Wow. I can't believe it's August tomorrow. We go away on holiday in the morning and I feel woefully unprepared. I should really be packing rather than blogging. Ah well, that's what the morning is for!!
It's been a busy old month...
♥ it was our eleventh wedding anniversary
♥ so we went strawberry picking. As you do.
♥ I foraged for elderflowers with a friend and made my very first bottle of elderflower cordial. It was awesome!
♥ the end of term came and went. Lucas will be a junior in September! I feel so very old.
♥ we went to the Foodies Festival at the Harbourside and ate an astonishing amount of freebies!
♥ I bought an ice-cream maker and have been churning all sorts of deliciousness. I need to learn how to make my own waffle cones next. They're ridiculously expensive!
♥ I baked a birthday-slash-retirement cake for my lovely Father-in-Law. You can see Bob the Bass peeking out of the collage above!
♥ the boys spent last Saturday at the Yeovilton Air Day while I chilled out at Jekka's Herb Farm. Such a lush place.
♥ I shared how I made my summery front door wreath.
I've been pinning loads this month--the gorgeous weather is lovely during the day but it makes it really hard to get to sleep at night! So I've been pinning away happily until my iPad falls on my nose and lets me know that it is finally time to sleep...
August, once the suitcases are all finally packed, looks like being fun, fun, fun! We're having a huge family holiday, Doctor Who is coming back, the Balloon Fiesta will fill our skies with bright and cheerful balloons. I'm hoping that we'll get to the kite festival this year as I've never been... We just need the weather to stay sunny, now!
So, how was your July? Did you do anything awesome?
