My favourite beach...this is five minutes from my parents house!
Hi Guys, I'm loving August this month...how about you? The weather has been a bit hit AND miss....sadly..it has felt a bit Autumy these past few days...I love Autumn by the way but just not in August! Here's what else I have been loving this month.
Everybody Is Happier! The sun is shining (mostly) the air is drier, people are staying out longer, having drinks after work, people are in better moods, lots of people are having holidays of some sort, everyone is consuming their body weight in Ice-cream, everyone seems to be falling in love....everyone in happier. Enough said!
Outdoor Evening Meals Summer months, I feel everyone makes that little bit more effort to be sociable....the days last longer and that coupled with the good weather...means you tend to eat more meals out.....restaurants,cafes...but none of them quite match up to have a delicious meal with good company, good wine, scented candles..than in your very own back yard!...Such a lovely refreshing change......and even better than that...you can wear pj's if you want..with no one batting an eyelid!
Wearing Shoes With No Socks I know this may seem like an odd one...but I am forever losing my socks..or ripping holes in them (I seem to have very strong large toes, that's my theory on this problem) so the warmer weather is perfect...warm weather calls for no socks....if I'm wearing a plimsoll..I normally put odour eater in the bottom...they work a treat.....everyone sweats it's perfectly normal...but having sweaty plimsoll...is a no go zone with me.
Bank Holidays Normally everyone gets a tad excited at Bank Holidays sadly this one was a wash out but it was an extra day of work, so that was the silver lining in the very dark clouds.
Holiday Feeling Yes, it's that one again....I love the Holiday feeling August tricks us all into .which is why everyone is happier...especially in London with different festivals and concerts...for many of us..this is our staycation holiday.
Ice Cream Yes, I know I mention this all the time..but there's something different about eating ice cream in the summer..it seems to hit the spot more...even though we can eat ice cream all year round...actually every day if we wanted to...there's something that bit different about eating ice cream in the summer...I'm always tempted by the vans that jiggle around...very old school...I know...but they are always similarly parked in a park make that every park 24/7 in August....so you don't have to go far for one...I probably eat more ice cream in this month then maybe all the months put together...probably...which is a scary thought but actually the truth.
Going To The Beach Every Weekend I'm lucky I have this option...like I mentioned in my goals post..I have family who live by (read on) the coast so I can visit every weekend.....when I visit I normally stay for the weekends anyway..so I leave my bag there...my bags contains a few bits of clothing and a few toiletries) very basic...but it s a very small bag..doesn't take any room...so I'm good to go..without worrying about packing...the only problem with this..is sometimes a weekend isn't long enough..and you don't always want to come back...
Paddling Pools I don't actually have a paddling pool but my family members do...and I do like to take a dip...obviously the kids come first...so they get first dips then I'm allowed in...I tend to sit mainly with my feet in the water....supervising my little niece and nephew......I''ve been trying to persuade my sister to buy a bigger pool for me sorry I meant the kids...and I will be keeping my fingers crossed....although my parents live by the sea...doesn't mean I want to go swimming there!
Denim Shorts And Flip Flops I normally hate feet and I am not a fan of other peoples feet apart from my sister as she really does have the most attractive feet ever.. a UK 4...she's 5ft 5..she just has small feet...my feet are small as well..but they are much wider..and I have a real grip with this..as it means I have to either go up a size or choose shoes with rounded toes......all this gets shove to the side come August and I have temporally amnesia....as I adorn flip flops for one month only....I like to team with shorts...denim if I can..normally as I have a pair of fraying jeans...I just can't bear to throw away..so I cut them down to size..no hot pants for me...they wouldn't be fair to everyone around me!
Birthday Is Closer....I like August for that reason alone..is that means my birthday is close by! Not sure what I'm going to be doing yet...I never plan a three day bash or anything like this....(although if anyone else wanted to do this for me..that would be totally fine with me!) I tend to have a meal out with friends/family...and that's me done!
