Tonight I wanted to tell you about our impromptu trip to Hampstead on Monday night. Unfortunately, the fiance and I have got into a terrible habit of collapsing as soon as we get in from work and barely moving from the sofa. I sit on the laptop and blog and read blogs and soon enough the evening has disappeared.
In fact, my blog-life balance has been pretty off lately. I love reading everybody's blogs but as I follow so many this takes up hours of my evening. This means it's almost become a 'chore' and I lose out on making the most of my evenings. So I am making a resolution to spend a bit less time reading blogs - I'm really sorry this means I might not leave as many comments - which I am sad about, but I need to enjoy the blogs I read and not become disillusioned with the whole thing, as I love blogging.
I hope you'll all understand! Up until this point I have read every single blog post of the people I follow, and it's just not manageable anymore - I will resolve to leave more comments on those I do read though!
Anyway onto the ponds....
Yes ponds! In Hampstead heath there are swimming ponds, like an outdoor pool, but just normal ponds. Sounds disgusting right! I thought so too, but with the lovely weather last summer, I gave it a try and was an instant convert. It was so refreshing to swim somewhere other than a boring indoor pool!
This year unfortunately the summer has been far less fruitful and we didn't manage a single trip. That was until Monday night! As the sun was shining and the sky was blue, I suggested it to the fiance, as he was so disappointed we hadn't been this year. I refrained from swimming, but read my Mollie Makes magazine and took lots of photographs, before walking up Parliment Hill to see the beautiful view of London...

|Can you spot him!?|
|Obviously enjoying himself!|
|Then hiding in a 'famous' tree - according to a passer by people leave letters in it!|
|I was born tomorrow, today I live, yesterday killed me.|

It was so lovely to do something a bit different, and not just come home and slob out. We have resolved to try and do things like this a bit more often! We want to make the most of living in such an amazing city!
