The Best Thing About This Month

So August here is the second month of our 2 month summer break for schools.  It was awesome to have Ollie home but tomorrow he returns to school.

We had a great month actually.  It started with a hike through the Mournes which ended with James and I totally drenched.  The weather was awful!

I passed my driving test!!  Unexpectedly.  I thought for sure that I’d fail for the 4th time but I passed, much to the relief of my husband.  The boys and I went to Scotland with my Mum and stepdad, Harry.  A whole week of exploring Scotland… the scenery was breathtaking and we even got to see dolphins!  Our community policemen visited our house after I sent an email telling them of Ollie’s avid interest in all things policey.  I went to 3 gigs… 1) Twin Atlantic and Biffy Clyro 2) Tom Odell and Kodaline and 3) Bastille and The Killers.  I took part in my first ever 5k which I completed in just over 37 minutes… dang proud of myself for that!!!

I don’t know how next month could possibly top this month, but I’m also looking forward to getting back into routine and things being a little easier before I start my Open University course in October!

    Sounds like it has been a great month for you – and well done on the driving test and the 5k. Hope all goes well with Ollie going back to school tomorrow and good luck with starting your OU course. Have enjoyed taking part in your blogging challenge, thank you for hosting it 🙂
