August Review


Wow this month sure has gone quick, it doesn’t seem two minutes since we were saying goodbye to my little boy’s nursery staff and now we are getting ready to meet his new Reception teachers!

August tends to be a mixed month around here as we have school holidays (which are both a blessing and a curse), my eldest’s birthday and usually very unpredictable weather.

Anyway, here’s a roundup of what I’ve been up to during my first month of blogging and what you can expect over the coming months

Enjoying: The school holidays and spending time with the kids, friends and family.

Looking Forward To: Getting back into a proper routine once school starts again next week.

Planning: My blog content so watch out for lots of new posts about my GTD set up, autumn capsule wardrobe and much more!

Making: Dinosaur crayons out of all the broken crayons we have around the house.
