Summer's over, hello Autumn!

Everyone does a weekly Intsagram round up; I thought I'd do a summer round up, as it has definitely gone for good now, no crazy 'Indian summer' heat waves predicted this weekend. And sadly I don't have Instagram, as I don't have a phone that uses it,*sniff*
Here it is, my attempt at a round up. So from left to right, on each row:-
Malmo(Sweden), Nyhavn in Copenhagen, Malmo, my garden in the sun, Chameleon in a pet store, my tattoo-still fresh!, Grilled Chicken with mustard sauce, nails from a post, Meaty tapas, Sagrada Familia-Barcelona, Sitges-Spain, Freddie in the garden, Olympic stadium, Portsmouth, The HMS Warrior in Portsmouth docklands.
That was my summer, I went away a few times, it doesn't feel like nearly enough! I ate too much, and drank too much- sometimes not in a good way! (1. drank too much and fell asleep in a cinema-I had paid for the film though, not drunkenly wandered in! 2. Recently drank far too many fruity daiquiris and tested my regurgitating abilities :s) I saw films and listened to music and had road trips in the sun; I saw friends and family and the Olympics and even got a (Very) slight suntan! 

I wish I could have spent the summer in a hot country, on the beach everyday; I wish I could have gone to festivals and danced the night away in wellies and flower headbands- but hopefully next summer? Especially what with Glasto tickets coming up soon!
What did you do over the summer? What do you wish you'd done? And are you planning for next summer already, or are you looking forward to winter?  Winter is coming! (small GOT reference)

I'll leave you with a pic I took of two terrapins when I was in Portsmouth- they were best buddies!

  1. Very nice summary of your summer, all in one collage. London was definitely busy this summer. Giving you all special memories of all of the events that happened there. I am Glad that you had a great and memorable summer. I had the same fun and memorable summer too. I am also glad to have met more kind and talented bloggers just like you this summer. May you have a fantastic autumn and a mild winter in the UK. :)

  12. I know what you mean... I also would have liked to spend summer in a hot country, in a way how I imagine a perfect summer- reading all the books I wasn't able to read in the last months and laying at the beach everyday, swimming, reading, drinking cold juices and eating greek salad ;) But now I am also happy that fall is coming. I love fall- I get more relaxed in fall and this also feels quite good :)

    1. I agree, I guess without the seasons, we wouldn't really have summer, so we can appreciate it when it's here :)

  13. It's strange to think that while you just finished your summer, mine is about to start (because I live in Australia). Haha, and your description of what you wanted for summer sounds awfully like what I have planned :D

    AND IT TOTALLY GOT THAT GAME OF THRONES REFERENCE. It's a little sad when I say "Winter is coming" and my friends go "you're so dumb, it's spring". The humour of GoT fans is obviously too high order for normal people :)

    1. Ah jealous! while I'll be wishing I was somewhere hot on a beach- you'll actually be on one!
      Haha I agree, luckily all my friends are massive GOT fans, so we call say 'winter is coming' a bit too much :)
