MY WEEK IN PHOTOS BRADFORD, BLACKPOOL & BEACH WALKS | GRATITUDE DIARY #4

I had this week off and it's been divine. I spent half of it in Bradford and the other half in Blackpool. In Bradford we went for a few tasty meals. We went on nice little country walks with the dog and spent the rest of our time lazing around watching TV and films and just enjoying chilled times. It really was just so nice to get away from the city life for a bit and enjoy what nature has to offer. We then went to Blackpool for a few days and did lots of shopping (the buyers there are great I must say, also the further up north you go, the better the fashion sense on average seems to get in my opinion). I ticked somethings off my '24 things' list without even intending to do so. (We watched the sunset on the beach). We also went to the famous pleasure beach theme park where I got to ride the huge Pepsi Max ride and all the rest of the roller coasters there. My favorite rides by far were definitely the grand national and revolution. They were ace! We munched and drunched lots of the naughty delights that the theme park and the seaside had to offer too; from slush puppies to cake to my favorite - good old Fash 'N' Chap shop chaps (that's fish and chip shop chips to the normal person). Then we stocked up on seaside treats and gifts for our families before heading back to Londres. I loved Blackpool a lot, it reminded me a bit of my beloved Brighton - a relaxed ambiance, lots of nice places to eat and drink, beautiful houses, great pubs, the choice of three piers packed with games and arcades, so many fun things to do and full of happy, friendly people. The beach and rides are better in Blackpool though I would say. This was the first time I had ever been to Blackpool, but it certainly shall not be the last. This is the beginning of a beautiful love affair between Blackpool and I, I can tell.

Gratitude diary
1. I am an extremely affectionate person; I really just love all types of affection.
2. There's a guy called Trevor Jamal on Instagram and I love every single post he uploads. All of them about spirituality and love and all of them equally uplifting and inspiring.
3. Recently I love surrounding myself with children. I spent time with my best friends little boy last week and he made me giggle my head off with his authentic little ways. I also spent time with my family friends nieces and nephews this week. They were all so happy and full of smiles and love. One niece turned round and said 'you know, I love you so much' after about an hour of meeting each other, it was adorable! I just find being in the company of children so refreshing. There's no horrible control games or nastiness, they are just innocent and real and realness is all I really need and want from anyone I spend my time with now days to be totally honest.
4. I have always loved spontaneity as a trait in both myself and others, but I had forgot just how much until this week. Being around spontaneous people and being spontaneous yourself makes you feel so alive! Both Blackpool and Bradford this week were just on whims.
5. Whatsapp is the best thing. I love being able to send all my friends voice messages, videos, messages and photos and having them all in one place. If I ever feel lonely or bored, I just have a little glance through my whatsapp conversations and I'm instantly elevated and happy again! What a fabulous little application eh?!
