OMG how quick is this year going??!!!
I've been a bit absent from blogging but as im coming to an end on my course & things should be settling down soon I hope to be back to it, writing and reading. I cannot believe it is August already. Where is this year going????
June was quite a busy month for me. I thought I would round it up with a collage of my favourite moments from the month with a short explanation.
What isnt pictured is my Grandmothers (Nan) move to a temporary house for about 6 months whilst her house is being made more safe and accomodating for her now she is on her own & because of her Parkinsons Disease.
The first picture is of me & my auntie, a lot of people say we look like sisters, in our local Wetherspoons for our cousins hen night, it was a good night. The bride to be was absolutely blotto & was hysterical.
Next is the beautiful baby Thora. An old work colleague gave birth to this little cutie back in May. Such a quiet & calm little baby, I held her in my arms for 2 hours without a mumour. I want one with that sort of temperment please!!
The third picture is of my Beauty & The Beast collection which I added to by making my own Enchanted Rose ornament. There will be more about that in another blog post. I love how my collection is growing.
Picture number four is sgain another little craft creation by myself. Ive been meaning to get D's initial for a while & wanted to update mine to reflect the new colour scheme I plan on having in the bedroom. Again I may feature this in another blog post.
I also went soap crazy this month. I go through phases with smelly things & this months it was hand soaps that got me. The scents I got were Strawberry laces, Bubblegum, Cola Bottles, Love Hearts & Chocolate Orange... I tell you now these smell like the real thing... Im in heaven!!!
So as I said I attended my cousins hen party, well here she is on her wedding day with my Nan & my Great Auntie. My cousin had a small daytime wedding & then we attended the evening. The reception was at the same place where my Auntie had hers back in May so there will be more pictures of the venue when I get around to writing that blog post. (Sooooo many blog posts!!!)
The penultimate picture is of D & Myself a little bit wet at our visit to Dan-yr-ogof caves. (you guessed it there will be a post about that soon too) I hadnt been since I was a kid & it was a good day out despite the weather. I dont know what it is about this girl but it can be bucketing it down with rain & she still makes me smile & enjoy myself.
Finally is of some beautiful flowers that my Nan bought for D's mother who unfortunately broke her arm this month. She's doing fine, is in a cast & hopefully after physio today is doing a lot better. I put this picture in because it makes me smile at how thoughtful my Nan can be to people she barely knows. I am proud to have her in my life & that she is my role model. I am a lucky girl.
July was a pretty busy but good month. August has a few plans already, what with it being my birthday & our holiday to Bulgaria booked. Lets hope the UK has some nice sun for us to enjoy too.
What did July bring you? Do you have many plans for August?
