This Plus That Equals…. July Plans

This plus that equals…. July plans

Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. This week is all about my plans for July.

School’s Out

Oh I may have to wait until nearly the end of July but the Summer Holidays are nearly here and that means so much time with my boy and I couldn’t be more excited.

I’m excited for the time off work and for being able to just spend some time with the kid, with no rushing and trying to fit everything in around school and work.

We’re going to have so much fun!

Feeling Calm
The build is already taking shape

Building, building, building

It’s started. The extension has begun and July will see it really take shape.

We’re only one week in and already have foundations, so July will see the walls and roof. It will see all the outer physical change to the property.

It will be messy and challenging but at the same time it will be great to see so much change and very satisfying.

When I caught up with a friend the other week she had bought me a crafting journal and I have started it for July.

I’ve planned what I want to do and actually made some time for myself. I love to craft but it always get put to the bottom of the pile, so to actually plan and document what I’m doing is a real treat. I’m looking forward to it.

I also think it will help my mental state, it’s always good for me as I find it relaxing and focusing all at the same time. It’ very satisfying.

I’m really looking forward to this one. We’ve never been before and have been invited along to have a look this year.

I like to try and visit somewhere new or do something new each month so at least I know that’s being ticked off.

The fair itself looks brilliant, filled with all the things we like to see and do and I reckon the kid will have a blast. Plus, Holkham Hall is super pretty and it’s been ages since we visited, so it will be a lovely backdrop to the day.

This gin is so good and the dried lemon and lavender garnish is amazing

Gin Night

When I caught up with the girls for a few drinks last week we were sensible enough to book in a date for our next gathering, very unusual for us to be so organised.

So I’ve got a night of gin, chat and laughter to look forward to.

For a worst case scenario job, it sure bought me the best of friends, even if I don;t work with them anymore!

Finally, I’m linking up with #TwinklyTuesday and #StayClassyMama
