5 things that made me happy this week

Yay for bank holidays! No work tomorrow, woo!

This weekend we took a drive up to Warwick Castle, and spent the day exploring up there. It was so much bigger than I thought it would be – we literally spent the whole day there! So most of this post will be spamming of Warwick Castle pictures I’m afraid!

1 – Getting through the medical student finals practical assessments this week. It’s always a big one for us office staff every year, and I always get a little nervous the few days before because there’s so much pressure on everything to run smoothly. I had a good long soak in a bath full of Lush at the end of that day!

2 – Visiting the beautiful Warwick Castle, and admiring the stunning gardens and resident peacocks.

2 – Watching ‘War of the Roses – Live’ at Warwick Castle. We were lucky enough to catch the first ever show, so the atmosphere was electric with excitement and adrenaline. The actors were brilliant and really got the story across. I knew a little about the War of the Roses because I studied Shakespeare’s Richard III, but I learnt loads at this show and was really impressed by it.

3 – This library within the castle. This is only a very small section of it, but it was just beautiful. I’m intrigued by the ‘Family Secrets’ books, I wonder what’s in them?

4 – Trying on armour at the castle. Admittedly, I like any excuse to dress up and try on cool things, so this was right up my street!

5 – From Warwick Castle we took a drive on to Chesterton Windmill. I have never seen a windmill like it before – isn’t it just gorgeous? It’s like a temple dedicated to windmills, with that lovely beige stone and those perfect archways. We caught it just coming up to golden hour too, so the light was perfect.

I hope you guys have all been enjoying your weekend, whatever you’ve been getting up to!
