further along from Roker to Seaburn, it started to get a bit more peaceful.

So if you’re looking for something to keep you occupied on Bank Holiday Monday tomorrow, I recommend a trip to Roker & Seaburn beach as the weather is meant to be even better than today! I’ll definitely be heading back to dip my toes in the water and get my vitamin d fix! Have a lovely weekend everyone!
