My Month: August

This month has flown by, faster than any other month this year. Perhaps it was how full it was – we went to CarFest one weekend then away for a week in Cornwall. Or perhaps it was the countdown to Jess & Dan’s wedding which is now only 2 days away. Either way, there hasn’t been a moment for reflection so I’m enjoying looking back at my last days of summer before the new season starts next week.

  • The shorts I haven’t had off all summer
  • Summer time gin-drinking
  • Healthy alfresco eating
  • Beautiful evening clouds
  • Making paper poms for the wedding
  • The spare room coming together with hints of coral.
  • Our view from the house in Bude that we stayed at
  • Clifftop and beachfront walks on the north Cornwall coastal path
  • Bodyboarding with Pete
  • A day out in Padstow (more to come!)
  • Dressing for dinner in coral and peach
  • The perfect bank holiday lie in…
  • Sweet Peas from the allotment
  • My favourite summer shirt (from Monsoon)
  • A rare moment of peace on holiday, enjoying the sunset on the beach.

How was your August readers?
