July Highlights

July has been another good month for me! I can tell in myself that I'm much happier now that uni is over and I can do more of the things I enjoy. Like reading! Some other things that happened to make me happy this month are...

○ Going out for a meal with my friends Alice and Emily and finally getting to have a proper catch up! It had been ages since I last saw Emily in particular because she's a very busy lady.

○ Still on the subject of food... on a very sunny day this month my Dad and I had a drive out for lunch at a lovely little place called The Roebuck just outside of Otley. Yummy food and a good chat with my dad!

○ Graduation! I won't go into too much detail as I wrote this post about it, but safe to say I enjoyed everything about the day, apart from the very worrying rain we had on the way down in the car! I'll definitely count it as one of the best days of my life so far.

○ Pretty much constantly winning the free cake prize for the best team name at the pub quiz we go to most Mondays!

○ A couple of times this month I've had a day off work at the weekend which is when Paul is also at home. This doesn't happen very often so it was really nice to be able to spend a full day with him for once - usually I work evenings when he's just getting in!

○ Watching with amusement as Grandma figured out (by herself!) how to swipe the iPhone screen to look through photos when I was showing her a few from graduation. This is a lady who can't even fathom how to find contacts on a basic Nokia, so you can imagine her surprise!

○ Paul and I have now bought our travel insurance and applied for our visas ready for Florida in September! It's getting so close now and I can hardly contain my excitement, it's definitely going to be the holiday of a lifetime I think.

Hope you've all had a good month too!

  1. I love reading this sort of catch-up post (I'm such a nosey parker)!

    It sounds like you've had a wonderful month - congratulations on graduating!

    I'm going to Florida in October and I am SO excited! I've still not got my visa yet though - need to get a move on and apply.
