Like I’ve said before in several posts when we get sunshine in Scotland we tend to make the most of it. Visits to the beach, going to the park and just generally making good use of the sun. I spent way too much time out in the sun these last few days and it’s left me somewhat burnt. I seriously look like a lobster or tomato. I am not showing you a picture you’ll just have to take my word that it’s pretty bad.
I’m hoping that it dies down tomorrow as I’m supposed to be spending the day with my brother. I don’t really fancy walking around with a bright red nose. Yesterday was a pretty fantastic day. I met up with a friend and we went of ice cream and strawberry milkshakes. We had a chat and a wander around some shops before we went our separate ways. Today I basically sat outside reading and I managed to finished the first book in the Infernal Devices series, A Clockwork Angel.
I fell in love with Cassandra Clare’s story telling whilst reading The Mortal Instruments series and if I’m being honest I wasn’t sure how well this series would live up to my expectations. I didn’t think any characters would or could be better than Izzy, Alec, Jace, Clary, Simon and don’t forget Magnus and Sebastian. I found myself suprisingly wrong which I’m happy about. I’m starting the second book, A Clockwork Prince, tonight and I’m excited about it. On that note I’m going to stick my head in a book and live in a fictional world for a few hours. Hope you all have a lovely fun filled weekend.
