Hello August

Ah August. A month that as a child I used to eagerly anticipate thanks to the long Summer holidays and a month that I now look forward to for the lack of traffic on the roads at rush hour, how times change!

Taking a quick look at my diary, I am more than pleased to see a few gaps in there! The past few months have been pretty hectic to say the least and this month I need to put some serious hours in in the gym in preparation for Gran Canaria in just under six weeks time.

Here’s a quick look forward to just a few of the things I’m looking forward to this month;

PREVIEWING | This week I have been lucky enough to be invited along to the HQ of Joe Browns to have a look around and to also have a little peek at the future in the shape of their Autumn/ Winter collection! I’m hoping one or two of the other lovely Leeds Bloggers will be there too and it’s always good to catch up with them.

RELAXING | Call me old if you like, but these days I cannot be bothered going out much at all and I would much rather snuggle up in a duvet fort with wine and a good film, than head out to a noisy bar or club. You might even be able to get away with calling me boring hey? But this month I have a few opportunities to catch up with friends, be it at home with a few quiet drinks or over a meal and I’m really looking forward to unwinding with them wherever we go (or don’t go as the case may be).

CHECKING IN | I can finally check in this month for our flight to Gran Canaria! There’s something really exciting about firing the laptop up and jumping online to effectively start your holiday off by checking in for your flight, after that it’s just four short weeks until we board.

DAYTRIPPING | Paul and I have a little day trip to the coast planned for later in the month to one of our favourite coastal spots and I think it is safe to say that we are both a little excited at the prospect of fish and chips, ice cream and a little walk on the beach.

TIME OUT | This month I get to take my first real time out from the office since April and I am definitely ready for it. At the end of the month I will have 10 whole days away from the hustle and bustle of the sales office that I spend most of my life in and spending a little time on me instead.

So there you have it, a little preview of what this month holds for me. What about you, what are you looking forward to most this month? let me know below and I’ll catch up with you again soon, until then though x
