Can you believe that half of the year is already over? Why is time flying so fast?
June was hectic, with an unexpected trip back to Australia and lots of site seeing from Windsor.
Here’s an update on life in June.
Less cakes but my diet is still not great. I’m organised with breakfasts and dinners but really struggle with lunches. I tend to grab something quick, which doesn’t always lead to the healthiest decisions. Lets see if July is better food wise.
Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver. When I first started this book I wasn’t entirely in to it. It’s very Groundhog Day, but I’m getting more and more interested to see where it goes.
I was three quarters of the way through the new season of Orange is the New Black before heading to Australia. Now Nick wants to watch the new season with me. I haven’t told him I’ve already watched most of it, so looks like I’ll be re-watching it very soon.
It got so hot in the UK before I left (us Aussies never thought heat there was a thing, but it is!) I even started wearing shorts in public – whoa. So many summer clothes were purchased to deal with this sudden heat wave.
My parents were with Mel and I for the whole of June so we took them to see some sites. We went to Oxford, Camden Lock Market, Cotswolds, Brighton and Windsor Castle. The most interesting of these places was Brighton. I had no idea there was a massive amusement centre on the Pier, or that there were so many quirky streets. I can’t wait to go back.
I constantly feel like I need to change my style. Since having Ryan I just feel like a dorky mum. I have a Pinterest board set up for fashion inspiration, so this is something that I’m looking to get more in to later on.
Being back in Australia. I forgot how light and girly my Melbourne home is compared to the terrace in Windsor. It’s also good to be back with Nick. Ryan was in desperate need of some daddy time after having way too much Aunty Mel and mummy time.
That Ryan behaved himself on the flight back from the UK as I was travelling solo with him, and he did. He was a champion. In fact, the flight was a breeze compared to baby jetlag, which still hasn’t gone over one week later. I feel like I have a newborn again!
Heaps of catch ups with friends; it’s been way to long since I’ve seen everyone.
Ryan has developed quite the personality. He’s very vocal, giggles uncontrollably, and can now sit from being on his stomach. It’s the best age ever.
Well that’s June, filled with outings and travel. I’m not sure how July will be as I have no major plans yet, but who knows what could happen last minute.
