Woohoo! The summer holidays have finally arrived and they’ve brought a whole load of reasons to celebrate. We’ve rounded up the top five moments that are guaranteed to give you that #minifistpump feeling this summer.

1) Comfortable commutes

For six glorious weeks, you won’t have to suffer the indignity of having your face pressed up into someone’s armpit, elbows in your ribs and the precarious balancing act that usually accompanies your daily commute.

2) Winter woollies are an absolute bargain

Who in their right mind buys a coat or a woolly jumper in the middle of a heatwave? You, that’s who. Get your savvy shopper hat on and grab yourself a bargain before the rain starts again.

3) No more road rage

For a few blissful weeks, your drive to work feels almost (almost) like a swanky car advert…windows down, breeze blowing through your hair and the roads completely empty. You’ll probably even get to work with enough time to navigate the terrifying coffee machine.

4)  Plenty of excuses for takeaway

Let’s face it, it’s probably going to rain just as you get the barbie out and you’ve got loads of expectant hungry friends and family over. But, this doesn’t have to mean the end of the fun. Think of rain as a tasty blessing, bringing with it the opportunity to order yourself almost anything your heart desires… who wanted soggy sausages anyway?

5) Free day off!

Well, not quite, but longer evenings mean there’s almost a whole new day waiting for you when you finish work. So swerve the housework and get outside instead. It’s also a pretty good excuse to grab yourself a takeaway too, after all, it’s probably too hot to be cooking…
