July in Numbers

 This year is absolutely zooming past, I just cannot believe that July has already been and gone! It's been a good month, and a productive month. We've still been pretty busy at work, and my weekends have been filled with fun as well. Both of which makes time fly past even quicker! As they say, time flies when you're having fun which I most certainly am.

1 night spent at Saffron Walden carnival which was great! Dan and I went along with Georgia from Mapped Out Blog and her boyfriend. It's safe to say that I needed a lie-in the next day after £5 beer cups of Prosecco! We danced the night away to 5 After Midnight. The carnival in my local town is always so much fun, and brings back great memories from my childhood!

15 hours of Jane the Virgin, one of my all-time favourite shows. I was so excited to see this was back on Netflix!

1 evening spent at Battle Prom with my work colleagues for our summer do! I've never really done anything like this before, but I really enjoyed myself. There was music, and fireworks - and my favourite, a picnic!

4 books read - I've got my reading mojo back after a few slow weeks. One of the best book surprises this month was The Girl Who Saved the King of Sweden. After trying to read this a few years back, and not really enjoying it, I was pleasantly surprised by my attempt to re-read it. It was one of the best books I've read in a while!

1 episode of Alaska Live, the new wildlife programme on the BBC. It was incredible! I loved it, and can't wait to watch more. Definitely worth a watch!

What have you been up to this July?

June in Numbers

 I love June, even despite the unpredictable English weather! It's usually the start of the summer, and I always find myself doing more at the weekends in June which is lovely. It's been another busy month, even though Dan was away for most of it!

1 hen do! I headed down to Canterbury to celebrate our friend Amy's hen do. We had a lovely time celebrating with the bride-to-be. We made chocolate-themed creations in The Chocolate Cafe, went punting on the river and played some hilarious games. Our evening was spent at Oscar and Bentleys which served the most incredible food. We finished off by dancing the night away at The Ballroom which never fails to disappoint.

4 years with Dan. I cannot believe that four years has passed. I'm so glad that I met him back in first year, and we've had so many amazing adventures together. Dan was actually in the US on our anniversary so we're hoping to plan a stay-cation this summer to celebrate properly!

2 weeks of fending for myself! As I mentioned, Dan went to America for two weeks so I was left to fend for myself send my parent back to hell again and move in. I had a lovely time with them both, and it was very good timing because my dad had to be away quite a lot during those weeks too, so mum and I both had company!

23 episodes of Love Island. I am addicted, and there's no going back. My favourites are Camilla and Montana. Whilst it is total drivel, I do really love it!

2 blog posts. I've lost my blogging mojo a little bit. After moving house, and changing jobs in January, I've not properly stopped yet. Most weekends are busy, and I'm feeling a little tired. Happy, but tired so sadly my blog has taken a little bit of a back step!

What did you get up to in June?
