I feel like I say this at the beginning of every post but how quickly has August flown by? The time really flies as an adult but as a child I remember a week feeling like a life time.
At the beginning of August my friend Susana, who owns her own balloon decor company, sent me a balloon in a box. Balloon in a box is a service she’s thinking of trying where you can send someone a balloon that will be personalised to your requirements. Susana personalised mine just how I like it, a good Walt Disney quote and a bit of Minnie Mouse. This was a such a lovely surprise and over three weeks later it’s still flying! Susana’s website is here if you fancy having a look: Balloon Zest
August has seen our resident fox spending a lot of time in our garden. He’s getting way more confident and has tried to come in to the house when we’ve had the door open in the warm weather. He’s getting a lot closer to us too as though not afraid at all. As a result I’ve managed to snap some good pictures. I’m trying not to become a fox bore on Instagram but it’s difficult when he’s just so cute!
At the beginning of August it was my husband’s Birthday. We went to Weymouth for the day and afterwards drove over to Portland, then on to Portland Bill lighthouse. It was very pretty there and a good chance to see Britain’s rugged coastline.
On 19th August I volunteered at Lee-on-the-Solent parkrun for the 100th time. I was the RD for the day and had 100 balloons tied up around the finish funnel. I’ve now volunteered for parkrun including both the Saturday parkrun and the Sunday junior parkruns a total of 112 times.
I’m ready for a bit of a rest now and hopefully concentrate on my own running, if this injury subsides.
August Bank Holiday was lovely and hot. My mum came down for the weekend so we went to the beach and out to eat. The weather was perfect and we had a fun weekend.
Let’s hope September maintains the weather although we’re now coming up to my favourite season, Autumn!
