Over the last May bank holiday a friend and I decided to take a trip to Birmingham. We decided to make a weekend of it so traveled up there by train on Saturday morning, went shopping all day where we quite literally shopped until we dropped and struggled to carry it all. Then we went back to the hotel to get ready and went for dinner and a night out. On the Sunday we went to Slam Dunk festival which you can read about here. On Monday we checked out of the hotel, went for breakfast and looked in a few more of the shops before catching the train home. I dread to think how much we spent. But it was a much needed shop!

May was a nice month. I kicked off the 1st May by waking up bright and early to compete in a 5k race. It wasn't the best I had ever performed but I think that is understandable considering I had just completed London marathon the previous weekend. The next day I then went on to do Milton Keynes marathon, which was horrendous. If I learnt anything that day, it's to not run a marathon a week after the last, no matter what your best friend says.

This May bank holiday brought Slam Dunk Festival, my first festival of the year. Slam Dunk Festival is held from Saturday to Monday. Saturday's festival was held in Leeds, Sunday in Birmingham and Monday in Hatfield. I went to the Birmingham venue. Having previously only been to the Hatfield festival I hoped that Birmingham would be just as good, and it was!
