Hello August…

Only two days into August and I am already behind. I have been having a bit of trouble with WordPress. It is performing very slowly and all my widgets disappeared. I will check that the slowness is not due to my laptop but everything else appears to be moving along okay!

QUOTE FOR AUGUST

Sunshine quote

“Some Days you just have to create your own SUNSHINE”

Well at the moment this quote is very appropriate as it has rained quite a lot over the past couple of weeks since coming back from Rome. Though this quote does not really refer to the weather. It refers to well being and creating happiness in your own life, or at least that is how I am going to view it.

THEME FOR AUGUST

As you know I love a theme and the theme for August will be – TRAVEL

This will also include updates on the Travel Bucket Lists as I did not get round to doing as much as I wanted in June and July. I am hoping to put some holiday photo’s on from this years trips to Rome, Naples and Pompeii.

Future Travel plans may also be discussed as well as past holidays and day trips.

CURRENTLY READING

I wanted to try and read 25 books during 2017. I am 4 books behind target at the moment.

I am currently reading The Bible daily – I am trying to complete it within the year. I am three days behind on my reading schedule at the moment so I hope to catch up with that over the next week.

I am also reading the last book in The Outlaw Chronicles Series by Angus Donald, entitled The Death of Robin Hood. I think there is a big clue in the title there I am disappointed to be coming to the end of such a wonderful series. I just finished the penultimate book The Kings Assassin and had to start this one straight away. It took me years to find a decent Robin Hood series. It has kept me entertained and at times has made me cry. Angus has a nasty habit of killing off characters I like but as much as I dislike it, I also admire an author who knows when it is the right time and is not afraid. Look out for my reviews coming soon.

HEALTH & WELL BEING

I promise my Health and Well Being updates for August will be better than July’s. If you read my update on Sunday you will know I have not been well over the past 2 to 3 weeks with various things. I am feeling much better this week so I am hoping that it continues.

BU-JO

I must remember to do this….

I will get around to taking photo’s of the Bullet Journals progress. Admittedly there has not been a great deal, though I have done some.

SEPTEMBER

My theme for September is Roald Dahl. As I missed the 100 years of Roald Dahl last year…. I am doing the 101 years this year. I am trying to decide on something to draw/create based on his books so if you have any ideas of which book to choose please let me know. One of my favourite books is The Boy so I might do something from that?
