make the most of august - bucket list

Is it really the end of July? I want time to slow down a bit because before you know it, it will be Autumn! I'm determined to make the most of this month as I am on holiday from work for six weeks! These are the things I am planning to do in August, weather permitting of course! (Click picture for a larger, printable version.)

I have ticked off the things we have done this month. We have had some lovely weather lately which has meant we could spend much more time outside. We have enjoyed having friends over for meals in the garden and I am engrossed in Gatsby, imagining Leonardo Dicaprio as I read! But we still haven't managed the bike ride and roller coaster ride yet. Watch this space!

I have started a happy book which is fun, recording things that put a happy smile on my face. From little things like watching a butterfly in the garden to sitting outside with a glass of wine. Every time something makes me smile I am writing it down.

What are your plans for August?


  1. Happy summer holiday! So glad they're finally here :) xx

    1. Happy holidays to you too! Have a good one! xx

  2. Read more books! Yes! That is what I intend to do. I'm reading "Eat, Pray, Love" right now. Seen the movie, and restarted the book. I like the "relax more" and "take more walks". Thanks for a great reminder!

    1. I have read three books in the past two weeks while I have been on holiday. It has been so relaxing. I haven't read "Eat, Pray, Love" yet, is it good?
      Enjoy the rest of your week :-)
