I feel as though I’ve blinked and August has gone. In fact, that kind of applies to the rest of 2016 as well. Where has this year gone? Really? So, what did I get up to in August?
Firstly, I spent a lot of time watching Netflix (thank god for Netflix!) because my Sky box decided to break and it took two weeks for an engineer to come out to fix it. Just in time for the football season to start, I might add. What wonderful timing….!
Line of Duty was the first thing we watched and boy are we now addicted to the story line. WHY didn’t I watch it before?! We also have been enjoying Impractical Jokers. Love those two shows!
Slimming World wise I’ve been really enjoying overnight oats with raspberries or strawberries chopped up. I particularly like raspberries, I end up with pink overnight oats. They are honestly the best breakfast and I often eat them at my desk when I get to work rather than having them at home. They keep me fuller for longer.
My boyfriend and I also sat down to sort out our New York planning, we spent a couple of hours looking at the map and highlighting where we want to go and as you can imagine there were a lot of places. I honestly can’t believe I’m going to New York in two weeks. TWO WEEKS!
This also means that I’m nearly 30 which to me is crazy. I’m so excited to be spending my 30th birthday in the place I’ve always wanted to go. I also chose the handbag I’ll be buying over there for my birthday. I can’t wait to explore a city I’ve never been to in a country I’ve never been to and enjoy myself fully making memories I’ll never forget.
I also went on a trip to London with one of my best friends, we had such a nice girly weekend and had fun being tourists which isn’t something I do often. We’ve started planning our trip for next year already – there’s talk of going to a show and having afternoon tea as well.
Now, we’re at the end of August *gulp* and I’m spending the bank holiday weekend in Scotland visiting my parents. I try and go to see them before I go away for my birthday but this weekend is even more special as it’s my Dad’s birthday so it will be nice to spend it with him.
For the next week or so my blog posts may be a little sporadic so bear with me and normal service will resume shortly. Yes, I am aware that I sound like some kind of train announcement.
