The weather in the UK has taken a turn for the worst and I'm afraid to say I think summer may be over! I have been at a loss at what to do in this recent monsoon season as I can no longer go for ice creams, take long walks on the beach or sun bathe! I thought I would share a few of the things I am currently occupying myself with.

  • Cups of tea are critical when it's raining cats and dogs. It keeps you warm and awake in the cold weather. I take mine with 1 sugar (preferably brown) with a little bit of milk.
  • A good book is another thing that gets me through days like these. I secretly look forward to the rain so that I can spend the day curled up in bed with a good book. I am currently reading 'Goldfinch' by Donna Tartt - can highly recommend
  • Old photos have been making appearances a lot lately. I am very snap happy with my disposable camera, which is fab as it gives you hardcopies to flick through again and again. I have also been in tears laughing over some old facebook photos. Looking through funny photos you've forgotten about keeps spirits high when it's gloomy outside.
  • Netflix has been a godsend over summer. From old classics to new series I have been hooked, even more so when I can't be outside. I have recently been enjoying Orange is the New Black, Utopia, rewatching Sherlock and Mock the Week.  
Let me know what you've been doing to fight the rainy day boredom!
