Monthly musings: July


So, it’s jog on July and ‘allo August.

I’ve said goodbye to the busyness of school and am enjoying the change in pace as I make the most of the holidays.

July has been more rain than radiance – but the sun made an appearance (finally) and I still managed to have a little fun and created my own sunshine along the way when I needed to.

Here’s a round up of my favourite bits…

  1. Lovely post Niky and lovely wrap up of your month. The only thing I’d disagree with is the last quote about champagne … “red wine is the answer”! πŸ™‚ Haha
    Hope your August is wonderful πŸ™‚
