The Boat Race 2016

I hope you all had a relaxing bank holiday weekend! I'm home in London now for about a month until I go back to Exeter for my end of year exams and I'm very excited about it. I'm loving university but it's nice to come home to recuperate after a long term.

On Easter Sunday my friends and I went to watch the Oxbridge Boat Race in Barnes and it was such a lovely day so I thought I'd share a little photo diary today. One of our friends, Issy, rowed in the Oxford Ladies' reserve boat, Osiris, and so of course we decided to go along and support her.

Being able to see Issy row in this race was so incredible. I've never been sporty (although I have picked up netball again at uni after five years!) and, because of that, have always been a little bit in awe of people who can give up so much of their lives for sport. So to be able to physically see one of my friends achieve so much made me burst with pride.

It was such a wonderful day - the weather may have been slightly bipolar, with it one minute being the perfect sunny day and the next it hailing, but for the most part it was sunny and I got to catch up with some of my favourite people in the world over many glasses of wine. We've decided to make it a yearly tradition and I, for one, can't wait for next year! Here are a few photos from the day ::

I hope you all have a great weekend!
