I am still well and truly in love with blogging and it is so much fun. My blog planning spreadsheet each month really helps me to organise what posts I am writing and when they need written by. I love being in a routine of scheduling posts early and knowing I have regular content for my blog. I thought I’d share the 5 posts I liked the most from this month! Here are my top 5 posts for August!

This month marked my 4 year blogging anniversary and I can’t quite believe it. How in the world have I been blogging for 4 years? Thank you so much for all the support that you have all given to me over the years I appreciate it so much. I cannot wait to see what the next year holds and to see what happens in the future!

David and I have been in our own house for over a month now and it has been so lovely. We’ve loved speaking days just sat together reading, watching movies at night and having meals together every night. David has been a star and cooked so many wonderful meals and this is a promise to him written on the internet forever that I will learn to cook more than omelettes and mashed potatoes!

I can’t lie I’ve missed seeing my family every single day but I’ve been talking to them on the phone as much as I can and my wonderful dog Maggie even spent the weekend here which was so lovely. She spent the weekend sat right next to me and it was so nice!

I went back to work completely this month and I won’t lie it was hard. Everything has expectedly changed and there have been issues. I’ve really struggled to get back into a routine again after so long being out of one. I’m not back in my regular library yet either so that isn’t helping but fingers crossed it will happen soon!


That’s it August is finally over. I cannot wait to see what September holds! What has August been like for you and what have you read? Let me know in the comments below!Happy Reading
