#3 – Have a picnic


So I know it’s a bit of a mundane one to start on, but yesterday I had a picnic – being a beautifully sunny day, it seemed like the perfect time to crack out the strawberries and the pimms and set off with a friend to a local park. Here we basked in the sunshine listening to Alt-J whilst snacking on various goodies – paradise! Definitely a good start to my summer.
