Anyone else feel like summer lasted for about two weeks? Granted, I’m in Scotland and so I’m lucky if I even get a two-week-long summer, but I’m very much in denial about the fact that we’re halfway through August. Feeling a little bit down about the grey sky out my window, I decided to make up a sort of summer photo diary for 2018 with some happy little memories from May till now – although I quickly realised that there’s quite a lot of photos over the course of four months, so I’ve split it into two parts! Here’s my May and June:
Completing my dissertation! And therefore, the official start to summer…
Shortly going blonde thereafter. And then having to get it fixed ’cause I did it as a DIY job, AGAIN…
Fixed. On the train to Edinburgh to see Wicked! (I was way more excited than I let on here)
Homeward bound, part 1. One of my favourite views on the way down to the ferry back to Islay, at Inveraray!
Homeward bound, part 2… feat. my second-favourite view on the way home… home!
Setting up for festival day at work. Took this photo just because it’s like my favourite day of the year… ended up being the day I met my boyfriend!
Myself and Anna the same day… just before I drunkenly bumped into said boyfriend!
Being at home = back with this one <3
Fab weather meant work lunch breaks in the garden… which meant Ellie sitting in the way for attention
After meeting him at our festival day, I went out to Glasgow on a first date with boyf… This is all I have to show for it in terms of pictures though! A whisky sours I was going to show work when I got home hahaha
I love my job sometimes. Came home that week to come along on a foraging week. Had a gorgeous foraged BBQ on the beach!
… Or at least, I loved it until the day they put me on a small boat. Not the best islander in that regard.
But then I loved it again, because VIEWS!
In the meantime… the date worked out! Woo!
Discovering new parts of Islay. Trying to look cultured at the same time.
Taking selfies at my interview for entry into my masters degree. No idea why I felt the need to take a selfie, as I was absolutely terrified at this moment in time. But I got accepted four hours after, so at least it’s a happy photo to look back on now!
More unnecessary selfies, this time during our community day at work. Painting our village hall on the island’s hottest day of the year = not as fun as I made out in this photo
TRNSMT! Where I then complained about the heat the entire five days, despite my previous comment. I miss that noodle bar behind us.
No idea who was on the stage at this point…!
Part 2 will be up sooooon!
