It’s July. It’s summer. I mean it is actually hot in the UK!
I’m not sure how this month crept up on me but I’m glad it is here, I think it is going to be a good one. We are not going away for a holiday owing to our new addition and a fairly tight budget but we have other things lined up to look forward to.
First and foremost being able to get outside and enjoy the sunshine and fresh air is top of my list. Mainly because we can finally use our garden again (the lovely husband has retaken control from the weeds and the cats!). Despite being a small space with no grass, it is serving us wonderfully so far this year. All the photos in this post are from the garden 😉
In the next week my wonderful nan turns 80! Naturally this means a big family get together which I am so looking forward to. I don’t often get to see my cousins, aunts & uncles as we live away from our family and of course everyone has their own families and busy lives now but it is always a fab day when we all come together. This time it is such a special occasion that even my uncle who lives in Oz has made the trip!
Vince has some holiday time coming up so we have some little family day trips planned – the beach, the zoo, etc.. We also have our niece turning 2 at the end of that week so it will be lovely to see Vince’s side of the family as well. The following week my sister in law will be staying with us which is always fun – and a great help! 😉
That will most likely see us through till August although I’m sure we will have plenty of other fun things pop up along the way (like the church summer barbecue tomorrow!). I am quite ready for a fun month before I have to start planning and getting ready for the autumn and thinking about December!
I hope you are all jumping for July too! How will you be spending this summer? I’d love to hear!
