 Monday was time for a simple family BBQ.

 Couldn't miss out this little feller, Think he ate most of the sausages.

I think its fair to say this weekend summer arrived. I always think May seems to have the nicest weather, as my birthday is in May (11th, not long now) I have noticed the past few years I have had very warm birthdays. I would say May is my favourite month 2 bank holidays my birthday and who could forget May the 4th be with you. (sorry I'm rambling now).

This bank holiday for me I spent Friday staying in where I ended up making an impulse purchase of 2 pairs of Jeffrey Campbell shoes, I think this was the only time in my life I checked my bank balance before buying something and I was rather proud of myself for doing so. (lean in close. whispers: psst they was a bargain at £65 each). 

Saturday I spent a rather long time looking looking in every shop in Leeds for a nice hat. Since I can't afford my hair doing until pay day I had the option stay in bank holiday Sunday or buy a hat!! I decided to buy this trilby from Topshop, what in the end I didn't wear as I changed my outfit choice. Typical eh? I then headed of to watch some local bands. 

Sunday of any bank holiday means one big night out! (or day) If your from Leeds then you will understand there is only one place to be. The courtyard party! Since we got there rather late unfortunately we couldn't get in. boo hoo. So we did the next best thing and went to the bar next door and spied through the barriers #saddos, before moving on to possibly every other bar in Leeds. I would recommend The Alchemist it has the most amazing views. 

Finally Monday was spent the 2nd way bank holidays are intended for, a nice family BBQ. Since my vegetarian dad likes to take control of the BBQ this usually means enjoying some nice charged burgers. Today I also thought I was witnessing witch craft when my dad managed to extinguish the BBQ with lighter fluid!! 

How was your bank holiday?
