Looking back ~ August 2016

Here we are, yet again, at the end of the month, with a look back at last month! (In my defence I started this post at least two weeks ago, and then didn’t complete it!) Ah well, I’m committed to the idea now that this is never going to be something the I post at the ‘right’ time, so you’re getting it now!

August had a big gaping hole in the middle of it where I didn’t get to go to Mark Kermode: Live in 3D, because there wasn’t one. I know that sounds melodramatic, and of course, it is, but it is something I look forward to, and so it feels like a long time since the last one! The next one is on Monday, so I’m very much looking forward to that.

In other news, you know all about my trip to Liverpool, as I blogged about it here. The five days that I took off was the longest I’ve had off work since Christmas, and will be the longest I have off until January, so it was a very welcome break, and I had a lovely time.

I also went to a hen afternoon at the beginning of the month; it was for my lovely university friend Montanna, who is getting married in October, and she had a whole weekend of fun planned, but I only joined in for the Afternoon Tea at the Royal Garden Hotel. It was very lovely, and it was great to catch up with some university friends that I haven’t seen in a while. I wore a dress that I bought specially from Lindy Bop, and I even tried some victory rolls in my hair. I’m not sure the hair really worked, but I loved the dress!


I also managed to take and pass my theory test. I started driving lessons a little while ago (something I need to blog about as it’s a 34 Before 34 item), but I have had to take a short break for now while I work out how to change driving instructors! But my theory test is done and dusted, which is nice.

August also saw a trip to Scunthorpe, which is where my friend and housemate Hannah is from, for her niece’s christening. This was a lovely weekend, for which I had to buy yet another new dress (I know, right?).


With that, I’m struggling somewhat to think of anything else that I did! Instagram is usually my friend for this monthly post, because I tend to upload photos of most major social events onto there. I guess I just wasn’t all that social in August.

Now, shall I promise that my September post will be a bit more timely? Probably best not to…

    Ah, it’s such a shame when you have to buy *another* new outfit for something, isn’t it? You look really lovely in your green dress, I’ve yet to buy anything from Lindy Bop but I’m always soon tempted!
