Weekend Scrapbook




A week late, but I'm really not one for doing anything on time (plus I don't have any photos of this weekend) ...

ANYWAY, I don't know about you guys but I'm a massive sucker for peer pressure, this particular weekend made me realise just how much. Last Saturday Lee and I and another couple (Chris and Hazel if you want names to faces) went on a 12 mile walk around Surrey. Now, I threw a massive strop because the Saturday morning I was being precious and literally could not face the idea of spending a whole day walking. Also what would I wear?!  Lee calmed me down and I text Hazel, the other three were wearing flip flops. To me this was ridiculous, I've walked 12 miles before and flip flops are not appropriate footwear, but what did I go and do... Wore bloody flip flops.

Cue me bitching about it the whole way round, pointing out at particularly grassy or rocky moments what an idiotic choice we'd all made. We looked like we were doing some freaking sponsored walk for Havaianas as Hazel pointed out.

To be fair to them my feet hardly ached, but my ankles had no support which wasn't ideal, we also had to climb up a very steep hillside which was particularly hairy in them...

After the walk we drove to a park via a pizza place and sat out in the evening eating takeaway pizza, drinking beer and trying to fit the four of us onto some weird camping loungers. It was uncomfortable.

  3. Good job on looking happy in the photos ;) I hate wearing flip flops except at the beach- I just do not like them. I probably would have done my fair share of moaning too xx

  5. This looks like an awesome day out, despite the fact you all wore flip flops. Also, the chair-o-plane is THE BEST BLOODY RIDE EVER INVENTED.

  6. Sounds like a fun day, at least you were all in flipflops together! I got lost on holiday in Italy years ago and walked the entire perimeter of Capri wearing flipflops. "Outdoorsy" sensible shoes and clothes are overrated and boring. I went to a BBQ recently where I was the only person not wearing hiking boots. Just incase we decided to hike around the garden or something for kicks...! xx

  9. I have a love-hate relationships with flip-flops. They usually look so cute but I nearly always regret wearing them at some point or another. At least you managed to have a wonderful weekend, I love your photos. Also, thanks for the kind words about my blog, I've followed you on Bloglovin too! :) x
