This past week has been a rather nice one! I enjoyed a slightly longer weekend due to the bank holiday which is always nice.
On Saturday, I went to take some photographs with my boyfriend up the Great Orme in Llandudno. If you haven't been, it's a truly breathtaking place to go. Unfortunately for us, it was windy, raining, and slightly foggy up there.... That's me in my rain coat trying to avoid the wind with my camera!
Sunday was a much nicer day, and so we decided to go on the cable cars after failing to go on them (twice!) It was definitely a case of third time lucky, although maybe not so lucky when we found out we had to queue the other side - for ANOTHER hour! 

Yesterday was a more chilled out day. But a very lovely day spent with the boyfriend!
Tonight, I DID go swimming for possibly the first time in around ten years? I really need to gain some more confidence in the water, since at the moment I'm still nervous. I managed to kick with my float, which I always loved doing as a child. I used one arm whilst having my other arm on the float too. I floated without using anything to help me towards the pool edge, but I'm still lacking confidence when my nose and ears go in the water. It's definitely linked to my 'almost drowning' incident. So, I'm taking it easy, one step at a time to gain my confidence again!

To some of you experienced swimmers, I'll sound like a right idiot. In fact, I feel a right idiot. But it doesn't matter!
Anyway, I hope you're all having a very lovely week so far.

  2. I've never been to Llandudno but it looks lovely, (despite all the rain). I'm the same when it comes to swimming, I lost all my confidence as soon as we started doing it in secondary school and since then I haven't got back in a pool for a good 5 years or so. I would like to get back into it but I just can't face swallowing all that water again haha (: xx

  3. Omg, these pictures are so amazing!!! Love it! Would you like to follow each other?
