Pictures taken on my Canon Ixus, iPhone 5s and my dads Canon Powershot 

So I've been home from Greece quite a while now and I thought after a few days weeks of sleeping I should stop my procrastinating and do a holiday post. I don't have to much too say so I shall summarise so as not to bore you (and because I'm lazy shhhh)

I went to Mykonos, a small island in the Cyclades in Greece. It was beautiful and lovely and I recommend it a lot. The sea was so warm and clear. There were a lot of cats. And I love cats.

Surprisingly I did not eat a lot of Feta cheese, but I did eat a lot of olives and a rather insane amount of yoghurt. I'm going to turn into a pot of yoghurt.

To be honest we didn't do that much. We wanted a relaxing holiday after a stressful year and so we just stayed the pool and sunbathed and swam and went to the beach and it was just perfect.

We did go to Delos, one of the major historical sites in Greece, which was stunningly amazing and so beautiful to see all the ruins from thousands of years ago. It was so hot though and there was no shade :(

I got through 2 and a bit of my book load and can we just take a minute to talk about Anna and the French Kiss. NEW FAVOURITE BOOK. Since I've been home I've just been nagging my friends to read it, they're probably sick of it by now ^_^

The hotel we stayed in was amazing and can complete with its own resident kitten :) I still missed my cat Taf though.

So that is my holiday in a few nutshells (great pun there Helena....... ). It was wonderful and I want to go back. I am having sunshine withdrawal symptoms, which are mainly sleeping. That's pretty much all I've done since I've been back. Since coming home I've been to see War Horse at the theatre (AMAZEBALLS), worked out how to get a bus, had a indoor picnic/movie night where we ended up watching Monty Python, watched lots of friends and bake off and done more sleeping. Sleep is the way forward. How I'm gonna get up early when school starts, I have no idea.

Good luck anyone with exam results, you'll all do wonderful. Since I only did some this year I don't get them till I go back to school, but I hope you all get the results you want :)
