August has been a pretty sick month. It started with me getting a little side job that includes writing articles for a blog just before I jetted off with Aaron’s family to Mallorca for a week’s summer holiday. While I was there I was messaged asking if I could come in for an interview at an Italian restaurant. And the next week, there I was, serving pizza and pouring Peroni. It’s been a hectic month but I definitely can’t complain. Below are three highlights from the wonderful month of August!
Going on holiday has to be the first highlight. I took it as an opportunity to be truly lazy. I’m used to being all “go, go, goooo!” when I head off into the clouds and to another part of the world. Although we did explore a fair amount, I enjoyed simply slipping on my swimming cozzie and lazily cooling off in the sea. We stayed in an apartment in Port de Pollenca and it’s a really gorgeous location. Recharging the old batteries, reading a new book and eating as much ice cream as possible felt pretty five star as holidays go.
Another highlight is another event I’ve spoken about on the blog before. A couple of weeks ago, Aaron and I went to feed giraffes at Longleat Safari Park. Afterwards we got to make the most of the rest of the park and it was one of the best Sundays ever. I feel so childishly happy when I’m surrounded by animals and it was fun to have a busy Sunday to slot in between lots of days full of work either side.
Last Friday I visited my friend, Callum, from university. Since first year we both claimed we wanted to move to London after uni and he’s actually done it! After a terrible journey on the train, I was delighted to step into sunny London to catch up with my pal. We grabbed an ice cream and chilled for a couple of hours in Green Park. On our way to Covent Garden we took part in some light tourism before we purchased £5.80 beers (eyes widened as we reluctantly handed over our debit cards) and nattered until I had to go home.
Hopefully I’m now in the swing of this adult working business and September will seem less ohmygoodnesslifeissohectic. Although there’s nothing like a bit of self-induced stress which I have decided to give myself in form of challenging myself to blog every day in September. *Hides from Future Kat coming to tell me off.*
