I know the month isn’t over yet and there is still a lot of joyful moments to come, such as, seeing my best friend Nicol on Tuesday (we haven’t seen each other since January) and having our second family house warming on bank holiday weekend.
I just haven’t planned much on the blog this month and didn’t want to go weeks and weeks without posting, so thought I would do my August Joys early.
Painting the bedroom and making herringbone flooring, tatty d goodies, enjoying flowing prosecco at our first house warming and much more has brought me so much happiness!
So without further a do… let’s chat about my joyful moments this month.
Painting the bedroom and doing the flooring – Joe has made a start on the master bedroom and painted the walls navy, which I adore, and as well as this, he has made a start on the herringbone flooring, which looks amazing! I’ve always wanted that particular style of flooring and now I have it.
The master bedroom isn’t complete yet but it will be in a few weeks.
Housewarming party – we had our very first house warming with a bunch of close friends of ours. We had a total of 12 people in our kitchen! Lots of prosecco went round, we had a delicious Japanese take-away and good chats were had.
Cycling 30-40 mins a day – I’m trying to get fit and healthy, as well as lose a few stone. I’d love to get back down to a 10 again. I’m currently a 12-14 and I just feel unhappy with my weight. I’ve been going on the exercise bike for around 5 weeks now and enjoying it!
Watching GOT from the start – Joe and I started re-watching Game of Thrones again! I don’t really remember the first couple of seasons, so, we wanted to refresh our memory’s.
Gousto boxes- making lots of yummy meals. I’ve been doing A LOT of cooking lately, ordering from Gousto mainly and creating lots of fun vegan recipes. All extremely tasty!
Tatty Devine sample sale – I ordered two necklaces in the sample sale which I adore. One’s a rare white dinosaur and the other is a cherry blossom necklace.
Glittery Crocs – I caved and finally ordered a pair, they are so damn comfy.
So, that’s what has brought me joy this month. What has brought you joy in August?
I love the color you picked for you room. It’s such a beautiful night blue color.
And now I want a pair of Crocs as well. 🙂
