On A Week In Dorset

 As I briefly mentioned since getting back, Dorset came at exactly the right time for me. After a few days of feeling a little down in the dumps about summer ending and other little things, getting away with the girls for six days to the beautiful English seaside and two days of sunbathing weather thrown in, I was feeling like a pretty lucky gal.

I think I've just been feeling a little nostalgic over the past few weeks, I've just started my last year ever at school, I've got the whole process of applying to university starting to already stressing out, and I'm busy every weekend until the end of October. I guess it just feels like life has suddenly got so busy. And I don't feel like I've even got time to breathe. Inevitably, not all of this went away on holiday with the girls, feelings have a habit of lurking where they're unwanted, don't they? But it did cheer me up and take my mind off it all for a while.

We stayed in Lyme Regis which is such a beautiful seaside town. I think I'll most-probably always be more of a city girl, but I love escaping to seaside towns for breaks whenever possible. There's something I find so peaceful about being by the sea which is something you just don't get in the same way in London.

As you can probably imagine with six girls on holiday, with three of us sharing a double bed, many films were watched, much food was eaten, and lots of laughing was had. We even threw in the ALS ice bucket challenge and a workout midway through the week, which I was still aching from three days later (my friend Flo is a rower - it's safe to say I'm not letting her lead a workout ever again!).

 Despite the town being stunning, the sun putting his hat on for us (even if only for two days out of six), the many films watched, Frozen sing-a-longs, not losing at mini golf (which is a miracle) and alcohol consumed, the best part of the week was definitely having some much-needed girl time. I really have the most wonderful friends, and after such a busy summer and what's bound to be an even busier year, it was fab to spend some quality time with them before the craziness begins.
