I think I must say this every month but I honestly don’t think it has sunk in yet that it’s August. This year seems to be going too quickly but it’s also not a bad think. If you saw my last post than you’ll know that July wasn’t exactly the greatest month for me (or my family!) so I’m hoping August will be a little bit more kind to us.
01. I think August is going to be a funny old month for Elliot and I as he’s not been at work over the last few weeks as he got made redundant. Luckily he’s got another job and will be starting it after this weekend. It was a very stressful time for him so I’m glad he can concentrate on a new job and new challenges. Getting back into some kind of routine will be good for both of us I’m sure, although it will be weird after spending a lot of time together over the last few weeks!
02. I’d like to spend a little bit of time this month re-evaluating our space and making changes if need be. We have a new bed which is such a luxury so I think perhaps swapping out some of our sheets for new ones would be a good idea. I have just sold our mirror too so I’m on the hunt for a new one (stuck between getting something gold or rattan..) and I also want to update some of our cushions. We have the inserts but I’d like to refresh the space by getting new covers however I struggle with pairing them together. I think I need to spend a bit of time on Pinterest!
03. I have touched on this above, but with Elliot starting his new job, I’d like to get back into some kind of routine and get both of us slightly more organised. It seems the “everyday” kind of appointments (like visiting the dentist!) just get pushed aside as there never seems to be any time. I’d also like to make sure that I have some more time to dedicate to blogging as it’s something that always seems to go as soon as we get even slightly busy but I need to make sure I make time for it!
I don’t think we have too much planned for this month which I’m actually glad about as I need the downtime! We have some family time planned as there’s a birthday coming up but apart from that, I think just relaxing, enjoying the weather and seeing what we get up to will keep us busy!
What have you got planned for this month?
