Heat Wave

I think the bout of extremely lovely weather over the past few days is starting to get to me. I've gone from trying to sit in the bright sunshine at every spare moment, to sitting in the shade sipping on water to stop turning from a grape into a raisin. Even so I'm a little upset that apparently tomorrow is the end of the beautiful warm sunshine. There's nothing that's much more pleasing than being able to have my lunch as picnic outside to break up the day.

Annoyingly the weather only started to brighten up after my birthday drinks on Wednesday. We picked a pub by the riverfront especially to be able to sit outside and enjoy the day and it was miserable. Thankfully Thursday, my actual birthday, was much nicer.

I had a couple of really good days celebrating my birthday. A nice night out with uni mates and an equally nice night out with some friends from home over the weekend. My Dad also cooked my favourite food when I came home which was much appreciated and another friend took me to Pizza Express.

Pizza Express is doing new "diet" pizzas. I quite like the theory behind it. They just cut out the middle of the pizza and put a handful of salad there instead. Instant cut in calories. Even better is the fact that I struggle to finish a whole pizza and I love salad but could never justify a whole pizza and side salad. Now I can have both. Hurrah!

Happy belated birthday!
I know exactly what you mean about the hot weather. It's meant to be a long hot summer so this break in it won't last long.
